    Best 2.8 Chrome wheels?

    Just wondering what you guys would recommend for 2.8 chrome wheels?
    Seem like I have had some flake off a little to easy in the past.
    Any one to stay away from?
    I know Pro-line has some.
    Thoughts?

    Never seen a set of chrome wheels on a 'go-fast' RC without chipping. Aside from the abuse of being hit by rocks and such, the wheels flex, and the chrome usually doesn't.

    I dont know it this would or would not work. But what about a metallic silver spray paint as touch-up?

    Maybe...
    I am in the middle of doing a build using silver parts, IE: shock caps, casters, ect. So chrome wheel would have been a good fit.
    Thanks for confirming guys.

    In a way to switch things up a bit maybe black rims would be cool? Experiment a little. See what fits best.

    I like the black look. But I have done many black wheels. Trying to do something different. I think rit dye has a pearl grey color.
    Might get some white wheels and dye them. Thanks for the feedback.
