Lem2, i totaly agree with you on those tamiya rims, the 5 spoke are hard as a rock and i like the dull black finish of them.

Does anyone use the old 5 or 6 (cant remember how many) Yokomo rims? They were only like 3.50 at my shop.

I have been running the Team Orion Hard Dish Wheels with no problems. Also have had good luck with HPI 5 star spoke wheels.

Randman, Tamiya makes 24mm Medium Narrow Dish wheels that work very well. That's all I ever use. I think Redbull uses either the white or yellow ones. I prefer these over other the Yoke wheels.

Here's the item description from Rainbow10
0013400153475,TAMIYA,,550yen,53475 Medium Narrow White Dish Wheels(offset0)

That's for a pack of 4, so it ends up being like $4.67 a set. You can always purchase them at HP, Gyro, and Ultimate for like $6-7 a set and if they don't have it, you can purchase them from Tamiya for $7. I hope this helps.

i personally don't like them. they always get minor cracks when you do slight crashes and driving. like i said..i prefer the 24mm with alota spokes and +2 offset

haha i try!...but see the +2 offset are nice cuz they make my car wider...and they also look nicer! and with the same crash..these hold up better than the tamiya dishes! i think these give a bit more...

Sorex dish wheel is completely a f____ing joke. I've never had ones without going bent after a couple of runs.
