As far as I know we have no first-hand reports (good or bad) on the 658 cast rims.

While they are cast rims, they look more beefy than many I have seen. Also, apparently the 800 spoked rims aren't really as beefy as you might suspect...

See the pictures at the bottom of this page:

So ... you might buy an 800 and STILL decide the rims are not "fit for purpose" ?
