RIM --

The tire is attached to the rim and the rim is attached to the axle. Please do not deviate from this formula - it has been done this way for ages and seems to work well. For race purists, dish rims seem to be the hot ticket, but rims are available in many styles, offsets, and materials. Note that most rims are not interchangeable between models (or, in the case of 2WD models, they may not be interchangeable between the front and back), so make sure you pick up the proper rims for your ride. You will have to use CA to glue the tires to most rims (clean the area well first), but beadlock rims are available for many off road applications. Foam tires virtually always come mounted on the rim. Most rims either key directly to pins in the axles or to hexes, depending on the model.
