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" ?
