Yes, same happen with me with Sorex dish rims. Now I prefer Yokomo Mesh Wheel because there's a tires quantity limit for every race.

Did the rims crack cause of a crash or just after a clean heat it crack.

Usually you would need a crash at the right place to crack a rim.

actually i been reading up and people say the speedmind are good... come to think about it, i think the rims where Eagle......

ben. i hit the baords a few time, however, everyone does, i have some tamiya rims from my mini and they dont crack after i hit. oh and all 4 were cracked, the front more so than the rears, but even the rears were cracking...

Speedmind are great........
I also like the Xenon Rim also, they hold up very well and Steve over at Speedtech sells them in bulk....Now if they would only put them out in black I would be happy...

What you need to do is buy only nylon rims! not the plastic ones that crack and break, yokomo, pro line, etc.

I find the hub on the Speedmind wheels are too shallow and I am affraid that I might stripped it if I hit the barrier. Did it happen so anyone?

Yokomo makes a Dish Nylon wheel, ABS wheel and an ABS Precision Wheel in white and yellow. I think the regular ABS wheel is the most durable. Nylon wheels can bend and stay that way.

I've run the black Speedmind rims for a couple of years now and have not had any problems with them breaking & believe me, I've hit some stuff very hard during that time.
