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?
GeekLion?

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.
