Default What size wheel are you guys using

quick poll what wheels are you buggy boys using these days since we have had nearly a year now with all the new options what is the popular or quickest wheel to use. What advantages do they bring cheers.

normal size wheel
v2 size wheel
or the ridiculous v3 wheel
or round ones (for the guy who cant help himself )

any reasons for this, is it just how they fit the tyre? or is the bigger size actually giving you an advantage over small wheels ??

AKA-Ideally 2nd V2's I have tried a set of V3 just to try and tbh seemed a little more stable over rougher ground.. but seemed to loose a little response.. But I prefer AKA and AKA rubber then Proline

i prefer the losi rims. the bead doesn't roll back over the tire so the side wall can flex alittle more. i was finding that the sidewalls were chopping out on rough tracks because they were cutting on the rolled back edge. the losis dont have it and i haven't damaged a tire since
the new V2 and AKA wheels are the same aswell. i just use the losis because i have them

i found that most of the smaller size wheels had the rolled over bead
