Nitro House sells sets of wheels for like $16.
http://www.nitrohouse.com/catalog/in...p?cPath=37_141

Maybe ask around at the track though, I've gotten good deals before on used tires and wheels that are in pretty good condition. Couple weeks ago I got two sets, 8 wheels and 8 tires, all sealed and with foam, in pretty good condition, for only $15.

Yeah thats your best bet because if you go on ebay or something and get some of them NO NAME tires that look very similar to brand name THEY ARE NOT. Your buggy will look like a drift car on the dirt because the rubber they are made of is closer to plastic.

DO NOT buy the "qualifier's" they are Poor quality at best...all the lugs were ripped off in a matter of 15-20 min of running and not to mention the foams feel like Junk....Way too soft.

I did alot of racing the end of last year with a set of the sportworks bump ups. I agree the foams are soft, but the tires way outlasted and outperformed my expectations for club racing. I'll most likely buy another set or two for next summer. I'm not a tire whore so cheap is good, and cheap and long lasting is even better. I thought amain got rid of them all, but I see they are listed under dynamite now. Never knew Homer had em. Have to order a set from him.
