Default Do the Epic beadlocks scratch?

Everyone knows the edge of the rims on the stock Slash wheels get scratched up easily. Does this happen to the Pro-line wheels? The black and red ones are powder coated, correct? What about the stainless steel ones, do they get messed up easily? I would love to get some but don't see putting the cash down if I'm just gonna make them ugly after a few runs.

The beadlock rings do scratch, but not from being on track, they scratch from the beadlock screws digging in when you screw them in. I can't say they wouldn't scratch from a direct T-bone impact into one from another truck, but I have had good luck with mine so far.

I have red rings, and the plain silver set as well. I plan on painting the silver set a custom color to match a body I have done.

Scratches come with the territory, don't be afraid of a little bit of battle wounds.
I gave you feedback when you purchased something
from me, so please return the favor.
