Higher end rims (like ARC, DT 1700, e13 Plus) are made of welded 6069 aluminum where the lower end rims are typically made of softer sleeved 6061. I've killed an AR rim pretty quickly but have had ARC and e13 Plus last multiple seasons....I agree with your hub comment too though. Should be at least a 350 at this price!
