They're usually stronger and more aerodynamic.

Dish wheels are normally very strong, however they can be a little heavier. Also adjustments are a little more difficult as you will need to place holes into the rims or take them off for each adjustments.
But they are just as good as spoke.


Thanks

I have found any dish rims yet that aren't made of plastic instead of nylon. That means you can't recover the rims from worn out rubbers with acetone. Acetone turns plastic into toothpaste

Try boiling the wheels to get the old tires off.

i tried doing the 'boil ur tyres off' trick but it doesnt work. i did it with this like very old wheel i had and i put it in boiling water and didnt really care wat happened to it. i then took it off after about 10-15 mins and it went all un-balenced and bent it some places. so now i will never do that trick again. or maby i just did it wrong..i just dont know.

get the speedmind dish rims, they are very strong. best you can buy. stay well clear of the yokomo ones. every one I bought eventually broke out in the center. 1 failed going around a corner, didnt even hit anything.

HPI makes nylon aero dish rims. Just make sure you get the black ones. The white ones are ABS.
