If you want Nylon rims then get the Schumacher revlite rims, they are better than the proline rims and fairly cheap too.

Schumachers are very popular and great cost/performance....
Their distribution means you get their products significantly cheaper than other companies...

I've also had good experience with speedmind wheels. Cheap and strong. You cna slop acetone all over them and you come out fine. Even the coloured wheels. (Acetone - melts superglue. Better than buying new rims everytime..)

The xenon wheels aren't the strongest but they're damn cheap! Well, they are where I get them from, about 1.30 (about $2.50) a set, which I think is good when normally you'd pay 5 (about $9) for a set in the UK!

The xenon rims are prone to having the center hex punch out. You are better off with speedmind or yokomo wheels. If you want a rim that wont crack, you are going to make a tradeoff in stiffness and might get wobbly bent wheels instead.

I agree with rc-zombies on Speedmind rims. They are cheap too. Even cheaper than Xenon.

www.allspeedhobbies.com has them. If it's not on the site, call them. I'm very sure they have them in stock.
