I fixed mine, although they were not as badly stripped as yours, using epoxy putty. Even did it that the wheel can still come off. Take your axle hub, wrap it tightly in a single layer of cling film (stuff to wrap food in). Insert into wheel and epoxy in the gaps (in your case I would say you really need to be as accurate as possible in trying to get it dead centre). Let it cure and remove axle hub (the cling film should have prevented it binding into the wheel). I would also rough up the inside of the wheel to improve contact and adhesion of the putty.
Hope this helps.

I have used epoxy to repair my crawler beadlocks, it worked for a week or two, then the epoxy gives out. When I repaired mine they had quite a bit of the hex, I doubt it will work on yours, there is really nothing in their for the epoxy to hold on to. Sadly, I think they are toast, but I'd try the epoxy before getting another set, let us know what how it worked.
I'm guess this was caused by loose wheel nuts?

Yesh caused by loose hex nuts. i'll try the epoxy deal. but im gonna order a new set anyways. thanks. I'll see what happen later this week
You can superglue a wheel hex in that rim and it will last a long time. I have had way worse than that and they have lasted more than a year.

I did the same thing. Called proline and they sold me just I one part of the wheel for 3.00 then sold me an extra set for 1/2 price. Nice people. Give them a call.
Not sure how but now j have 12 wheels now. More rims than tires. I'm looking for a good set of street tires now. Any ideas.
I've heard good things about these, and the price is right from what I've seen.

I will say, Proline has great customer service. One of my trenchers x sc tires had a little tear on the side wall next to the inside bead, emailed them a photo, a few hours later they emailed me back saying they would replace that tire, just email them a copy of the invoice and a mailing address. The shipping department was kinda slow, took almost 2 weeks to get the replacement, arrived today and was a retail packaged pair.

Question a little off topic but still on the split six from Proline, do you guys use thread locker on the screws, I had a Gladiator yesterday come free from the bead lock, when I got home and checked it out I had over half of the screw threads stripped out??????
Keep on Bashing and you will keep on Trashing
I have not had an issue with that yet. I am still only running the stock motor and on 2s most of the time.
