How many sets of wheels do you have?

Just curious. I currently have an MA-010 and an MR-03 with about four extra sets of wheels. Unfortunately, I find this to be unacceptable - I need more.

I am about to buy four more sets of Team Atlas wheels in various offsets just so I can experiment a bit. Of course I could buy some cheap wheels for these size experiments, but I can't stand ugly wheels. At the very least, I figure that I can use them for any new chassis that I buy (I may pick up another MA-010 for heavy modding later).

Anybody else go overboard on wheels?

I tipically stick to one body for a long time and/or a wheel base and offset for a long time and choose wheels based on that criteria. I have probably 20 sets of plastic ASC wheels along with some PN and atomic plastic and alloy wheels. For alloys I probably have 10 sets with some installed on ASC's and always on my HFAY or competative cars.

I feel that alloy wheels are more likely to run true than plastic wheels. Most expensive wheels I have are a set of Tagu wheels that my wife has been using on her HFAY car since day 1.

I dont know.
I also am racing the same car for the past 2 years. But I do have a bit of everything (offset wise).
I think in total about 40 sets.
But 80% are atomic dish wheels.

Like most racers, i have a ton of rims. What i like to do is get a bunch of the PN dish rims. They all look the same and all different off-sets to mix and match for your different off-set bodies. Then you can put wheel dots on them, different colors for a good look that you can change.
