These are great rims. They might not be the prettiest, but as a racer who uses a lot of tires, these rims can't be any better value for your money. These rims are tough and they and withstand high heat, therefore can be recycled more easily. I used to like the black ones, as they match the car better, but now, I prefer white as you can write what tyres you have on them. And once your tyre runs bold, you will know what to replace. Get some and you will know what I mean. Can be used with almost any tyres. They are larger than the cross rims, so it will fit Tamiya slicks tyres better.
