I find the Solaris rims fine and can handle a few hits on the boards without. Cracking

Anyone tried two or all of these that can voice an opinion as to which will hold up better?

+1 on Solaris wheels. Ran them in a 24 hour race, I saw NO broken or bent rims on ANY car for the entire 24 hours. They aren't dish though.

I've never broken a sweep nylon (exp) rim. Warped, yes. Tiny crack on the lip, maybe. But never broken. There might be better out there, but you could do worse.

I haven't had a set of ABS rims from either sweep or team powers survive the entire life of the tire yet. Team Powers being pretty awful.

i get mine from topracing in Australia

i run MM32 at my track and prefer the solaris rim over the MM rim as i have found them to handle me hitting the boards every once and a while.

I find for me that the MM crack a bit when i have used them as a control rim/tyre combo

But this is my opinion and if i didnt hit the boards the MM or any rim would be perfect, but i aint a perfect driver

i just mount the MM tyres onto the rims, i also like the look of teh spoke as well

If so you will need to find a rim that isnt affected by acetone or whatever you use to remove the old rubber.

I use the Schumacher Revlites. Durable, don't crack but are hard to find.

The revlites are awesome but I can only ever seem
To get them WITH the Sorex preglued.
And by re mounting I mean buying new individual rubbers and mounting them on new rims..
