    Axial Beadlock rims

    Does anyone have experenice with these rims with Proline 40 sereis tires? Thinking about getting a set but not sure how well they will hold up? Read some unfavorable reviews on the web.

    I have a set - they chew up RPM a-arms, I'm not sure if the stock arms clear the beadlocks. They look pretty but they are HEAVY...

    They are a massive pain, alot of little screws, and as noted very heavy. My buddy tried big Joes and Losi Super bolt on, and both blew off at about 45mph.

    I recently bought a set of these http://www.maximizerproducts.com/mod...hex_P67015.cfm

    I haven't had a chance to unscrew the 128 screws that are holding my MOABs on to the Axial beadlocks to try them yet, but they were so cheap I couldn't pass 'em by. Yes, they're kinda ugly, but I anticipate being able to RIT dye them black.

    I run the Axial beadlocks with ProLine 40 series Bowties (low profile). I use these on my Savage Flux with 6S lipo, and they're far superior to stock wheels/tires and add much needed stability to the truck.
