Not those specifically, but other Perf wheels are fineCory

I've ordered three or four wheels from performance over the years--four, I think, a road wheelset and two separate mountain wheels. They've all been pretty good for the money, true and durable and well worth the cost.

I was told by a tech support guy who test rode them last year that they are light, but not too strong. OK for guys up to about 175 pounds (that lets me out) who are not heavy into sprinting.

Just used the Arriva wheelset today, at the Tierra Bella century. They
were great,I was able to accelerate quicker, keep a higher pace and
climb a little faster. The rear felt stiff while climbing,I did notice
alittle more road vibration, but I can live with that. The front was
really lite, I did notice a tiny amount of flex when the magnet hit
the pickup sensor. Maybe the magnet was too close the sensor, i'll
make an adjustment later. The wheelset wt.1610g not bad for $200.00.
