    !!Tire and Wheel Trouble!!!

    Im having problems keeping tires on!!! Im running 3s and keep having to reglue factory wheels and tires. Been looking at beadlocks but they say they are not for high speed racing use. Any suggestions on what to do or any tire and wheel combo suggestions. i mainly race on tracks and in the yard. hardly ever do any bashing.

    I have the Proline bead locks with the Proline Street fighter tires! I am running 3s with the MMP 2400 combo geared 22/50! I have them strapped and have no problem with loosing tires off the rims

    Strapped=taped

    You tape the inside of the tires so they cant expand or "balloon"
    Nothin' like a 4 on the floor and a V8
