    Proline split six beadlock wheels with Streetfighter tires, good for up to 60 mph or so

    I've run proline bead locks before, they're ok, i switched back to regular glued rims last week because they kept popping off the rims, they're good, but can only take so much

    can you put any kind of proline tire on beadlocks or only certain models cause i have been eyeballing streetfighters for a while but want to stay with beadlocks?

    Any of Prolines SC tires will fit on the beadlocks

    The point of beadlocks is to be able the change the tire when it wears out really and street tires dont wear out really fast so reg wheels should be fine

    The reason why i want to stay with bead locks is Im absolutely horrible at glueing wheels. I glued my fingers together, glued my tire to the table, the news paper to the table, 0h ya and one last one.....a drop fell in my lap and before a noticed I had glued my shorts to my underwear. BEADLOCKS FOR ME

    12mm

    Plenty of 1/10 wheels and tires will fit

    Anacondas work pretty well but wear a bit quicker than the Streetfighters

    With anacondas do you have to order 2 sets of rears or 2 sets of fronts for slash 4x4?
