Default Looking for 5-Slot Mags

These have been discontinued but I'm hoping that there are some out there that are close for a project I;m working on.

Gearhead makes a slotted mag (glue on) in 1.55": https://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/gea1002.htm


I swear someone released an 8 lug 1.9" slotted mag (beadlock with no visible outer ring) within the last 6 months, but I'm drawing a blank on who it was?

I'm showing my age here. 8-lug was used on 1:1 3/4 and 1 tons back in the 70s. 16-1/2" dia. I had a set of aluminum 5-slot 8-lug on a 1 ton van. And 16-1/2" was considered BIG as many full size cars were 15" and compacts could be down at 12" or 13".

Truly nice wheels. They look so good and the price is hot

I had a SRW 1-Ton Dodge Power Wagon with American Racing 8-Lug Alum Wheels. American still makes them in natural and black. But they would look odd on a scale that was copying a 1:1 quarter/half-ton.

Exactly - 8-lugs look way out of place on most trail trucks that are 1/2 or 3/4 ton trucks.

Unless you do a 1 ton axle swap?

Fair enough, but that's going to require one hell of a brushless motor and a 96S LiPo!

I would love to see some of the GCM rims made again. I've seen a set of really good reproductions in 2.2's, but I couldn't seem to find them again.
