I'm going to play mind reader here and guess that you might think that Aerohead rims have valve holes big enough for Schraeder valves. The answer is no, they only fit Presta valves.

I drill out the inner wall valve hole of all my rims to 5/16" (8mm) and chamfer it, to better fit Stan's tubeless valve stems, or strips. IIRC, the Velocity valve stem holes are close to 1/4" (6.4mm).

Here's what he probably wanted to know:
The inner wall spoke hole size is important if you want to use the Velocity Veloplugs. The red ones are for 8mm holes (all Velocity rims, AFAIK), and the yellow ones for 8.5-9.3mm holes. I've used the red ones in Deep V rims, before I started running tubeless.

And he said SPOKE HOLE! Keep repeating: "read for content!"
