    Just curious: I assume you are looking for these in order to run certain tires. What are you planning and why? ( if you don’t mind). Ignore if you’d rather not say. That’s fine. Just trying to learn as I will have to make decisions myself before too long.

      I really like the Desser 27.5” tires. Why? They are the perfect size for what I want to do and they are super tough/durable. The ABW are the best by far for landing off pavement, but I am willing to sacrifice some performance for the durability and 1/3 the cost.

      Grove is not really producing the 8” wheels, hence I am trying to track down a set. I asked and they said the demand is very low for the 8” wheel, I would have been number 2 on the list. It would have been 12+ months is my guess to get a new set of wheels. The Desser 27.5” tire is an odd one.

        Bcone1381 The 10” wheel is really for the Desser 29” or the ABW 35” tires

        I looked into this a couple of years ago with the same tires as a goal. Grove doesn’t really make the wheels, as you’ve discovered, kinda wish they’d stop advertising them. I ended up with the Grove 10” wheels and brakes and run Desser 31s as well as 35” ABW seasonally. I’m glad that The Grove 8” wheel didn’t pan out for me, I’m very happy with the ability to seasonally change to the 35s with the 10” wheels and those big brakes.

        m.mooney I think you may be right, they advertise but don’t actually make/sell them. The 10” wheel and Desser 29” tire is an option.
