    Wheels for the UDR ??

    From everything I have seen, the front and rear wheels/tires are the same, or are they?? I am wanting to upgrade to beadlock wheels on my UDR and have found some being sold by RC4WD, but they list ones for the front and ones for the rear? They are made to be used with the Traxxas tires. Anyone know why there are front and rears??

    I would think they are same front and rear, since it has usable spares mounted in bed of truck?

    I called RC4wd and talked to a nice fellow. I asked him about the difference. He said that there had been a clearance problem, but couldn't tell me where. He said he didn't have a UDR there so he could try the two different wheels on the truck to see what the issue was. He said he couldn't think why you couldn't run them at all 4 corners. I went and looked at their new releases and the 0302 wheel was the first out and it has the smaller dimensions, and it is now listed for the front, and there is a 0291 wheel that is now listed and it has little larger dimension and is listed for the rear.

    I'd highly recommend going with Vitavon wheels. Highest quality you can get, no doubt and handle 6s very very well.

    So, you can just buy 4 of the 0291 part number wheels and use for front and rear?

    I've been thinking of getting those but never saw anyone make a post about them here.
    Front and rear are the same?

    I saw that RC4WD has wheels also now, they are sold in pairs of front and back, for abotu $30 cheaper/per pair compared to the Vitavons on Ebay

    They are the same front and rear. RC4WD makes good parts, but I wouldn't even compare them to Vitavon in my opinion. Arthur has incredible customer service and makes absolutely incredible parts for the UDR. He's a really cool guy.

    Yes. Same exact size, just a **** of a lot softer. I wouldn't recommend any concrete with these.

    Do a search over on the "bay" and you can see the different colors.

    If you talk to Arthur on facebook, he will do more colors.

    They are 17mm hex, so no as is. I'm going to be using them on my current scratch build, not thrilled about that format, but they look closer to the VW wide 5 format I need.

    Ok, just got mine in the mail. Not sure what the UDR wheel offset is, but from the INSIDE FACE OF THE HEX, you have 1-1/2" measurement. Running Summit hexes/adapters, it will come back to about 1-1/8". I hope this helps those in question about these. Nice wheel/tire combo if you can make it work.
