nope, but i am probably getting some of the white 24" halos sas over the winter. don't see any reason why they wouldn't be good.

i find it kind of funny one company will advocate double eyelet rims while another will advocate no eyelets. i guess these companies use varying rim thickness to accommodate...which would seem to more or less negate weight differences.
