    No modifications needed..Mount them and go

    These rims allow the axle nut to be threaded on a lot more than the Kyosho dish wheels that I have



    You can see how the rims don't allow the nut to thread onto the axle very much (KYOW5202W)

    My Kyosho Lazer wheels look like they take about the same amount of threads as yours, they just barely get to the nylon, so they lock on fine. But I like the look of those, I almost bought them, probably try them next.

    Axial Beadlocks 2.2 Rockster Beadlocks you have to use the 1/10 slash Hex. It's wider
    And Team Losi Mini Zombie Max Tires Part number LOSB0984 (you have to stretch em a bit)

    Has anyone tried the rim/tire combo below? If not, does anyone have any thoughts? They are less expensive than many of the others I have looked at. Not that I think price is always directly related... Just wondering as I am looking for a combo that is balanced for both on-road and off-road with more of an emphasis on allowing more flexibility off-road. Would I be better off getting specific rims/tires for off-road and another set for on-road so that I can be as efficient as possible on each surface?

    Those will work fine but you will need to get the MLST2 hexes or the Driven Production adapters .

    These are about as wide as I've gone so far. Haven't had a chance to run them yet, glueing them was a pain in the a**.

    JConcepts Wheels for the MERV

    They are officially available :
    http://www.jconcepts.net/store/index...roducts_id=331

    For those of us that got the original version, an Axle collar is available to convert from 7mm to 4mm. JC said they will ship me some for 6$. I guess they are plastic. This is the only difference between the original and the MERV version.

    Just before contacting JC, I ordered those flanged bearings to do the 7-4mm conversion... I don't know yet if it will works, but it looks promising.

    I love the look of those, but are they heavy?

    Heavier than any non-beadlock, I remember someone weighed them and had a comparison to stock, don't remember the exact numbers though.

    Is it possible to use the Jconcept beadlock rims with the Traxxas Talon tires or Road Rage II 2.2 tires?

    Why? They're not really good at anything, they don't grip very well on pavement and are an absolute joke on any type of dirt. They do look decent though, which is why Traxxas puts them on all of their trucks. I think if all of RC sold their vehicles without tires/wheels or bodies Traxxas wouldn't be all that big of a company.

    For me, they are great, I drive only on pavement and so far, I like them a lot. And, they do like nice.

    Oh, if you all you do is pavement I guess they aren't too bad, they do last forever because it's such a hard compound. But if you try them on dirt at all you'll want something better. I can't see them working on the beadlocks because the Talons have a smaller diameter. And the ones meant for the Stampede are bigger than 2.2".

    It looks like HPI had discontinued or doesn't show on their site the wheel or tires. Here they are at hobbytown usa.

    Make sure you get rears on the HPI wheels since the fronts are non-hex style.

    I don't know if they'll fit, but try them out if you want... Guess you're gonna have to stretch them a bit

    EDIT: ooops, just saw that the anacondas are 1.9 inside-diameter... Don't know then, might work tho..

    they should make a sticky thread on all the aftermarket tires and wheels that fit and what fits with minor modifications, I'm posting here mostly so I can go back and refer to this page, I wish these companies would specify more specs about their tires and rims, nothing against traxxas but I wish the tires had a standard bead on the stock rims, i'd be easy to stretch mini LST tires. I'd be nice if proline had dished rims and badlands tires also. i'd like to see more offroad tire options besides racing tires with small tread

    the mlst tires.. why not just use the mlst wheels and the hub adapters ? i LOVE my duplexes, and i'm getting ready to mount a set of zombies tonight. (look up a few of my posts, i've been yapping about 'em for a few weeks now)

    Yesterday, I got the Pro-Line Road Rage 1/16 tires and the JConcept Tense beadlock wheels... Beware, the tires DON'T fit nicely, you have to push the tire inside the bead a lot and it won't stay there...

    im gonna get the adaptors, I just think its kind of sad how the tires are so close in size and they don't fit. If they fit then proline would have more reason to make 1/16 tires and rims. Anyways the mini-magneto's look good to me, duplexes would be my next choice

    at $25 for a full set of mounted losi tires (plus 10 bucks for the adapters) compared to almost 70 bucks for the titus/dirt hawg combo it's crazy not to at least try them.

    note on the losi tires.. don't get a premounted set, buy the wheels and tires separate, that way you can sand/grind the chrome plating off them so when you glue the tire on it actually sticks. hopmeup's ebay store has some of the best prices i've seen on them.

    I was at my LHS yesterday and saw some old traxxas step-pin tires, I think they are the old rear tires off the bandit. They look like they'll fit perfect on a set of front buggy rims. Or at least the kyosho front rims they had there (kyosho fit?) they have no foams included but the tread looks awesome. I'll report if they work out but they arent a popular tire

    Ugliest wheels... For toe and camber calibration



    Steel plates found a local hardware store for 42 cents each! It makes the calibration of the toe and camber a lot easier and precise.

    As I said before, it's hard to install these tires on these rims, but, they don't look so bad after all...



    Hope they stay put under high speed runs, will try them next week...

    The steel plates are a great idea!

    You could get some oversized ones as they would show more if your out even just a bit.

    I have a cheapo toe & camber gauge, but I tend to just use the cabmer on it side against a straight piece of wood for doing the toe calibrations.

    I just have too much slop for it to be too much use, but it gives me a pretty good ball park.
    I just bash anyhow.

    But, the HR Alum. knuckles ARE on my X-Mas list! =)

    Proline Velocity 1:10 Truck and Buggy wheels

    they all are 2.2" which is roughly the mounting diameter of the Mini-revo's original wheels.

    http://www.prolineracing.com/product...ls-377-36.html
    http://www.prolineracing.com/product...ls-376-36.html

    the proline website elaborates about the "Stylized Pro-Line logo" and other obvious or useless stuff but not about the dimensions or the used wheel-hex.

    so.. are these wheels known to fit or not to fit?

    thanks for the info.

    I like the Proline tires.. like the Bow-Tie or the Gladiator.
    they state: 'Fits any 2.2” truck wheel.' but if I'm not mistaken, they come in various widths. and again.. this information seems to be classified on the proline website.
    not to mention the bed dimensions.

    E.g.:
    http://www.prolineracing.com/product...es-241-93.html

    I have found hint that "Hot Bodies" rear buggy wheels will fit.
    E.g.:
    http://www.hbeurope.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=61518
    here is the hint:
    http://www.hbeurope.com/popupgallery...mid=3&imgid=36
    that looks like a 12mm hex.

    can anyone confirm this?
