Default rim selection

ok, now i see every single time the pros race they all use dish rims.

i got bored earlier and weighed my chrome clawz and they are actually a smidgin lighter than the dish rims, and are the same price

i understand that visibility on the track is an issue, but that doesnt change the fact that everyones rims look the same!

so, why is it that everyne uses dish rims?

They create less aerodynamic turbulence than spoked rims, are usually stronger, and less distracting when you're driving.

The more rigid the wheel is, the truer they will spin, and the less rolling resistance the car will endure.
