Does anyone have hard tiles on a 3x3x3? Do any 3x3x3 rubik's come with good quality long-lasting hard tiles, and if so, where can I get it? If not, can I get the tiles anywhere? Thanks.

Cubesmith.com is the place for you.

Also, for future reference, please use the One Answer Question Thread for something as simple as this. A simple search should bring you to it fairly easily if it's not already on the home page.

If you're looking for the hard plastic tiles i've seen then you can get them from 'dollar store' cubes and glue them onto your cube of choice.

Otherwise cubesmith.com has what you need.

Thanks for your responses! On the cubesmith webiste, all of them are called "tiles." which ones are the hard ones and which ones are the plastic stickers?

Go to the "tiles" page on their website, and all of those are regular tiles, not vinyl stickers. You have a choice between textured tiles and smooth tiles; I prefer smooth, and I know that a lot of people do.

But as some people said above, tiles have less grip than stickers, even the textured ones, just so you know.

Also, there are Cube4You tiled cubes, and you can move the tiles around if you want to change the colour scheme or anything. The shades are great, and they feel just like stickers but are more durable. You can find them at most common cube shops:

http://www.icubemart.com/apps/webstore/products/show/2257246 - bright tiles
http://www.icubemart.com/apps/webstore/products/show/1950670 - regular tiles
http://www.cubedepotusa.com/apps/webstore/products/show/1658971 - regular tiles

Speedcubeshop also has them, but I believe they're out of stock.

You should also be advised that Cube4You tile cubes aren't the best speedcubes; they're decent, but they're not great.

ok, i see what you guys are saying now haha. for some reason i didn't see the stickers section initially..
anyway, i think i'll just stick with stickers (no pun intended) since they're faster. thanks
