Default Wheels

Has anyone tried the Integy climbers? They are a clone of badlands a bit cheaper.

I agree. Badlands on tech-5 wheels are a dollar more a pair. I have used proline wheels and tires for years and they've been very durable and consistent. Integy, on the other hand, has very inconsistent products. The only parts I'll use them for are bellcranks and rear hubs on my savage.

I really want to find some rulux 1/2" offset wheels and stretch badlands on them but can't find any on eBay.

The 3.2 badlands are hard to find also.

I know, I love the look of the rulux/badlands combo but I doubt I'll get it.

I bought a set of 4 of the integy badlands off ebay last week. Its not easy to find 3.2 tires and I just want them for looks on aluminum wheels for a shelf queen.

They come unglued...which is actually good because integy wheels are weak and break easily.

The tires feel like a hard compound. Not nearly as sticky as proline. Probably last a little longer but get worse traction. The foams are extremely soft. I will probably end up replacing them with molded foams. They do look good, and I am sure the tires are fine, even if the wheels and foam are garbage.

I paid 40 shipped for 2 pairs, so I am happy with them.

So would you say the real badlands are worth 2x the price since I would be bashing with them?

I would get prolines for my emaxx over these if I intended on driving a lot with them.
If you are tight on money then be patient and keep an eye on forums and auctions and you can find a set for much less than retail.

Why not stretch the 3.8 badlands over a 4.0 vtr. They have the same bead so they would mount pretty easily.

Would a 3.2 badland work on a 3.5 Ofna dish wheel?

It should. Those ofna wheels are supposed to work with any Maxx or Proline monster truck tires.

The wheels are an odd size at 3.5, but you should be able to stretch them over it.

I wonder if its a 3.5in wheel so it can fit 3.8 or 3.2 tires?

If I buy some the old 3.2 badlands my friend has im putting them on those wheels. I know a lot of people put the 3.2 badlands on the 3.7 rulux wheels a while back. It would be nice if they fit both because if I got the badlands and wore them down I could buy some 3.8s to put on the same wheels.
