Default Strong rims

I'm sick of chips/cracks, yeah, I crash a bit, but what are the strongest rims out there?

Of what I've tried, JACO is a clear winner.

How are the JACO Rubberz?

Both the foam and rubber rims are top notch, nothing to worry about.

speedmind aero dish rims are very strong , never broken one ever.
Also most other design speed mind rims have never chiped or cracked for me.


the worst rims i have ever had are hot bodies white dish 24mm
one crash in silver can class and 2 where gone totally.

The speedmind won't break. They do get wobbelly (out of round) though if you hit them enough.

if you bend your rims you can bring them back by placing them in hot water



What you really need is a more flexible rim and the softer proline is the best for that they have two types just give them a squeeze
