Default alloy bead locks on a rustler 3.3???????

ok so im tired of breaking the cheap nylon wheels. i've been looking all over the internet and cant seem to find anyone that has put alloy beadlocks on a high speed truck. obviously they are some what expencive. which is why im asking for some oppinions.

has anyone had any experience with these on anything other than a rock crawler? if so, any suggestions on the brand?

the amoeba alloy wheel looks nice with the ability to adjust the offset and they are the least expencive i have found. but the old saying you get what you pay for has me hesitating.

nope - they are too expensive and they will just bend... Look into proline tires.
But they dont last forever. Wheels and tires are probley one of the higher cost of RC
