Whether you're replacing an old tired wheelset or looking for a lightweight performance boost, a new set of bike wheels is one of the most important upgrades you can make. Most commonly, riders will buy a complete wheelset or individual complete wheels, but some choose to build a custom wheel with rims, spokes, and a hubset. Common wheel sizes include 29" ( also known as 700c in road sizes), 27.5", and 26".
There are primarily two rim materials to choose from: carbon and aluminum. Carbon is lighter, stiffer, and often more aerodynamic than aluminum. Aluminum can be more durable, although modern carbon wheel manufacturers choose very strong materials. Rims come in clincher, tubeless, and tubular options for tire compatibility.
It is also important to consider what type of brakes your frame uses. A frame with rim brakes will need a wheelset with brake tracks around the rims. A frame that accommodates disc brakes will need a disc-brake specific wheelset.
