Flanged rim v. valanced rim
« on: October 29, 2020, 08:15:38 PM »
I am looking to have some wheels built for a project and wonder whether there are any benefits from fitting a flanged rim rather than a valanced rim. Whatever I fit will be alloy and I am leaning towards valanced as they are easier to clean and don't fill up with water when it is wet.
Your comments would be appreciated.
