Tim : Love these wheels. LightBicycle are my go-to wheels from now on. Had one set (AR45) built up by them, then ordered some rims (AR55) to build up another set myself. Fantastic build, super light, and will now need these on my mtb too. Can’t wait to build a new set this year. Keep up the good work LightBicycle!!!

Can these rims handle 700x47c tires? I have spare Teravail Canonballs I'd like to use just to save on buying new tires.


LightBicycle 2022/11/30

Hi Paul, Thanks for reaching out! 47c would be too wide for a 21mm internal rim like AR45. Our recommendation is up to 43c tires. The wheel won't perform as good if you put on a super wide tire. However, will you consider a wider rim? A 25mm internal rim would be ok to use the 47c tire you have. If the 45mm is your preferred depth, WR45and WR40 model wide gravel would be the go to rim. If you prefer a pro rim. WR50 would be also a good pick. https://www.lightbicycle.com/700C-road-bicycle-rims-32mm-wide-40mm-deep-symmetric-clincher-road-disc-brake-available.html https://www.lightbicycle.com/700C-32mm-wide-45mm-deep-carbon-road-disc-rim-clincher-New-Gen-Aero-Shape-tubeless-compatible.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Are those AR series rims, because of there out-of the mold nature, UV resistent?

Hi Tom, Yes, for A35/AR45/AR55, these road disc rims are pro series (out-of the mold nature, UV resistant). Thanks, Lightbicycle
