With the superlace and oversize ss spokes they ought to be better than BMW stockers??
I'm not gonna run street tires, but I'd like a set of 19"/17" tubeless dualsport rims for everyday use that won't fold if they take a hit or two on fire roads. Planning on running tourance, anakees or TKC's on them.
I think you have pretty much nailed it right there. Chris at Woodys says the rims are as good ( or bad ) as the GS rims and will be stronger with the superlace. I haven't punished mine, but they seem to be holding up to dirt and chatter box gravel roads at speed.
I run the Tourances. I can cross this state or multi states, ride gravel/dirt roads for a couple of days, and then haul ass back home. It works out great for me. With no mud of course.
