Umm, I'm 235 lbs and I've jumped curbs (and potholes) with my MATRIX rims (you know, cheap a** bottom of the barrel factory junk wheels with tinfoil spokes) and they're still not unrideable. They ain't true but they are still rideable. (I just put 500 miles on them in the last month.***)

Open Pro rims are used by mtn bikers who don't want to taco a wheel back of beyond. I wouldn't recommend the cheap ones at Performance Bike though. Instead I'd say to get a good handbuilt set with quality spokes.

***Reading this tells me that I really need to get a set of new wheels.
