In a separate post I explained what are the important rim dimensions and how to measure them. Here I will just make a list of data for rims that I have worked with – filling it up over time. For a more general info on the topic, see the post about bicycle wheel building basics.
The table is sorted by wheel size (bicycle wheel size standards explained), then by manufacturer, then by rim model.
Another good (and mostly reliable) source for hub dimensions is kstoerz.com – rim dimensions secton.

w.b.h. = (lateral) width between the rim spoke holes.

* Krypton rims don’t have a manufacturer-specified maximum tension they can take. However, I’ve brought a 36-spoked Krypton rim to 150+ Kgf tension of the right-hand side spokes, and 120+ Kgf tension on the left-hand side spokes – without the wheel going out of true upon stress relieving the spokes. That’s just shy of 5,000 Kgf total tension! These rims are heavy, but are among the strongest and most durable I’ve seen. With the latest price hike (late 2022), their price is still closer to $10 than it is to $20 a piece, locally, with a very consistent manufactured ERD over the past decades.
