Default Sorex tires/wheel combo

We use sorex as spec tires, and wanted to find out if they will fit on the new EXP rims from Sweep without issues. I tried different types of rims, but the material used and the deep hex design is the best on the exp rims. I've come across some rims that are just slightly too small for the sorex and didn't have a snug fit. Wondered if anyone knows. Thanks.

Thanks, but I used the sorex dishes and they crack on the lips. It did feel good until then. There is a compromise between rigidity and longevity.

I will be trying this soon myself. I agree that the EXP rim seems to be the best rim on the market now. Not too soft, nice and true and won't crack like others. I have no doubt that the Sorex rims are the worst wheels ever made! Their tyres can be hard to beat on some tracks.

Default So what rims work best?

after reading your posts, I wondered if you found the best rim to use with the sorex. I have a set on hpi rims and they are great runners on my TC4. Just picked up a set of sorex and wondered if other rims were better.

The Jaco rim is a perfect fit on Sorex rims as well. Speedworld has them in black if you want a different color. 916-783-8864 Ask for Billy

Speedminds are pretty good, cheap too. They're nylon and don't crack like ABS.
