Go big or go home
I have got alex rims TD17's on my bike now. I have got the rear rim that is just slightly out of round. When I spin it I can see it bend out a bit. Its true enough to not be able to feel it on the ride. It doesnt bump or jiggle or anything that I can really feel. I can very VERY slightly hear it when I'm on the street. The main question is should I get fix it or just let it be. If I do try to fix it should I go with a new rim or take it to the LBS and they can tighten spokes or what ever.
Ride it until it ya think it can't handle it no more. I say get new rims when you got the dough-ray-mi.
just get it trued at the lbs. it shouldn't cost more then 20 bucks
