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?

yes Speedmind is the best!
i've tried many different brands: Tamiya, Kawada, Hotbodies, Yokomo, HPI..etc they all crack after some crashes but none of my speedmind wheels have cracked, not even a tiny crack
