    They work great both on road and offroad. altho they wear quite fast on road. mine are fairly worn down

    If i had good talons still that is what i would use. but i use my set of stock t-maxx 2.5 tires now

    Here is mine, best tire ever! Great for bashing, racing and thinning out your lawn.

    Those are 17mm wheels. The blue nuts are the most common for them.

    It is a mandatory upgrade, those are 17mm wheels, but the E-revo uses 14mm hexes, so it needs an adapter. 17mm wheels are better because there are more choices and there is less stress on the wheel hub.

    hey bob,

    what voltage and gearing do you run your setup on?

    I guess what I'm really asking is, how do the beadlocks handle high speeds?

    Have you taken the truck over 60mph?

    I ask because a local guy here turned me away from them saying anything over 50mph would cause them to fail.

    5s mostly. About once a week I run on 6s geared 22/62 which should put it in the mid 50's. They do better than the stock Talons do. The only problems I have had with the beadlocks is they never want to stay balanced.

    They are probably 1/4 of an inch taller compared to being mounted on a regular MT rim. Here's a couple pictures I took when I first mounted them...







    I would remove my old set of badlands from the dish rims and re-install them on lprs if it wasn't such a HUGE pain in the rear to get them off the rims. I know I could boil or bake them but been there, done that, and I swore I wouldn't do it again! You will really like the badlands on the lprs...highly recommended...they just look right to me on the lprs.

    Thanks once again Ajb, I went ahead and ordered the badlands on proline LPR's in black. Should be here in a couple days. Thanks for all the help.

    I have been reading a few threads on the subject of Badlands on Halfups and I still can't get myself to do it, even though I love the idea of Badlands mounted on a LPR rims. That gap that is left, you can see it when you squeeze the tire, between the outer bead and the sidewall of the tire bothers me a bit, won't dirt constantly get hard packed in there. Has anyone experienced a problem with dirt, sand, gravel getting packed in that gap? Or if a bead of glue is applied to the tire's sidewall to glue it to the outside bead of the rim, will it stay glued? Has anyone done that?

    I have beat the crap out my Revo with the badland/lpr setup and don't have a single complaint (other than wishing I had tried it sooner ). I only glued the inner bead but I do not see why you could not glue the sidewall to the outer lip of the rim as well. Once in a while I get a bit of grass caught in the sdiewall but it seems to work it's way out. If you try it and don't like the results, I would buy the rims and tires off you in a second (for a good price of course ).

    I went the same route of deciding to mount badlands on LPR 1/2 offset.

    I believe there will be more work ( I dunno how to do but I'll follow tutorials ) but there should be also less rolling, when finished, due to the thinner tyre shoulder. Am I right ?

    BTW did you all tape your internals ?

    Do you use MTR foam or use the foam that come with the badlands?

    Over revO...I just used the stock foam but I should probably have taped them but didn't.

    Emmeth...I actually found I had to be quite a bit more carfeul while turning because stretching the badlands onto the lprs causes the outer lugs of the tire to be pushed outward towards the shoulder (if that makes sense ). You could simply trim the outer lugs some to fix the problem. As I am only bashing with them I am just a bit more careful while turning not to over do it.

    Well that's good to know, so I have to find a way to order me a set without bringing to much attention to it from the wife. This ERevo business I'm getting into is costly and the first credit card bill just came in, she ain't happy

    So I was scrolling threw trying to get an idea on some tires to run with my Erevo and saw this setup so my question is.. Where do I find the Jconcepts rulux lpr halfups? And what about the 17mm hex kit? I like the Maximizer ones but are they 17mm? And what does lpr stand for? Couldn't find it threw Google.. The websites where I could buy these, from would be great. And is there a way to get rid of the tire wobble? It annoys the heck out of me lol. Thanks guys

    Old thread dude.. and necroposting is something that's frowned upon.

    To answer your question: The Rulux half-ups and the 3.2" Badlands are discontinued. The Badlands are available in 3.8" size. Check ProLine Racings web site.

    Some stores might have the 3.2" version in stock still though.
