|During my last ride in terrible rain, I've noticed there was some water in the rims. How do you get the water out? Is there a hole somewhere or a any other good tip!
They are otherwise fitted with GP3000 and supersonic tubes. Would it be easier if I pulled some air out of them?

|Removing or deflating the tire won't matter, unless there is no other drainhole, and you need the valve hole to drain them (no spoke holes). I seem to recall there is a small drain hole, though, but I could be thinking of my Nucleons.

|Had the same problem after 4 hours in driving rain. I took the tire and tube off to drain the water. Good opportunity to inspect things closely.|

|Swing the wheel around so valve is pointed down.
Let wheel sit with valve down.
Let air out of tire.
Peel tire back and watch water pour out.
