Most of the wheels I have are warn out or mismatched and need replaced.

What's your go-to wheels for slabs?

Get you some White Rose wheels for your slabs and have the Most Pimp slabs in all the hood.

I have the Dubro super slim lite 2 3/4" on my glitter. I like that they are skinny and very light but they are too flimbsy. They fall off/roll sideways under just the 4lbs 13oz of my glit.

I have a pair of the grey dubro lite wheels on my cub but they are hard as a rock and have no give at all. So I'm looking for some that are light but have some give without being too weak to stand up in a taxi.

I like Dave Brown Lite Flite Wheels: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXB908

Very light foam wheel that are also durable. I've used them off of turf no problem, but I think they are at their best on pavement or a smooth surface.

A buddy of mine was using some White Rose wheels and axles in one of his fatties. The axles are supposed to be titanium and cost around $60 for a pair. They bent like they were solder and could easily be bent by hand. White Rose refused to make good on them.

Your not the first person I have heard say that their axles bent really easily. Can't deny their wheels are some nice bling though

So I ordered a new set of Dubro Super Slim Lite's last week and just so you know what I was talking about here is a direct comparison.

Both sets are dry, not fuel soaked, the old set has not been used on my glitter and a couple flights on my yak47. Both are 3"
