Ok, I don't know whether or not to do this: should I just stick with my Sun BFR's and get a pair of DK HIGH FLANGE HUBS and buy the appropriate spokes and nipples and rebuild the rims or should I go ahead and buy these ARAYA RB-17 RACING BMX / RECUMBENT RIMS : https://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...112936736&rd=1 ? My rims are basically in good condition and I don't really see why I should get these, but maybe there's a good reason floating around. The use is for BMX Racing

do u race bmx? if you dont you wouldn't get a full out racing rim(ARAYA RB-17 RACING BMX). If u do race, you wouldn't go with a high flange hub anyway. Go Rhynolites, they're good for anything

That's a good price on those rims - but they will not hold up to any street use whatsoever. If you jump at all, then stick with what you have or go with a high quality, sturdy, chrome plated rim. The Araya is high quality, just not sturdy enough.
