I only use proline rims too. I'll never use another sorex rim....for some god awful reason, they kept backing out the wheels nuts and while I was leading the A-main, 2 wheels fell off.....

In reading through the posts on this topic, it would be helpful if you guys could put what you think is cold weather, hot weather, etc.

For Instance, my take on temps is this (this is obviously outside racing):


Cold Weather --> outside temp < 45 degrees
cool weather --> outside temp < 70 degrees
warm weather --> outside temp < 90 degrees
hot weather --> outside temp > 90 degrees

RodneyB- sounds like you hit the nail on the head with those tempertures. I agree. Although I would say the cold weather would be equilavant to <40*. Just Kidding that sounds good.

haha, I said the opposite.

I'll never buy another Proline rim, b/c they warp themselves!
I am currently using the Sorex rims, and having good luck with them so far.

I've been using the sorex and haven't had any problems with them. Now I have seen the whole hex hub break out of the sorex dish but they seem to hold up for me. I agree with you Jack_L, the pro-lines seem a little soft where they will warp which will create runout. Not only that they don't make a 24mm dish wheel. I came across Speedtech's 24mm(0 offset) dish rims on their site so I'll be trying them out soon. They're $5.49 for a 4pack.

Modena AL-yeah the softer inserts can lead to greater wear but i think a lot of that has to do with driving and setup. If both are good it is much less wear than if you are abusing the tires.

Hey Stika525- I haven't tried them but I heard that they were heavy as hell. Don't take my word for it, this is just what I heard from rcracing.com. They don't require inserts.

I was thinking that also. But I also considered that insert is also removed from the equation so the weight might not be that much of an issue. whatcha think?

Ummm... I don't know the surface of the snowbirds, but for the time being, my choose should be about these two tyres/inserts for winter season on asphalt:

ProLine 1095H13 w/ Yok ZR037-S.
ProLine 1095H13 w/ Stock blue foam.

I'm gonna test some Yokomo 'M' compound with soft inserts.

So what?

During the last year I've used 24mm velocity rims (dishes) for my rears and 24mm Gumby wheels.

Surface will be Ozite carpet. If I'm not mistaken, I heard it'll be new. Pit and Sorex 20r and 24r compounds seem to be the hot ticket so far. I have tried the Sorex 24r front and 20r rear on asphalt and it worked great. A friend and I were dog fighting on the track with this combo and it made for some good passes. Used Echo red inserts in both.

I've been shown that they're good for beating around the streets but WAY too heavy for serious racing... good way of overheating your motor too i guess...

Corse-R- Thanks for the correction on the pro-line 24mm dish wheel. I could of sworn they only made the dish wheel in a 26mm inch-up. Glad to see your having good luck with them! What kinda of surface do you run/race the H13's w/blue foams on?

Stika - I'm not a rubber tyre expert, but some guys from my (carpet) club went to a couple of outdoor meetings with the solid tyres, and the tyres came back wrecked - overheating I think was the problem, and they were good for nothing afterwards.

Question - I run narrow yellow schumacher minipins, cos I run indoors. Does anyone know of...

1. moulded inserts for 21mm tyres?

2. Nice stiff 21mm wheels without an offset?

thanks
