    Proline beadlocks w/ street fighter tires

    I think this set up looks sweet. Can't wait to try them out

    Work great on high bite surfaces. Same wheels and tires Im running on asphalt and concrete, only mine are 0 offset for the long arm suspension.

    You'll love the street fighters on asphalt and concrete. I was very impressed with how well they stick, and the wear is good too.

    Camber on rears? Looks a bit odd. Maybe camera angle?

    Very nice. Same setup I have only on 2wd and it is excellent for street driving. On high power I would occasionally pull a bead out so I dabbed a bit of 3M 77 adhesive on the tire bead with a Q-tip, let it get tacky, and then locked it down and haven't had any issues since.

    I actually ran a thin bead of tire glue on back side of wheels hopefully they hold up. Also glued the hex to inside of wheels so they won't round off. Thanks

    Nice setup! I glued mine onto a set of factory Slash wheels. The Street Fighters are good & sticky, they'll make it hard to keep the "shiny side up, & the rubber side down" on quick turns!. Enjoy!!!

    I do the same thing but a thin bead of silicone on both sides. doesnt have to be a big fat honking bead either, just a thin bead to coat the surface so when you assemble it spreads out. If you get silicone oozing out when you tighten down the beadlock screws you put on too much. Ive thrown some serious power at them and have yet to pull a bead out.
