For what? Xc? All mountain?
What's your riding style? Aggressive?
Do you want to run tubeless?

For xc, they are strong enough unless you're 200 lbs.
If you wanna run tubeless and weight is an issue, stan's ztr line.

Yeah, what he said. Although I'm 6'1" and a bit over 200lbs. , no problems so far with the Amclass wheels. I use them primarily for my single speed surly.
