I got these rims from amazon and they are great. It was somewhere around 20 for the rear and 18 for the front. http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/5833/sdc10033.jpg The spokes are 12 guage spokes. Standard spokes are .85 in. These are a thick .1 in. as you can see. http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/4475/sdc10037.jpg The rims are 1.425 inches wide which is almost 50% wider than my old mountain bike rims at 1.015. The same tires still fit though which is great. The wheels did come a little scratched but for 20 bucks i was very impressed with the quality.
