I have always used Bart Chrome. I get them in about the 50-55 dollar range. I also powdercoat them myself with a translucent blue or purple, it looks awesome.

Real wheels are a goood tough wheel while they are not the cheapest as far as price goes I believe they are the best buy.In racing parts you get what you pay for most times than not.

I have also seen the barts come off. I use the basset wheels and have never had one come off i have had em stay on even with a flat from puncture.The price i think is like $60 a wheel but i never worry about them!!

I like bassets the best. They are a little more expensive but the quality is the best. I have bent these up so bad the taken a torch and straightened them back out. They work great! I'm working on a deal for the practice day, sould be able to save you guys a few bucks if anyone one is interested? Just need to know how many and what size. can get aero's, real's, or bassets. email me and I'll get back with you. ltr spde aka

I've run Bassets and Aeros. Never had a problem with either wheels but I favor the Aeros for holding their finish better and they are softer and save suspension parts like spindles etc. A wheel change at the race track is much easier task then a major parts change. Both are good wheels and I still run Bassets on asphalt and heavier stock cars.
