Go with the Xenon rims.. They are light and rigid but I guess they should have some more flex to gain more side bite.

I've run 2 sets of the Xenon rims and cracked 3 rims in each set... they broke in hits that weren't very hard either (didn't even break the car)... I've rarely broken a yok rim, but the best I've ver run are the Speedmind impact masters (and they come in all kinds of nifty colors)

Xenon rims are cheap, but I have cracked several of them. Orion rims are on sale at Stormer Hobbies, $1.49 set of 4. So far I have had good luck with them.

Awesome...I'll give them a call

Would you happen to know if they're ABS or nylon? In other words, can you boil them to remove the tires, or will they warp?
