Default wobbley JC truggy wheels?

i have a set of JC truggy tires and wheels they are effd up lol. is there any way i can heat these things up or do somthing to get them to get straitened out? i got them used so im not sure if they where stored with something on top of them or alot of crashes.. they maybe are just shot, i dunno, but they have a nice set of crosshairs id like to use i have some extra hexs so i though about making a jig to mount them up and maybe heat them and push them the other direction. thanks guys.

Were these by chance the yellow (med) crosshairs and wheels that came with the RC8T CE kit?

For some reason these were the hardest mounting tires I've had in a long time....mine look like they were glued by a 3 year old.... I'm not sure if I was just used to mounting soft and super soft tires or the wheels were odd somehow.

Ironically - I was just thinking yesterday that I'm going to try to heatgun the really bad areas off and reglue. I'm usually an acetone guy, and if I have to I guess I'll sacrifice the foams, but was going to try the gun first.

JC may have corrected the issue already so don't shoot the messenger, lol. The ones i have were the worse truggy wheels i've ever seen. Not only do they wobble like hell, 2 developed bad cracks from the center out. These were early release wheels so hopefully the cracking issue has been fixed. I run a losi. The proline 4.0 wheels work ok and the best standard(3.7")wheels i've used are associated truggy rims. No cracking, no wobbling.

I had a set of white JC wheels that distorted pretty bad as well. Got about two runs on them on a rough track; but no major wrecks. Not sure what was up, but I ditched them.

I've only run AKA wheels on my truggy and had ZERO cracking or distortion issues. (Losi 2.0 T)
