This is the DE Racing set of four Borrego 8 1/8TH Scale Buggy Wheels in Silver. DE Racing decided to get back to their 1/8 scale roots and create the "Borrego 8".

The Borrego 8 wheels also feature a simulated bead lock ring and foam mud plug to their design.Features:

Though appearance is always important, DE Racing's effort was concentrated in creating a wheel that would truly perform at the top of today's competitive racing world. Their first focus was on the wheel's level of rigidity; Rigidity in not only the face of the wheel, but also in its inner glue beads hoop strength. DE Racing believes that a rigid wheel helps eliminate the unpleasant undampened spring effect of a soft flexible wheel and allows for a more confident, consistent handling car on fast and bumpy track surfaces.
Second, DE Racing knew the wheel had to be tough, tough enough to endure the worst a track or driver could throw at them. De Racing accomplished both of these goals with a wheel that is more rigid than two piece wheels, yet as light weight as most one piece wheels.
