I like the rims personally. Weight wise, their are more lightweight rims than those. They're not made completely out of C/F, which is why they're only 18 lbs. Been thinking about putting them on my ride, but I'm still on the fence about it.

well consider it like cheap finish or paint on a normal rim. The rim may hold up but one rock or pebble driving down the road hitting the rim is all it takes to crack or chip the Carbon Fiber, not to mention scratching it. Definitely for show and not practical.
