Default Revo Wheels Extensions, Any Good?

Does anybody run these with good results? Do they wear down your wheel bearings faster? Will they last a while? I want to extend the width of my slayer without the whole revo arm conversion. Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

I dont really like the idea of a button head screw holding my wheel on.

I havent tried them so I could be wrong and they may work great. But extending them that much is also going to have other effects on the truck too. Your turning radius is going to get larger for one.

Are you just trying to keep it from rolling in the corners ?

What ever your issue, it may be fixable with adjusting your suspension.

IMO any wheel extentionlonger than 1/2" wil lput to much stress on your rig... just wondering why are you wanting to go wider?

I have those and run them. I put them on so I could run zero offset rims on my Platinum.

While I agree about not liking the screw to hold the wheel on, I've not had any issues with that....

With ZERO offset truggy rims, my Revo is actually wider than any of my truggies.

They go on easy enough to issues there....

I ran them a bunch of times on the racetrack with a couple good sized jumps. They held up very well. Even some cartwheels which I thought for sure would result in broken parts did not. I like them...

As far as added stress and wear. I've got about a half gallon on mine with zero issues so far. Only time will tell.

I was planning to go wider because the slayer tends to tip quite a bit in the corners. I have tried lots of suspension setups and got the truck pretty much dialed in to its full potential. I was trying to find a way to widen the stance a hair without doing the whole revo conversion.

Thanks for the info. I assumed that they were pretty tough being 7075 grade aluminum, and from a trusted brand. I am still pondering what to do.
