    109 mph and Traxxas dished wheel blow up...

    Yesterday I have reached 109mph (175 kmph) and one of brand new Traxxas dished wheel blow up.
    The tire came unglued only the insert is damaged. Also the car didn't hurt to much.
    I have been using this wheels only for 10min. What is wrong with them?

    Is the tire still intact or did the tire just separate from the rim?? More pics please.

    The tire is almost intact, the inner tape is a bit broken. Tire just become detached from the rim. I already sent it to claim to the Traxxas.

    Yeah, looks to me like it was just poorly glued. Odd because I have never had that problem. The Traxxas tires always seem to be glued very well.

    I assume the tires were preglued to the wheels? Nice speed!

    These tires are terrible. Again, two new tires Traxxas dished. This time become detached/unglue from the inside of the wheels at a speed of 85mph. The inner foam shot out. Stock tires were significantly better than this one.

    Try buying them unglued and mounting them yourself.
