Default 2.2 Aluminum Wheels

I'm looking to get some new aluminum wheels, or perhaps Delrin Wheels with an aluminum hub and beadlock rings. What is everyone using these days, and what would you recommend? My budget is $100 for 4. Thanks.

Checkout SSD. Sweet wheels. These are my SSD 2.2 Rock Racer wheels. They have other styles of course.

You're right, they do have some sweet Wheels. Good price too. I noticed that all of the beadlock Rings are Delrin. Have you had any problems or issues with that?

I haven't had a chance to run these yet, but I'm not worried about it. I haven't read about any issues with SSD Wheels. They do offer some aluminum outer rings.

Example of aluminum outer rings: https://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/ssd00267.htm

Gearhead does a few nice mixed-material 2.2 wheels:

Those are nice. They look good on your rig.
Gearhead isn't cheap. You get what you pay for I suppose. Those are a little out of my budget though

Sorry, just saw your budget requirements...

Wait for a sale!

Although, SSD are awesome as well - I have a set that I really like, all steel...
