    stablemaxx revolvers with 2.8 badlands

    Anyone done this and have a pic. I have a spare set of badlands laying on the shelf and was thinking might be a good looking setup. Pic if you have them please seemsd like everyone puts trenchers on them and not much else.

    I think the badlands aren't as wide as the trenchers. That would be a really tight fit.

    If I had a set, I would try it! I currently have 2 sets of 3.2 revolvers. One with trenchers, and one with bandito MT tires.

    Just an fyi if you do decide to try bad lands on the stablemaxx rims do not cut the beads just cut the rims. works great will post pics after I get the new badlands I need since I cut one like the trenchers say to and it doesn't look right or sit well. But if you leave the bead it sits very nicely.

    How did the wheels n tires work out? Did you have to trim the foam? Can you post some pictures? I would really like to try this set up.

    I had a hiccup with the rims and I'm out of state for now. Didn't have to trim the foams I should be home friday I'll take a pic of the unglued set then it really looks good if you dont trim the tire I'm very happy with it.

    The bad lands look very narrow, is it because the bead isn't cut?

    No with the bead cut it just didn't sit right. The badlands will never be a wide as the trenchers will different design I'm pleased with them and will review them after my build is done still waiting on parts and money lol. I did the badlands for two reasons first and the real reason is they were in a drawer doing nothing and the second is because everyone put trenchers on the revolvers.

    Aka glue is the best tire glue i've used. The stuff i got even came with large rubber bands to wrap around the tires.
