KH 47mm ou 55mm : considering that KH 55mm rim is not available in Europe, Mad 4 One has but without eyelet and I don't know their rim quality

Tyre :
Duro Crux 3.25" from KH ?
Havok 3" : I read that it's not good for camber
Other suggestions ?

Cranks :
is KH Spirit 137 enought or 150mm better with a 180 disc brake ?
Looks you are considering a custom wheel. In this case my recommendation is that you should consider going for a 32h Hub. Then you can go into the whole world of Mtb rims. Much more choice and years of experiance in DH and FR. I think most of the offered Muni rims are still overkill in terms of width and specially in weight. For a good wheel you need a of course a good rim, however another major factor is a propper build of the wheel, eg. using butted spokes with propper tension.

For the tire: Personally I can recommend the Nobby Nic (with Apex). In our group we ride this tire in 2,8 and 3,0 (no real differecne when changing munis). Both sizes work really well. Good offroad grip and not sensitive to chamber. I ride the 2,8 version with a 30mm (inner width) Mtb rim.
