    they look like dual beadlocks...so, that means never having to glue tires ever again...should be the last set of wheels youll ever have to buy.

    so $100 bucks sounds rough but considering the money youll save over a year or so, especially if you race, i can see them paying for themselves...yes you can debond rubber from plastic wheels to save the money but "aint nobody got time for that"...and these look awesome! i may end up buying a set with my income tax. thanks for sharing.

    The problem is metal bends and once it does good luck fixing it.

    A pound and a half just in wheels not worth the weight, and how long before you bend one? They look cool but that is about it,there is a reason they are 50 bucks off cause no one wants a 3.0/2.2 paper weight

    All it takes is a small wobble to mess things up

    I have aluminum beadlocks made by the same company. I have had two of them for about two years. He other two for nine or ten months. They are solid wheels! Love them ♥ They are quality made and I haven't bent one yet and I have hit them hard a few times but they are still true. As supradrew stated, they are the last set of beadlocks that I will buy for my Ultimate

    If 1:1 rims bend and crack due to everyday driving, I can't see how these won't on rc vehicles that get driven hard.

    They look good to me. $100.00 for all 4 seems pretty reasonable .

    They should qualify under the category "Rimz 4 L1FE" because they look hard as nails!

    The one thing that I don't like about these besides the price is that they are all silver.
