I'm looking for a tubeless wheel set to loose some weight, but I'm hoping to find some blue rims to match my Glory. Wondering if anyone knows of some?

1. You won't save much weight if any at all

2. There are no blue tubeless rims

A can of spray paint....

VOILA!

Only blue wheelset that's tubeless that I can think of is the Crankbros stuff....Might be too lightweight for your intended us though.

tubeless wont help very much considering you're riding a tank frame

saving weight off of wheels/tires/tubes is the best place to save weight and is the most noticable, no offence sir, and i dont want to start something, but you obviously dont know what you are talking about

Just to clear this up, there are no blue DH/FR tubeless wheelsets. The CrankBros Cobalt XC wheelset is tubeless and blue. Not that Cobolts would help for DH, but tubeless blue wheels do exist.

And as others have said, ghetto tubeless is absolutely an option. As well as the spray paint option if you buy other tubeless rims.

Just convert your current rims to tubeless!

Leaf Cycles do some very good Ano Blue Rims that match that blue on recent glory's. I had sold some recently so theres some pics of them in my albums. Just get some stan's strips in there.

Thanks a lot for all the tips guys, yeah i think the best option would be to buy rims have them professionally painted and lace em up my self.
And for those who said it wasn't. Wheels are one of the most considerable ways to lose weight.

But think about it, if you paint over your rims, that may neglect a lot of the weight that you might be saving. I think your best option for saving weight would be getting Pimplites (in blue) and converting them to tubeless. Also, there's a LOT of paint on the Glory DHs. I think some guy lost like a pound by rawing his.
