Rim needs to have strength to resist blowing out in crashes.

Strength followed by style. Nothing like 'shaving' a wall at 20mph to discover a wobbler. Some of the wheels out there are ugly. I'd be willing to sacrifice a wear for the above characterisitics.

Spoke is nice because it allows you to make adjustments to camber, and track width without having to remove the wheel.

Hope this helps,
Mark

Are these questions really needed? You offer both dish and spoked , because thats how you satisfy everyone. Also if possible make a new updated rim design. Heck replicate some of the clean simple rim designs out that are popular with 1:1 cars. Like te37 , slipstream , circuit 10....

Make it handle , grip and longevity , durable rim , cost effective. This is what every tire company is fighting for , some not as much money. But this is what is important to any racer.

Meet those and youll find yourself buyers.

On a foam tire, a trim bead of about 1mm around the rim where the foam is clued to help prevent chunking......

a unique color to set you apart

I think the GRP tires/rims were about the best out there. If you could meet their standards, you would have a winner.

tHE NEW jACO WITH a SERPENT WHEEL will be the best combo = "strong rim good rubber " and keep the list price below $10.00 /pair is strongly recommended

I have to second that the SERPENT new style touring rims are the best style/durability so far....a dish type style with minimal slot (kinda like spoke) for camber tunning....best things for both world.

Then good quality control of the foams....avoid foam split in the middle after 1 tank of fuel used (happened before in one period of time on 1 very popular brand of foam tires)

Last...price...a full set front and rear below $25 is totally accpetable (I wish $20 for a set but if someone or some LHS need to make money, $5 more is very reasonalbe) 1/8th $35 for 1 set are good price too...(currently there is a brand sell for $30 for a set)

Something like what Ennetti has on their tires that keeps them from chunking and good strong but forgiving rim. I like the Speedminds but there rims flex to much and you get woble.

The catch 22 in ensuring strength is not to add too much weight, you still need a light tire to keep up those rpms.

most of the racers I know true the tire down to at least a 62mm or even 61mm. How about saving the rubber for more tires, and save a little on price too.
