Default Which Tires and Rims are the best?

I'm looking to get some better rims and tires, mainly rims. Seems like most rims I've tried take a set after a hit or two. I've tried Proline, HPI, Tamiya, Take-offs, and I'm now trying out some rims from Echo.

Really what I'm looking for is a little more life out my wheels and something that fits a little better on my Pro4.

I like the preglued cs27's. They last a long time. As far as buying rims I really like the black rims that came with the Schumacher Axis 2 kit. Very tuff and durable.

People really like Speedmind over here - good reputation for being durable and tough.

It's all a toss up. I like the Tamiya rims, they fit the tire nicely and haves a contact that meets the tire with no gap. The wheel flexes enough to absorb impacts without breaking. However, if you hit something hard enough, something will give.
