definately not the delta series that I put on mine I would think that it would be one of the many aluminum rims out there. Which one I am not sure. I am sure someone on here will.

Douglas makes a 0.150 thick wheel, but they are not very sturdy for a utility. The 0.190 is probably the lightest that is durable but it is not flashy.

I would have to say a factory aluminum Rincon/Rubicon rim.If you can find a set ot Oem Grizzly 660 rims,they are the lightest that I have seen,I had a 2002 660 and those rims were xtra light and strong,strongest part of the bike actually,only part that didn't break(seriously).They have the same bolt pattern too.The aftermarket ITP C series like I have are light but the offset they give you gets you filthy and puts alot of fatigue on driver with over 27 inch tires!!!!!!Look good though...I was wondering if I ever bought another bike,if you could order ITP alums and ask for the factory backspacing and offset?Anyone ever done this,if you could that would be great?I know the rims they sent me stick out about almost 2 inches,you alway's end up cross rutting other peoples trail due to the wider stance of the tires,rubs tires and fenders more on tight tree trails,put's strain on rider also.Sorry for long chat guy's........

The Douglas rims bend to easy,even the .190 model.They're made for lightweight sport atv's.

yeah after reading that site I came to the conclusion they are for the sport bikes only. I need some rubicon wheels...how much are they new?

I amagine the rims are costly.I know a factory 450 steel rim is between 65 and 75 $$$.They are strong and lightweight though.

I personally think the ITP C Series that I have are a tad heavier than Rubi oe wheels.For 165 each I would be looking for some ITP.Ask if you can get them with the factory backspacing and offset.I'm curious if you can special request that,it's highly rec if they do!!!!!!!!!

I kinda regret mine,you never can follow other people's trail.I catch myself bouncing from one side of the rut to the other.It's due to the wider stance,I do believe it puts more pressure on ball jts,tie rods,bearings etc..I don't want to scare you from buying them,just letting you know some info.Later.....
