Hey, Wesley. Welcome to the forum. I see that you have already received the standard new-user indoctrination.

In my country, we call those rims. Where we live must not be classy enough for you.

No, only dumb and ignorant people (also known as "hoodrats" in America) call wheels "rims".



...and if you learned something new from looking at that picture, well....at least you can read. There is no hope for you.

Here's a fun thing to do: Walk into a bicycle shop and ask for a new rim. You will get something that looks like this:



If you want, they can also sell you spokes and a hub, and assemble them all into a complete wheel.

Same rule applies here.


Don't try to fight it. You're in a forum filled with lots and lots of solid technical info, which happens to be populated with pedantic grammar-***** who enjoy hazing the new folks. Just give in, take your ***-pounding like a man, and conform. We'll use lube, we promise.

They are some imitation of Volk CE28N wheels.

You sure whoever you heard it from was talking about miatas? I heard that about a few forum members' moms as well.
