older recent TRC with GRP rubber were mounted on yellow nylon rims, i hear references to new TRC tires (they are now using Jaco rubber along with 2 stage tech) so i don't know if the rim material stayed the same.
i have found the Parmas are very durable although not a TRC type nylon.
CRC's dish wheels are plastic but very tough, not sure on the Pro-Rollers
on the Jacos, how old are the wheels or when did you get them. the older ones i run would crack, chip, etc. very easily. the 2-stage Jacos i have on my car now are the exception though, not a scratch after 8 races on one set. Jack did a slight plastic formula change along with a redesign/reinforcement of his 12 wheels. he first put these out in the 2-stage tire line, i don't know if they have fully been run into his other straight compound 12th tire line. he has a thread on this forum.
sells orange rims 12th tires, not sure what they are made of.
TM Racing makes some tuff wheel 12th tires, i saw a set on a sponsored drivers car.
BSR tires are dished (like CRC) but with perimeter vents, unsure of the material, never tried them. www.lefthander-rc.com
