Anyone holding any? Definitely don't need to be pretty but round would be a plus.

Just mounted my front wheel and it's got a gnarly bend in it to where the rim itself hits the fork leg. Just barely but enough it's noticeable and plus, I absolutely do not wanna run this wheel with the monster engine I have. That would end in disaster. So I'm looking for 2 old 8" wheels.

SdJohn?
V oodoo?

I was gonna say the last ones I had went with that VBA, but looks like they available to you after all Hal . And I see that Mercator has them back in stock now too.

Whqt do they look like?
VBB or VBC.

BEND IT STRAIGHT... remove tyre, fit it, check that it's only side wall/bead that is wobbly, not hub out of round... if it is only wall/bead, spin it till you work out which bit is wobbly & straighten it . Having straight rims is essential, but "wobbly" rims can be straightened pretty easily, as it doesn't take much to cause a wee wobble.
