Default Tuff nitro sedan wheels

Hey guys, I recently started racing nitro sedan and notice dish wheels are not real popular. My only issue is whenever I tap the board they snap. Last night I broke two brand new front black carbon hot racing wheels.
I really enjoy nitro sedan, but is there a better/tuffer onroad wheel? So far hot racing is not an option....lol...

carbons break easier than the white plastic , try Matrix wheels they are pretty durable . I had the same issue you had with Hot Racing Wheels , broke first corner on track after taping board....

Awesome... Thanks, I'll put in an order for them today and report back... I've never broke a wheel on my electric sedan, so it was a shocker the first time I taped the board and snapped a wheel.

I used SRC carbons since my first day racing till this season. By far the strongest wheel out there. Now I'm running hot race, the nylons (white) are stronger, but still do break but not nearly as much as the carbons. Contacts are also really strong.

I just ordered a couple sets of matrix wheels/tires from Desoto recing... I'll keep my fingers crossed on how they hold up on Fridays onroad race....
Thanks for the advise.....
The hot racing carbons do look good though. ...

I have run alotta dif wheels for nitro touring. I like the hot race nylons, but the ennetti is really good with src coming in 3rd. matrix also a good choice but i think the small lip makes them more likely to chunk. i still tap walls so safe is better than sorry! Nylon hot race A+

Results are in.... matrix carbon wheels are AWESOME!..... our track is all 4x4 sticks and metal tube, so it's hard on wheels. The matrix wheels lasted through a brutal night with no issues.
The right wheel/tire is matrix and the left is hot racing.
