Default Beadlocks don't fit canyon trail

I was told by a few people to buy some beadlocks for my TRX 4. So I bought some and I baked off my tires front the stock wheels. However I went to put on the new wheels and they won't fit on the tires. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be much appreciated

Does the tire bead keep slipping out when you tighten the beadlock screws? Or is it a different issue? I had a ton of problems getting mine to fit into the Gmade SR02 wheels, but it ended up being the extra glue remnants that was the culprit. Once I peeled every last bit of glue off the tire it mounted up nice. Was a pain but they really do perform nice especially with the tread mod.


If they don’t want to fit at all, is it possible you bought 2.2 wheels? The tires are 1.9 size.

The bead goes in On one half but won't go in on the other half. I'll take a photo

Yup, this can be very frustrating!

This is common with the Canyon Trails as well as Proline tires due to the shape of the bead. It's formed on the outside but round on the inside. In order to get Canyon Trails and Proline's to fit my SSD wheels I had to buy different beadlock rings. I have used both of these and they work great. My preference so far is the Locked Up RC rings. Keep in mind though, that even with these new rings mounting the tires is a challenge and takes some patience. I used Windex on the inside and outside of the tire bead for some slippery help. LURC RC4WD

Proline wheels fit the Canyon Trails very nicely without the need for different rings. IMO, their aluminum wheels are pretty expensive. They do make plastic wheels that I've used with the Canyon Trails which mount up perfectly. They have a cavity shaped ring which makes mounting non-Proline foams a bit of a challenge though.

Don't give up, the Canyon Trail tires are well worth the time and effort it takes to get them mounted!!

I've got new foams in the mail. I'll try again when I get them. Hopefully I'll be able to get it to work.

I put mine on 2.2's. Nothing I tried worked. They are just too big.

Yeah I'm not sure what's wrong with mine. Is it possible they could have stretched when I pulled them off the stock ones?

proline and traxxas canyon trail tires have a wedge style bead. if you look at any other tire besides aka evo and traxxas 2.8 (along with some other traxxas tires), you will find a more square bead. most beadlocks on the market today (besides traxxas 1.9's and proline) will have a squared channel.

I still think it might be the glue, I see some remnants on your photo. Peel every last bit of glue off so you only have rubber anywhere near the bead. The hard, plastic-like surface the rubber turns into with the glue present makes for a stiff surface thatís hard to fit into the beadlock and slips out easily.

I've mounted them on HR stamped steel of two different varieties.

Yup. I just spent too much time trying to finesse Canyon trails on RC4WD stamped steelies. No way in heck that combination will ever work. The tire holes are closer to 2.2 diameter. I DID get them to fit SSD steelies, but it wasn't satisfactory. Flat on one side, bulgy on the other. So, also no good.

i use a few dabs of super glue around the bead and let it dry then move on to the other side then bolt them together the glue only holds for a few runs on the aluminum wheels
