i just laced up (done by the shop) a red 28 to red hope hub. it replaced an Oozy 295 on the rear of my HT. the 295 was getting bad splits at the nibble interface. the 28 although a tad narrower is a little more beefier (design wize and 40g more) and I had them use "nibble washers" for additional support that should prevent similar splits occurring again.

I've had the Ozzy 295 4 years with zero sign of colour fade

what tyres are you looking to run? i can only run 2.4in max owing to mud clearance and the 295/28 has been fine for me

. but i would be inclined to go 33 to see what all the fuss is about

I’ve run the 28 for years on my DH bike and I’m 240lbs. No issues ever, no fading. Love them. No splits or cracks, stays true. Super strong sidewalls. I’m trying 33s on the same bike now, noticing a lot more superficial nicks, dents and scratches on the rim probably just because of the wider profile, running same tires on both rims. 2.5 grids and riding the same trails. No fading and is still staying true.
Don’t notice any ride difference. I love them both. Basically whatever I can find on sale is what I will get.

My wider rims always end up with more scratches as they are a bit more exposed. I actually am really happy with 25mm IW rims for normal 2.3-2.5 wide tires. I have a set of 32 IW and they are perfect for 2.6-2.8 tires IMHO.

Not quite sure on tiring sizing. Going to probably be in the range of 2.3-2.4 sizing since they have always been good enough for me though. Most likely the basic Minion,HR setup someone one here is running Specialized Purg,Butcher setup too i think whatever that fits on nicely without to much trouble and whatever will protect the rims as much as possible. Kind of looking at the Spoon 32 looking at the pricing difference haha, but i've got some time to decide. Main concern now is whether to get red or black with white lettering rims lol
