    Wheel/tire combos?

    I'm looking to get 3.8" Mud Slingers in the near future. What width rim do they fit good on? Or does it matter? I've read some posts on here and saw that too wide of a rim is no good for the Mud Slingers. Also, what is a good site to find rims on? Looking for some mean looking beadlock rims. I'm a rookie with all this and I apologize if these are "duh" questions.

    I know that Axial makes a 40 series beadlock wheel that would fit the Mudslingers, but they are all really wide and would look really bad with the mudslingers. I got a set of the narrow versions years ago when they had them and I love them. You can cut and narrow the wide beadlocks to be the same width as the narrow ones used to be. I've actually done this successfully on a friend's rig and he's been happy with it for years. It's not hard to do as long as you are careful and take your time.
    Why can't other people share my opinions?

    Ohk. Did you cut them with a grinder with a cutting wheel(zip disc)?
