hey monty, our wheels are made out of DuPont™ nylon, it cost more to produce but can't get any tougher than that, you will see.

good luck.

I have tried many kind of wheels for my 808 car.
Let say...Pro*ine wheel. Its only good around in the beginning of race time. Its shorter lifetime than Sweep. Since we race on the hot weather track about 36-40 Deg C.
You can compare the construction inside the wheel .
If we use AkA wheel include tires, when we scrut on FEMCA event some Xray 808 car, can't pass the scrut .

I think Sweep wheels very nice finishing and i haven't got any crack even you drive the car crazily.
But don't hit the wall....

Ok, so I'm new and I probably should go with whatever everybody else is using but I love to be different and have something new. So I'm getting something from Sweep. I'm racing on a red clay track, so it's pretty firm but never seems to get really really hard. Tell me what else you need to know to help me pick out a set. The Exagons look cool but the Battle Stars and Dirt Effects seem more like what's on the market now.

Thanks
Stephen
