I have been riding on Weinmann 700c concave rims with Continental Ultra 3000 700x28 tires. I inflate them to 100psi and ride them pretty hard. A couple of thousand miles later I have experienced no problem.

I was freaked out by the warning on the Conti tire so started researching hooked rims for use on vintage bikes. Mavic module E was apparently the first rim to offer hooks and used ones and some NOS can still be found in both 700c and 27" sizes. I've also managed to source NOS 27" hooked rims from Rigida and Sun. So I use these to build new stuff.
