Default ALLOY WHEELS

Are alloy wheels any good for 1/10th on road touring car?

Just a thought that at least they can be re-used whentyres wear out?

Stick with plastic if you are racing. If you get in a crash with the aluminum and bend the wheel, then you lost about $50USD for that set. Just use it for show.

no, all you need to do is rough the glue area up with a dremel, all you need to do, and then get in there with finger nail polish remover when ur chage tires, and just use them for showing off in front of ur house
