Default Rim suggestions - WickedFatChance

Son got hit by a car on my Wicked. No damage to him but Rear Mavic 231( Peter White) out of round by about an inch and a half. Doesn't look salvageable. Any suggestions on what to replace it with? Should I replace both front and back?

Just replace what has been damaged. I would go w/ mavic 217 or 517 or 717.

Agree. 217s are plenty good.

If you want to match stickers, NOS 231s are available on eBay as well. I've seen lots for $30-$50 each.
