I'm pleased you choose to have SSD wheels as your first set of aftermarket wheels. Hopefully the first of many

We pack spare screws with each wheel pair (always have). It's not been a major issue really.

I have sample silver one, just didn't look that great. Silver doesn't always work on all designs. Black also hides some designs. That'a why I often dont do all wheels in all colors. Anyway will give it some thought...

I can confirm this has never been an issue for me. I've never lost a beadlock screw on an SSD wheel. I assume they come with thread lock from the factory because I've never done it myself. And including spare screws is a very nice touch.

No. As far as I have found LURC rings only work on LURC wheels.

+1 I thought I have been missing something. I have been looking for a wheel with a deeper dish but they all seem almost flat.

I believe the lurc rings fit the axial wheels with 6 bolt ring.

Anyhow, I'm usually not a fan of these style wheels for crawlers but I am diggin it in the bronze!

What size bolt holds the hub in place? Is it same threads as the SLW. Or is it Metric? I want to get acorn bolts for the hubs.

Thanks in advance,

Brandon

Stock hubs are M2.5.

You can use Locked Up M2.5 acorn nuts and set screws with the stock hubs or switch to SLW hubs and use 4-40 scale lugs. SSD also mentioned coming out with some scale hub bolts but I don't know when that is happening.
