Im after advise on a pair of wheels for a 16 stoner :oops:

Im looking at Planet X Model C's, Fulcrum Racing 5s, Shimano RS30s so say a £150 budget.

Any advice would be great

    Bombproof ones such as ProLite Comos could be just the ticket, not light but very tough! And within your budget.

    32 spoke handbuilt open pros on shimano hubs. Will take more than you weigh no problem.

    OPs or Ambrosio Excellights on the best Shimano hub your budget can stretch to.
