    Take your beadlocks apart and scuff up both surfaces that touch the tire so it can get a better hold.

    I have to agree with jimmie, I finally gave up on beadlocks when I'm running 3S. You also need a really good glue job on glued rims if you're doing speed runs on pavement. The centrifugal force yanks the tires away from the rims pretty hard!

    Center diff is installed. Will try to scuff up the beadlocks. It was crazy, it took the front tires off in like 15 seconds! And it was on dirt/tanbark. Is actual tire glue the best or rubber cement?

    CA glue (Karzy Glue, Super Glue) is what is typically used. Don't use rubber cement.

    i use krazy glue advanced formula and it has held up on 65mph speed runs .even runs where i hit the throttle too hard on a speed run at 50 causing major balloning!

    beadlocks are junk, they are ok for a rock crawler that doesnt see speed.... they can not hold onto a bead like a wheel/tire that is glued....


    glue the tires to the rim
