I have some Jaco wheels I mount my tires on, and I really like the Sweep Pink inserts
for asphalt , and the Sweep Ultra Light weight insert
for carpet [28 or 24].
There could be better inserts than my choices even, but they work for me.
I'll go with Harry on this one and add that I prefer the Sorex medium B or Hara Medium inserts for carpet for sorex tires. For the sweeps pink inserts, there are standards and EXPs. The EXPs are a little thicker and wider, making a little less air gap than standards.
For wheels, I go with something nylon over ABS plastic. The Schumacher revlites are super fragile, maybe even as fragile as Muchmore rims. For ABS rims, I go with the Team Associated branded Yokomo rims (same product, only cheaper). For nylon, salvaged Jaco spoked rims or sweep EXP standard rims are amazingly durable.
