How to keep tires on beadlock rims?

Post by rlanza1054 » Sun Jun 08, 2014 8:38 pm

Hi,

I recently purchased the following tires and rims but the tires flew off on the first run:

RC4WD Mud Slingers Monster Size 40 Series Tires, RC4ZT0016

Axial AX8014 1/8th Oversize Bead Lock 8 Hole Wheels Black (2)

I tightened the ring down as far as I could, up until I thought I would not do damage to the tire itself.

I just wrote to Axail with the question but I'm waiting for the reply.

I read that this combo is really meant for climbing and not driving fast?

I don't consider myself to be running all that fast.

The rims are trash. I used to have them. Junk!

So could you recommend something to use in place of these rim for these tires?

Thanks

Yes any 40 series rim. I tried gluing the tires to those bead locks, but the hexes are weak as well.
