    Looking for beadlock wheels other than Vitavon...

    I see that RC4WD has beadlocks for the UDR. Anyone else?

    Sorry, I also haven't any experienced of them yet. So no words about them.
    But if it was me, I love the look of Vitavon though.

    Came here looking for the same thing.

    I have a set of 2.2 method beadlock wheels sitting unused and brand new.

    Any reason I couldnt run them?

    I am waiting for my UDR to come in sometime in October or I would test for them.

    If you're referring to a 2.2 crawler wheel, then a 17mm hex adapter bolted up to the 6 bolt hub would work, but it'd need serious offset, at least in the front.

    Maybe a .475 hub would work, but I don't even know if anyone makes a 17mm adapter that'll bolt up to those wheels. Most 2.2 wheels are for crawlers which use a 12mm hex or no hex at all.

    Now if you're referring to 2.2/3.0 wheels, then as long as they have a 17mm hex adapter they'd work fine.

    I would love a beadlock wheel for UDR tires, but with a standard 17mm hub.

    I had to cut the inner structure of my ProLine URD Hyrax tires to fit 17mm Trinidad S/C wheels:

    Yeah, I'm waiting for someone to make a scale looking, plastic beadlock in 2.2/3.0 with a 17mm hex. While the aluminum wheels look good, I can get close with some painting while saving on rotational weight.
