Default $15 eBay Gmade beadlock 1.9 wheels.

So like everyone else on a budget, I was looking for cheap wheels. But even used proline or axial 8 holes are still $20. So I checked eBay



They claim gmade, but I think its more of a key term.
I ordered them on dec 27, and they arrived jan 24.

They arrived in a bubble envelope in a bag, with separate baggies for the m2.5 bolts and nuts.
They are 3 piece wheels, with a hubcap making the 4th piece.


The wheel face has 6 places it slots into the ring to prevent slipping.


Overall it's a decent looking wheel with multiple colors/chrome finishes available


The only concern I have is the area around the hex looks a little weak, but the hex recesses for the wheel hardware is nice.


As a bonus, two longer bolts are included to help with assembly!


Offset is about normal


The bolt heads are recessed too. The hubcap uses 6 more bolts to hold it down and hide the nut.


Today I slapped them on my TF2


And drove around



I ended up blowing up the rear driveshaft instead of cracking a hex so I guess that's a win.
