    Traxxas dished wheels

    I ordered a set of dished wheels for my jato that I was going to use with a set of badlands I already have. Are there specific tires you have to use for these wheels because I cannot figure out how they would go on, they are not like a normal traxxas wheel and tire I'm use to.

    Which Badlands do you have and what specific wheels do you have? Do you have links or part numbers (for Badlands and wheels)?

    Figured out my badlands are actually 2.8 tires so that explains that. But wondering why the bead looks different on these wheels. Part # 1974 and 1972. Doesn't look the typical traxxas bead to me.

    yeah, Traxxas threw us a little curve ball with that old bead style on the 2.2s. lol
    I'm guessing you have the newer Badlands with the Traxxas bead. They mount on 2.8 wheels that look like this:

    I have some wheels that they will work on off my stampede but front if different obviously. How do I go about finding tires for these dished wheels then. Seems like everything has the new bead style that I can find.

    Look for 2.2" tires. Almost all have the old bead style (in fact maybe they all do, but not totally certain on this one). Just look at the bead. You'll be able to tell if it matches your wheel.

    Here's an example: Pro Line Gladiator 2.2 M2: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Proline-Glad...-/360761703901

    Looking at #PRO107000. Is that the old style bead I need?

    PRO107000 works, but not PRO118201. This is for SC wheels which are 2.2" on one side and 3" on the other.
