Are your current XT hubs poked?

Why do you want to replace them?

Why not get more XT hubs? They are usually top of the list of good value for money hubs.

 

XTR is well. XTR.

Hope hubs are quite popular.

Chris King are supposed to be great.

Industry 9 are getting good reviews as well.

XT hubs are good value,

 

XTR is Too pricey

Hope hubs are about the same as XTR

Chris King are overrated

Industry nine requires their spokes=costly

Weight is not an issue with XC riding and XT hubs are not heavy.

Besides, changing your hubs requires new spokes and rims too.

You can't just unbolt a hub and put another one in.

Go for a ride on your XT hubs, they're fine.

The reason for me looking to replace the hubs is that I have Hayes brakes running on my bike and with the Shimano hubs I have to use the Shimano rotors whihc constantly need to be adjusted to stop them from rubbing on the rotors.

Well thats not the hubs fault...Try taking the pads out then pumping the lever so some of the piston in the caliper is exposed (don't overdo it as the piston may pop out) and clean the piston with white spirits and then lube the pistons with a dry lube, and push the pistons back and repeat this process again.

 

other wise, use the hayes rotors and get a centre lock adapter for them...

The other thing is maybe the rotors are bent, try tweaking them with a small adjustable spanner where they rub...

 

Replacing the hubs is not the solution here...

In reply to your question:

DT 240 hubs

 

However it sounds like the problem art with your Hayes calipers or the disk are being a bit wobblie?

I have done the caliper adjustments a few times now and I have contact the support team at hayes and they say it is either my hubs or my rotors that and not compatible.
