Default Best 1/8 Buggy Wheel

So, what do you guys think is the best 1/8 buggy wheel?

Proline V2? V3?

AKA EVo with or without the sitffener?

Other?

I will be using them on JC and Proline tires, possibly AKA.

Thanks

What tires are best!!!!!

After you get 1000 different answeres..............

I personally feel after many different sets of tires and wheels AKA I-Beams Soft seem to be universal IMO.

AKA EVO - overall best wheels you can buy out there
VP-PRO - best price/performance

I have been using only aka rims since I started racing buggy. I feel the are the truest and give solid performance. Starting to use the evo rims but with out the insert due to our bumpy track.

Round ones that can give you the most traction. See what the fast guys at your track are running and buy those.
