Default yellow or white wheels

What do you use?

I use yellow, but I'm thinking of switching.

Well what colors is your body? If yellow fits your paint scheme go for yellow because they dont look as dirty when running and clean up better, but if not go for good ole' white!

I'd run yellow exclusively accept for the fact that AKA has not yet released any pre-mounted truggy tires on their yellow rims. Their pre-mounts rock, so either I bite the bullet and glue them myself or just settle for white rims. It's a win-win either way!

I like yellow. They look better after they get a little used and help visibility at races that go late into the day/dusk.

I use both and also yellow and white wings..I have several lids and I like everything to color co-ordinate, makes the buggy look better as its crashing into the walls, hay bails, water tower, pit lane, marshalls, etc, etc

with my scheme, my RC8T looks good with white wheels and a yellow wing. I could run Yellow wheels and it would look bad, but i've always run white wheels on all of my RCs, except my oval pan cars, they get black wheels cuz i run TM foams

I dye my wings and wheels to match my color scheme using RIT dye. Works great.

White rims here It just goes with my paint scheme.



Heres the 1st body>>



Yellow rims would just not look as good. I think its a personal preference type of thing.

Yellow for me. Like others have said, because it fits my scheme. Dane I think your body would look better with yellow. It does have yellow in it doesn't it?

Definitely yellow. Better contrast on the track.

I have to agree
It's not how good you are but how good you look doing it
