We cut the tires to fit each rim separately. The inside diameter of the donuts on the smaller rims is slightly smaller than the ID of the donuts on the larger rims.

The same color? No. The same durometer reading? Yes. This is why we use a color system. A black front and a purple rear are both 40 durometer, but are very different. A purple front and purple rear are the same.

These rims are amazing. They really do look way better in person. They are very lightweight, and perform very very well. Rick Monahan and I ran the 26mm wraps all weekend long getting our cars dialed in to the track, then threw on the new Prism wheel and each picked up a tenth immediately, and after a few small tweaks we were easily 3 tenths faster than we had gone all weekend. I know my car felt more planted and more responsive entering and exiting the turns. Cornerspeed improved quite noticeably. I think the lighter wheels are going to be a huge advantage in stock due to having less rotating mass, and less unsprung weight.

As far as durability goes, I didn't hit too much with them on my car but I didn't have any problems at all with the rims.

I want to thank Jack for allowing Ray and Rick to come up and practice at my home track with me, and giving us all the opportunity to test out a great new product. Also thanks to Rick and Ray for the help and entertainment all weekend long!
So what tire combination did you find to work best? DBL Pinks all around as usual? Or maybe DBL Pink rear and Lilac fronts?

We only had a few wheels so we just did double pinks all the way around.

I saw plenty of broken dish wheels at the Paved Nats last year and had one myself after looking over my car. I bet the spoked styles can be just as strong as a solid dish.

I like them! It's about time someone came out with bigger rims, I like the low-pro look a lot, especially on racecars because it says "performance."

The material we are using for these wheels is VERY strong. We use the same plastic on our 1/8 wheel and it is incredibly durable. An added benefit is that it is very light too. It's more expensive, but we have learned our lesson on wheels that break easily. Nothing is worth that headache.

It looks like we will be going into production on these next week. I would imagine we will start shipping the first week in September.

If you're looking to get some of the new wheels/tires, they will be available THIS WEEKEND (Sept 8) at The Cleveland Steamer at The Gate in Cleveland, OH.

AB Charles Hobby Shop will be bringing a large supply to sell. If you want them early, get to the Gate. While you're there, take part in what will be one of the most fun races of the year.

For more information on the race, click on the link:

Glad to see Magentas are coming back. Are the Magentas more rubber or foam content? Way back when the XXX-S was the car to have, I always liked running TRC Magentas (good balance of rubber and foam) on the rear. The car was planted although it didn't feel planted and just seem to go through the turns faster.
