A rim is the ONLY way to go. Finally found one to fit the Super XL...at a price I wanted to pay.
Rims last longer, are cheaper to replace, and "adjustable" since you can often run a tooth larger or smaller to fit the need. On my 066, I run a 7 or 8 tooth depending on what's on the list that day. The 8 tooth gets you a bit more chain speed in the smaller stuff so you can finish quicker.
Just go with the flow. Spurs just plain suck, and they cost to much money. I'm a legendary cheapskate.
