    Lightbulb [VIDEO] : Mounting Proline Trencher 40 series on Axial Narrow Rockster Bead Lock rims

    Hi,

    Here is a video that shows in detail how to mount the tires on the rims. How to prepare foams. What to watch. This is a model of a tire and wheel often recommended on the Summit forum, so it was an opportunity to offer a tutorial for those who need it (myself included, I sought an online, I found but not with these rims or tires togeteher, so I found it useful to make one for the community).



    Tires reference: [PROLINE Trencher 3.8" (40 Series) All Terrain Tires] PL1160
    Rims reference: [AXIAL Oversize NARROW Rockster Bead Lock] AX8071 (black), AX8072 (black chrome), AX8070 (white) and AX8073 (silver chrome)

    Sorry for the lack of technical vocabulary in English ... I did my best, the images speak for itself I think.

    I'm thinking about buying exactly these rims and tires. Can you pm me where you bought them from? I'm also from EU and local shops don't really have these things...

    Nice work Scaniris! A good detailed video. Thanks for posting.

    But I do wish you showed alittle bit more of the Trencher and Trencher X side by side at the end. I'm trying to decide on which one to get. Again good work!

    I really should be working.

    I have to say I prefer the taller narrower ones. Looks like they have way more tread, and the added ride height I like more. The other ones look fat, almost chunky

    I have the original trenchers like them a lot,Having a few different sets is not a bad thing
    I also have a set of moab xl's on cheyenne beadlocks and rc4wd rock crushers on axial rocksters.

    Couple things... So I have a set of the Trencher Tires and I have been mouting them on the Axial 8 Hole Rims. and it is going well. One person told me to trim the bead down, so I have been and While it is a time intensive process, it seems to make the beads seat much better. Also the tires come accros much wider if you install them on the regular 8hole rim instead of the narrow ones you pictured.

    Great video!

    i think the "x" give more stability in sideslopes,i put some 40 moabs on mine and rollover in sideslopes ten times more than with the stock wider tread. maybe i am a bad driver!lol!

    hey

    Just a word of advise before you go out and spend the money on the trencher axail combo.

    This combo would be great of a stock summit but for a brushless summit I found this combo to be very unbalanced and shakey.

    Perhaps installing tires onto rims that are not designed for them throws them far out in balance.

    that was my case anyways.......perhaps i have a bad set of tires.......or trimming the foam unbalanced but if i were to try it again.......i would not trim the foams if possible and see if the result was better.

    Any large tire will be unbalanced stock. Its not the rims, foams or operators fault. Just a fact with large tires going at speed.

    Like are you saying axial has discontinued them all together???
    And does anyone happen to have a picture comparing the offset of the axial in comparison to to stock wheels I bought the trenchers premounted on the tech 5 wheels and love the tires but hate the offset!!!

    Scaniris posted this thread back in 2011 when they were still available. If you find narrow beadlocks I dare say they will be 2nd hand.

    +1 I second this.

    I'm actually in talks with someone to acquire their axial narrows with mud slingers already on them, wants $120. But I think I`ll get them down to $80 If I can hold out lol

    Dosent seem too hard to cut down the wide ones.But from what I read the narrow ones have more offset(making the summit wider)this is the reason I really want them,NA I will go $85 on the narrows.

    Does anyone have a set of the wide ones and can measure the offset difference between them and the stock summit wheels.

    Also awesome video!!!

    The offset on the narrow rims is a half inch just like the wide rims and the stock canyons. The wide beadlocks rub on the a-arms though.

    That would be a snipe... I did have other members on this forum who were kind enough to PM me and ASK if they could have this opportunity if I passed it up. Real gentlemen there. But looks like someone pulled them out from under my feet. Sneaky frenchmen LoL Guess I`ll keep looking n hopefully find a new pair of old stock that got stuck behind a shelf.

    I'm sorry you feel that way NA. I had been looking at buying them since they were posted at the end of February but decide to buy a MERV first and then get the rims with Mudslingers that he was offering right after.

    And by the way, I may live in Quebec but I am an Anglophone.
