Rim for mountain bike for disk brakes

I have a 26 inch MTB.

I am thinking of converting the rear to disk brakes.

What kind of rim would I need?

Thanks.

I was riding my MTB when the rear brakes locked up.

While investigating, the tire blew up.

It sounded like a gunshot. Tires were at 50 p.s.i.

I am frequently having to adjust my brakes because of brake pad wear.

I do not have to do major braking.

Are there other brake pads that wear longer that do not cost big bucks?

Thanks,

Use of brakes

Sheldon is an intelligent man, however...

I use both and have never had a "over the handlebar situation."
