SSD Rc are my go to beadlocks. Super easy to assemble and look great.

I am considering buying the 1.9 stock steel in silver am wondering do they rust or does the colour come off?

They're great quality, with good paint - scuff 'em up if you want them to get weatherized...

Otherwise they should be fine!

Man, that totally seals the deal for me.

One dumb question. How is it they fit regular 12mm hexes like on my SCX10ii and Traxxas (which I don't have) at the same time?

Cheers...

Hey hobbyjumper, I might be the dense one. I am not sure what you are asking. Here is a photo of the mount. Same wheel, just in black. Perhaps it answers your question?

I love the ssd steelies, because of the bead lock design the vanquish 2.2 stainless steel disc weights fit in them (with at least a .475 slw hub)

The 10.2 and the traxxas hexes are the same size, the main difference is the orientation and placement of the pin that holds it into place. Axial hex will click over the pin whereas traxxas actually has a grub/set screw type pin.

SSD sells their own hexes with a raised lip on the top of the hex, which fits perfectly into their hub design. I imagine the purpose of this is to tighten up the fit of the wheel so there is less play and wobble on the hex.

At the end of the day they’re all 12mm, so they’ll “work” but the ssd hex is recommended for best fit with the ssd wheels.

Not sure if this is what you were asking but hope it helps.

This is what sent me down the rabbit hole of confusion.

Just got them set up for my Gen 8 the other night. Got a question on with the steelies should I still vent the tires? When I go to squeeze the tires they seem air tight so wasn't sure if water getting inside would be an issue.




Thanks
Jay

Nice to know that they fit Canyon Trail Tires. I ordered a set of those rims yesterday.

Some vent, some don't...we don't have much choice if we drive to the high-desert to run trucks, the elevation will either balloon them or squash them, depending on which leg.



I vent with an exacto slit between tread blocks at 180*. Some use a small punch. Some wheels are already drilled to vent.



If you like to drive in a lot of water and run open-cell foams you surely can get them waterlogged and they'll never dry out. Venting the tire can allow most of any water ingress to spin out. But most of us don't run fast enough to actually do that. So they really should be disassembled and the foams dried out if they do get waterlogged.

Thanks for the input I guess I'll leave them as is and plan on breaking them down if I opt to play in the water at some point.


Take it easy

As a previous non-venter, I always vent with leather punch, 3 small holes evenly spaced. Closed cell foams.

Bonus...I no longer need 8mm hexes and have gone back to 3mm.
