Default heavy/weighty 1.9 wheels

so,what's the heaviest 1.9 wheel out on the market?

from a wheel weight standpoint (heavier the better) is it best to go with a steel wheel like rc4wd or plastic with the steel rings?

i know lots of guys run lead weight or bbs...i don't like the bb idea,but may go for the lead weight around a plastic wheel setup.

i currently run rc4wd steel wagon wheels,but they are a pain to mount tires on...they drive me nuts and i hate them,until the are complete anyways,lol

I really like Moto Worx Racing wheels. They are CNC'd billet Alu. They are pretty heavy and he leaves a nice flat surface to add weight to...if you want.

nice but pricey...they look like they would be much easier to mount tires to

i wish they had the LE 8 spoke 2.2 in a 1.9

how do these mount? do they come with the hub-pin style and hex?

any other suggestions?

Mayhem Engineering Wheels have a bit of heft to them.

I seem to think the wheel / rings and hubs were ~3oz each for the Monsters:

I use the Axial 8 hole bead locks...
along with their wheel weight retainer system, fully loaded.
(^ not cheap compared to 1:1 stick on (tape) wheel weights.)
But I do like their ease of use/reuse capability.

With Axial's wheel weight ring/retainer loaded to full weight capacity...
the individual tire/wheel weight comes to 8.48 oz. (240.3 grams) ea.

Generally my weighted wheels are used when slo mo rock crawling.
But I'll occasionally swap to unweighted tires/wheels when I want a faster pace, a more brisk run and/or a longer battery run time.

Less tire/wheel weight means less battery drain

IMO...
the tire/wheel weights offer a more to scale observation/behavior in the suspension's ride quality.
The tire's sidewalls bulge and flex more when weighted.
This sidewall behavior replicates tires that are aired down low.

"unsprung" weight is helpful... for keeping the rubber side down...
(^ weight below the supporting springs)
adding weight to the axle's housing helps even more ( * beef tubes )

"sprung" weight, on the other hand, is most every crawler's enemy.
and most attempt to minimize that when possible.

( ^ chassis weight supported by the springs )

I used the stick on wheel weights for real tires, and I wrapped the inside of the wheel with weights.
Each tire is almost 1lb each, and it works great, I haven't had the problem of tolling it all the time.
