If only these came in white.

Snowy.
If these are made with the same plastic as the F1 rims I would hold off on a track with hard boards. The F1 rims broke and bent rather easy from what people have said. You can always paint them if you want them in white.

For the record these are made at a different factory then the F1 wheels. These wheels actually may be a couple grams heavier then say an HPI wheel which reflects the extra back ribbing for reinforcement (see photo). As noted in the specs;

Heavy duty GT style 1/10 sedan wheels. Special US spec formulation for Exotek contains 100% nylon with no fibers for just right rim flex and increased traction on asphalt or carpet.
The 10 spoke wheel pattern maintains durability for high impact indoor racing.


Regarding the F1 Wheels- the first batch is when a few racers reported some breakage even though our testing didn't result in any weaknesses. As result the follow up batches was a softer nylon. Once we went to the softer nylon the reports of problems to us stopped. The F1 wheels are selling very well and we are on our 4th production run so they are going strong

I am asking this honestly, do you reallly think that 2mm in rim difference is going to make that much of a difference? That's less than 1/12th of a inch.

USGT is 90% looks, and most racers run 200mm bodies...zero offset looks horrible, and spacers look much worse...start with at least a 3 mm offset, and Im sure 6's will follow...

But don't stick your neck out for one racer, see if its possible to pull a 3mm offset, and see if it sales

Also might be a better idea to start with a popular color like white that can be easily dyed black or any other color.
