Now we know how you drive. I like the Sorex wheels as they are very rigid and light but yes the center hex area will break out if you hit them very hard. Out of two years racing with sorex wheels I think I've only ruined one. I like the new yokomo wheels also.

My first choice has been Tamiya dish rims (narrow)
They're pretty stiff, spin true, and they're cheap. I'm switching over to yellow rims now, I used to run blues but they don't fit in with the paint so well now

I've got some new Yoke yellow dishes which are very stiff and should be good.

I primarily use Tamiya's dish wheels. No problems with them! I sometimes use Ofna's lexan dish wheels. They're very stiff and cheap. But they seem to be bigger in diameter.

hot bodies rims are crap. i broke 2 and the other 2 are on their way as well. the rims are weak overall.

i did crash but the ones that are broke are the rears!!! i wonder why the rear ones broke.

the dish rims, in the center it has 3 holes, probably makes the weak spot, and the back supporting spokes are breaking along the lines.. the spokes are too thin..

POS rims.. waste of good money and rubber..those are sorex rubber and hpi inserts.. and still a lot more left! i bought these last week!

Thumbs up

Orion wheels I have taken some pretty hard hits with them and they still run true and no cracks.

Default Lightweight rims..

What are the most lightweight rims?I know that the Pro-line΄s
(Gumby/Wabash) are very lightweight, but they seem to be just a little to soft for some applications. Any other suggestions...

Thanks,
ingo

I used to use the Hot Bodies ones... untill I had the same dang problem....

But now I use the Super True TECH Racing ones..the are much lighter and stronger than the Yokomo super trues..

I would love to get myself a set of those Tech New Rims. They are very light according to the advertisement. It can reduce weight too.
