Anyone selling wheels (cheap)

Im looking for some solid quality wheels that can take both rim AND disc brakes...135mm rear hub that can take a shimano 8 speed cassette...

specs have to be very specific to that above.

Thanks!

its a mountain bike wheel with a freehub. so, its 135mm spaced, and from the picture you can see that it takes a cassette.

Ive had great luck with Alex rims.
