I just personally do not like anything but dish wheels for any RC car. I never have liked the goofy designs that have been around. And I do not like the gumby style that Proline had years ago. As consumer I am letting Jaco know there are racers that like dish wheels. I do know that I can use another tire that sells a dish wheel. And I will use them, my choice. But like I said I am voicing to Jaco, I would like dish wheels.

Right on, dodgeguy. Constructive criticism is never a bad thing. Maybe once you see these wheels up close and personal, your mind will change. But if not, to each their own.

Agree 100% I'd guess folks with a dish wheel preference are in the minority.

What diameter are they trued to?

Props to dodgeguy for voicing his opinion politely. The Intertubes could use more of that.

The new wheel is in the "Prizm" family. They have the same cutting edge look to them.

As for "race size" we have to cater to both club and pro, so with that said it will be in the 58-60 mm range out of the box ( Jack is not 100% decided as to what the final size will be yet) but we are leaning to 60mm to give every user a good chunk of rubber to be able to race on at both club and national level.

I won't give wheel spec's yet but be assured that you will be able to get more runs then any other current "big wheel" on the market.

For anyone that does not know, Josh Cyrul and Jack designed the Prizm wheel line with performance, style and durability in mind.

We were going to true them to 58mm (what is in the picture), but that looks like it will be too low. I think we will go around 60mm. Any opinions?

dodgeguy- You are certainly entitled to your opinion. I won't begrudge you for that. Perhaps the lower price can persuade you to sacrifice style for economy.

I am going to try to get a better picture for everyone to see. If you have seen the 1/12 wheel in person you will know what I mean. By the way, the whole Prism line was designed by Josh Cyrul- 1/12, 1/8, and 1/10.

Id say 60mm is good, especially since the rim is larger in daimeter. Our carpet out here is relatively low grip (we think it's the lack of humidity) and the taller tires work a little better when the track is green.

As a regular club racer, I would like them at 60mm so I can get some practice run out of them.

Maybe you could offer both? 60 and 58?

I prefer 60mm starting size.

I heard Ray has decided to race Gas full time due to his apparent natural ability. Is this true???

Those rims look GREAT! I can't wait to try them.

Thanks for the clarification on the compounds. It'll be nice to try something else other than DP/DP-O

My vote is for 60mm trued tires.

Most of the guys I know will true down to 60mm at most for club racing. The racers who want to run 58mm or smaller foams most likely have their own truer and won't mind cutting down their tires to the desired size.

I think you'll make the most people happy with 60mm
