eyelets are reinforcements where the nipple meets the rim. They are quite nice to have, makes for a stronger rim, helping the rims cope with the high tensions. Im not sure what kind of riding your doing but I think Sun and Velocity make awsome rims, if your fairly light (sub 175 LB) you can actually get Sun Sub IV on JensonUSA for 15 bucks a piece! These rims are light and sun makes high quality stuff.

What do you plan to do with a rim after you get it.Build a wheel?
