Has anyone else had this problem? both of my rear rims have shattered. they were not the stock ones. i bought new rims and tires for my jato. i can't remember the brand of rims. the tires are pro lines.there are rocks where i run my jato. it is a large flat lot(about the size a home depot would fit on) could anybody recomend a brand of rim? would i have better luck with aluminum rims?

I shattered many a rim back in the days of plastic. Then I discovered RC-Parts. (http://rc-parts.com) I bought my first set over 3 years ago and they still polish to a shine. I've been rough on them, but they can take it.
I highly recommend you get a set.

I just wish I could get a full set of aluminum bead lock rims. I can find rear rims, but front is another story, b/c the makers create them for rock crawlers, even though they can easly take the RPMs that a jato can dish at it. If anybody kowns where you can get a full set of bead locks that will work with the jato, a link would be greatly appreciated! :P
