Xceed wheels are way too fragile...
Matrix seems to be a very good bang for the buck.

Looove those Matrix tires in charcoal Capricorn rims. LOL

i broke 2 sets of xceed rims in 2 runs..

1st, accidently clipped a corner, broke the spokes.. CA glued them down, went ok for a few laps and then rim went flying off..

So i installed a new set,

2nd, only 2 laps in, went to overtake another guy on the track.. broke and twisted all the spokes.. dont see this rim lasting another lap.

They are so f'ing weak!... didnt even crash hard

now i got 4 rears doing nothing.. wish i had a tyre truer, so i can just buy fronts and tru them to match the rear and use them cause they are only a few laps old..

and the rear ones hold up fine, only the front are weak.

Just want to make a remark here.
If you don't even have a tyre truer, it seems to me that you are not really long in this hobby.
Then I really don't understand why the hell you bought light weight rims!...
These break easily.... get yourself regular weight rims, but don't blame Xceed for making f' king weak ones.....

You can't beat BSR tires. Tough rims, great rubber and great prices.

iv been in the hobby for over 5yrs... but in the off-road scene.

Iv recently started to get into on-road, and im not ready to fork out 3-400$$ for a truer.. everyone has to begin somewhere.

I use xceed and have used many other brands! All tires are weak if you hit something But maybe just use regular weight no doubt lightweights are more fragile but they are better in grip right now all i use are Xceed LW and havent broke a pair yet

Just keep it off the boards...

I am very interested in this also, I have been using Jaco's up till last season. The last two races I ran Kawahara tires and they were awesome but the place locally that sold them cant get them anylonger, so I have been looking at the Twister tires also.
