Default RC4WD Stamped 2.2 beadlock (other brand tire mounting)

There have been a few people ask about mounting other brand tires to the RC4WD Stamped 2.2 beadlocks. I have mounted Panthers, Axial and RC4WD tires with no issue. Here I show mounting Prolines. I think Losi are normally about like Axial beads, so thay should be okay.

It is my understanding that these are shipping now. So you can visit RC4WD to purchase them.


I have to first thank Sloppy for the idea to mount Prolines on the 1.9 Stamped beadlocks. 1BJB did a write up on how to mount other brands to the wheels.
http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=34794

This cost $1.75 to mount the Prolines. I first went to the Hardware store. picked up two 2" Sch 40 plastic Couplings. These have the same ID as the RC4WD rings, but have a much larger OD.



You can cut one of these down to three rings.



Then I cut the ring down to size. make sure its the same width or you will have issues with the tire pulling out. The plastic is a little bit heavier. Steel .056 Plastic .068





Then install the ring into the tire and begin to mount the beadlocks like normal. I used two longer screws to help get them mounted.



These make it much easier to mount the beadlocks.

Here is how they look before I started to tighten them.



Tighten them down one then the other and then back again. Until they are tight.



Now you can install the stock screws.



Once the 4 stock screws are in and tight you can remove the other two longer screws.



Then install the other two stock screws and tighten.



You can see that the Proline tire is nicely installed and airtight.

I posted a link to a thread that 1BJB posted mounting the TD's. This should work for the FI's too.

I'm curious, too. I've got some 2.2 stamped steel wheels, but with Pro-Line TSLs I'm about 3/8" from seating the rims together. Even with a 2.2 RC4WD tire (Baja Claw) I'm still 1/4" from seating.

Maybe I'm missing something, but how does the PVC work since it still has the same I.D. as the supplied aluminum ring?

Thanks!

I tried this method, it does work, but I had to cut the pipe a little bit narrower than the stock steel inner. it gave a little more room to compress the bead. I also sanded a 45 degree on the each side of the pipe to allow more room for the thick bead of the tire, seems to work. What a PITA though, took a few tries to get everything on straight., but they do look sweet.
