Who's buggy rims do you like the best? I seem to like losi's, they seem to be
strong,light and flexable. The only thing I don't like about them are the two
air holes.(I shoe-goo them close)
I did notice that the lighter tire-foam combos seems to ballon alot less.

Panther Gator with Losi rims seems to work in most conditions for me.
What buggy wheel combo do you like?


Panther Komodo 2 soft/w Losi rim= 97g
Panther Raptor soft/w Losi rim=95g
JConcept Hit Man blue/w Losi rim=115g
(all weights are made with new tires)
i prefer the losi and aka over anything....ive NEVER had one crack bend tweek or fail in any way shape or form....ive seen Some Ofna Dish's SMASH the center hex out before....ive seen JC's Crack at the spoke(pretty common)

I have yet to get my hands on a set of new Panter (bigs) but am lookin at picking them up as a sponsorship in the next little while.....Never tried Ae or Panther V2's so i cant comment.

Thx for the extra weight's but i got both set's of those sitting downstairs waiting for rims...but thx tho.

Im looking to have a proper PDF file that will show everything i got in stock right now and or what i already jotted down for weights.....buddy Budz is gonna help out.

Been waiting for the big Panther rims for some time now. He said they are going to be reinforced at the hub area so they wont stip out any more.

Should be pretty good rim esp for people that like colored wheels & the reinforcement should fix peoples complaint.Only had it happen twice in meybe 15 sets but when they strip its kind of an ordeal,happens right before the main or when you have broken foam.

Old thread but i was putting some truggy wheels on a scale and was amazed at the difference:

-VTEC rim, AKA insert, VTEC Harakiri tire (soft): 240.0 grams
-JConcepts Mono rim, AKA insert, VTEC Kamikaze tire (soft): 225.9 grams
-JConcepts Rulux Halfups, AKA insert, JConcepts crosshairs tire (soft): 218 grams
-AKA premount cityblock (supersoft): 228.1 grams
-AKA premount cityblock (medium): 227,8 grams

JConcepts moulded yellow foam: 43.1 grams

Between the heaviest and lightest there's a 22 gram difference per wheel, thats 88 grams per 4 wheels...
