I too have experienced allot of wheel cracking issues with the AKA wheels. It is a doubled edge problem, as they crack easy, but usually from hitting the susp arms when you have the wheels turned and hit something (or someone hits you)

I think the PL wheels are tougher, but I have had good luck with JConcept wheels. Losi wheels are nice also

Anyone have info on the Ofna Inch-up wheels? You get 6 in a pack and they cost the same as the others w/4... they're supposed to light aswell..

Maybe I missed this in the chart...

But when I weighed the AKA buggy and PL V2 buggy wheels; the AKA's are 5grams lighter; per wheel.

I've had trouble with the PL's distorting in the past and decided to get away from them. I've been running AKA's with zero problems, no cracks or memory distortion.

I've also run the newest Losi wheels. They seem to be good as well, though maybe a touch narrower than most on the market.

I've use

AKA -> Scuff easy, good for one set, don't like the knife edge on the inside bead. Good hex mold.
Proline V2 -> The best out of the 3. Can be reused. Shiney outside that does not go dull like AKA. Good Hex mold.
OFNA Inch Ups -> Ok, shiney outside like proline, hubs hex is not as good as proline's sometimes I'm tightening them up and they rotate on the hex. Not quite as wide as proline / aka but good enough, wider then standard wheels.

My favorite are proline's V2's. I run AKA rubber and foams.

"Proline V2 wheels are Larger in diameter and width than previous wheels to give your car more traction and stability. The V2ís are 1.3mm wider and 3mm taller than the traditional size 1:8 wheels, which transfers into a stiffer side wall for less side wall flex enhancing stability and connectivity with your 1:8 buggy. This is achieved by using the same size 1:8 tires that you use now."

The v3 wheels rub on the front on RC8B, the v2's are wider but don't rub! I like both versions.

PL V2's aren't any bigger the AKA or any other brand at the current time.
