    Proline vs stock tires.

    Has anyone weighed the Mx43 beas lock wheel and tire combo? After 2 years one of my stocks failed. I figured with the bead lock a tire replacement would be much easier.

    But I'm worried about the weight if they are heavier it will reduce acceleration and kill my run time as well as stress the batteries more.

    Well, this happened to my 6S truck, only when I had the Trenchers on. Not once, but twice.

    I have run the Badlands without issue on my 8s for several months. Someone on here posted the weights and they are heavier than stock. I do not run them when I'm bashing as they are quite a bit harder and I worry about damaging something.
    The bead lock system is a pain, lots of screws front and back...

    I have a 6s that has had its' electronics beefed up. I run Prolines, and haven't had any premature wear problems. As far as performance, (IMO) I get better performance, because I don't have to back off the throttle due to ballooning tires.

    Just fitted Badlands. Didnt weigh them but they’re definitely heavier than stock.

    I can weigh one of the badlands for comparison. From other forums the only knock on the duratrax is the wheels don't survive a wreck as good as stock or proline, but that's pretty subjective considering how do you actually compare that.

    I’ve heard from at least one member where the glue doesn’t hold up. That coupled with the fact they weigh almost as much as the badlands has stopped me from considering them.

    I'm new to the badlands party, but so far they changed my life. I didn't notice any immediate ill effects of the weight, more beneficial than anything really that I noticed.

    I love the proline badlands. I just went to the dunes, and surfed them just like a quad or side by side. didnt try the stocks.

    I like my badlands, use em mostly on a small dirt track, less wheelies in loose traction material, but way more stability. less tire ballooning.

    I lost my ability to do back flips, unless the ramp is a kicker. with stock tires I can backflip in the air on command basically lol.


    I had an accident when I hit a shed and I felt the weight of the tires, caused the axle to rip out the axle carrier, bearings and all. xmaxx kept going, left a front passenger side wheel+axle&dogbone behind lol.
