I'm thinking about getting a set of white rims. Not that I have anything against velocity (they are nice), but I see them on a ton of rides. Does anyone know of anyone else that makes white rims that are descent?

Don't know about quality. The price is right.

my strong suspicion is that 13mm is the rim width (probably inside width) and not some tire size recommendation. while i don't have a ton of rim specs on hand, that seems perfectly reasonable for running most thinner road tires (19-23, etc).

13mm sounds like a normal rim width. https://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html#width

If you buy those why not just buy deep-v's? They pretty much look the same...

um, those rims are silver. If you want white rims but not velocities, time to take yours to the powdercoater.

Yeah, thanks for the link. You are right, I was confusing the rim specs with tires specs. My bad!
