Default jconcepts buggy rims thumbs down

I mounted up some tires on the jconcepts rear buggy rims for my b4.1 and they are awful this is the spoke design wheels. the have some serious wobble, and the hole is a little big for the axle

Anyways the design is cool looking but out of the 4 in the package 3 of them where unusable, all of them are in the trash now.

The fronts seem ok, I hav e had such good luck with thier sc rims I was really disapointed in these

My guess is you got a bad batch. I've got around 2 dozen pairs and they're all perfect. Give JC a call and see if they'll do anything for you.

I am just going to stick with the associated stuff, even if they where a "good batch" the hole is still too big for the b4.1

if you buy some anytime soon, mount the rim on the car and check it to be true before you mount your tires up

I've got my fair share of wobbley associated wheels.... More for the t-4 then the b-4, but it is very frustrating... I always put the wheel on the vehicle now and give it a little gas to make sure I got a good set before I glue the tires.

I've run about a half dozen of thier fronts and about a dozen of their rears.

They seem to work out for me, they roll out true.

They only issues I have seen with them is I have one rear wheel where the nut likes to loosen up. And I have a pair of fronts where the bearings seem to want to slide in further than they need to.

They don't seem to affect the car though (as long as I check my wheel nuts lol).

Like stated though I think there is a little more quality in their SCT wheels.
