I don't care what a wheel looks like, I just want it to be fast.

I like Color Shifter OH5s, 5DOTs, and Gold LWs off of Gold Medal Speed cars.

  • Forgot about this thread. I still like 5dots, but the 10spk on the'08 Evo are nice and recently I was suggested to use Y5s or wifis as that keeps getting stuck in my head. — EightOCRacing

personally liked PC5, 5DOT, and DD8 design.. will be awesome if it comes in alloy..

as for speeding, did some measuring of 850i gold medal speed (w/ LW, UH, 3SP, 5SP).. the UH was the heaviest of them all.. 

In real life and on Hot Wheels, I will always love old fashioned White Walls.

I'm also a fan of anything transparent.

I do race FTEs a lot, but I really enjoy when I find something different that zings.

For speed UH, 5DOT, RA6, and SKDisc are my favorites. But I'll use anything if it has potential.

My favorite wheels right now are the DD8 and the AeroDisc, based solely on looks alone. The DD8's have a clean minimalist sci-fi look that I think goes well with my steampunk builds, and the AeroDiscs are like a modern version of the UltraHots for giving a futuristic vibe. I had a Corvette convertible when I was a kid with UltraHots on it that I played with constantly, so I guess that's why I like the update to the look.

The current Matchbox wheel selections have the look for retro/vintage castings down very well. The only detail missing from the wheels on my Beetle is the VW logo in the center.

  • I do like that Matchbox wheels look like they could be on an actual car. The hubs and caps look sharp. And sometimes, you can get them to be pretty fast. — GenX_VintageRacing

So, going with my King of the Hill/Garage series, to date there have been twenty-four overall champions. Going by wheel type alone, the breakdown of champion wins is as follows...

5SP 8 wins, PR5 3 wins, LW,/BLING/TRAP5 2 wins, 3SP/Y5/7SP/J5/FTE/ID/OH5 1 win

Make of that data what you will...


  • Thanks for that. I've been curious about PR5s. — EightOCRacing
  • They seem to hold their own in my set up as the records show, but, of course, it has a lot to do with what casting they're on as well — Kevblokey
