Inconsistent IMO. Got some that worked great and also got some that were larger than 17mm so the wheel was too big for the hub. All i use now is pro-line.

My friend had bad luck with the hexes stripping out, he said that the plastic was too soft.

free tires are great!!!!!!!!! i just bought a huge tire lot, 9 sets of buggy tires mounted in very good condition for $45 shipped, so i ended up with all kinds of wheels, but for that price im not gonna complain...

I like Werks wheels. The hub section has a thick section around the wheel nut, very well reinforced. They don't strip the hexes like the OFNA ones I've seen. They also don't crack as easily as the OFNA ones. I've never run the Panther ones. I also like the Proline wheels, same comments as the Werks, but I believe the Werks ones are lighter.

I'm looking forward to trying out a set or two but the link to order some doesn't work for me for some reason? I did send you an email a couple days ago, I was wondering if you got it?
