In 2019, I searched high and low for a set of Weinmann 20" fat tire rims. Only had 100mm rims on ebay. Finally bought a set of non branded 20"x80mm rims from China. They came in 2 weeks, both rims in plastic bag. One was slightly dented, but it was useable. SIngle wall rims though. Cost me $110 shipped. I built a wheel, but never used it. Motor too wide for my bike. Bummer.

Last year, I found out Grin sold the desired rims. Weinman double wall 20" x 65,mm. These were $40 each, but shipping for two was $75, Came well packed in a cardboard carton.

I have bought a lot of stuff off aliexpress. Got scammed once. My fault. ALiexpress would have refunded my money but it was my first dispute and I didn't know you have to ignore the friendly vendor's promises and just click on the refund option.
