I love the Clutch wheels. They're perfect for a build I have going right now.

I'd like to see you offer them in bronze as well. Their Twist wheels look like they could also scale down pretty well, especially if you were to offer them in the dark tint finish. Solid black wheels can be kinda boring...there are so many available.

As for tires, I'd love to see some larger 1.9 PBXs. Maybe the size of the OG Rock Beasts? Those tires did very well, just too small and narrow for me.


My scale tow rig and old comp rig:

At 109 a set I'm far more likely to buy.

Here is my entry for a set of your 1.9 Clutch wheels:


I'd use them on my Blazer build which I already have a set of 5 RC4WD Rally wheels with Pitbull PBX's already mounted on them. If I won the Clutch wheels, I'd buy a set of Rockbeasts [most likely] and powder coat the Clutch wheels white. I would need 5 [I'll buy the single wheel if needed] since I have a spare tire build:

Much, much better price! The high end market is already filled. Putting these wheels in the mid range price market would sell a lot more IMO.

That would be much more reasonable, If so I would now consider these an option.


As for colors I voted silver, but I was thinking a sandblasted aluminum finish as opposed to a polished or machined finish. I almost always go for black wheels just because I dont want "bling" or bright and shiny.


How will the colored wheels be colored? painted? anodized?

I ask because whether a color looks good or not depends on how it gets its color. In my opinion there are no good anodized colors (in the RC world at least), they just end up too bright and shiny as well as the color being an odd shade.

EDIT: One more thought, maybe have some optional colored beadlock rings that can be purchased separately for those who want them, instead of having a colored wheel option.

Rock Beast 1.5's

Im in for a set of either the clutch or combat 1.9s.

Love my Rock Beasts! They go anywhere i point my truck n clean out rather well. I agree with inspector86, a set of 1" wide wheels would be nice. Ive got a build im workin on id like to have a set of wide deep dish 1.9s for with kind of a low pro sidewall. As far as finish, colored beadlocks as an option would be nice. On the black wheels, some of them would look pretty sweet machined a little for that black/aluminum combo

These would be great tires in a softer compound?

[QUOTE=JatoTheRipper;5899997]Choosing one, cool photo is tough. I have a few sets of Pitbulls.

As far as the wheels, I'd like to see some clear anodized versions (not silver anodized) and even some black, re-machined wheels so you have black and raw aluminum on the same wheel.

How about the OG Rock Beasts - the tires that sucked me into the Pitbull brand. Please, please, please re-release these in Alien Kompound!

Do you mean the PB9001KK - 2.2 Rock Beast XOR? You want to see that in an Alien Kompound?

VERY NICE, looks lowered from original post way to go Pitbull, way more likely to buy, looks like SSD has some competition. As a matter a fact I’m sure I will. Probably have to get a set for my new VS4 black edition I’ve been saving for.

Wow you guys have a bunch of nice rigs! Pics in this thread are better then the ones in the pics threads. Awesome work guys! Unfortunately I don't own any of your rims or tires to enter, but Personally I like the darker colored rims black, gun metal, bronze. Blingy shiney rims just aren't for me.

I nearly forgot about this one.



Out at the GCM Adventure Series in October; it was a rainy, slick mess of mud, rocks, and clay in a 1:1 off road park. There was only 2 in our group, both running the least aggressive Pit Bull tires (Braven Ironsides on my Jeep, PBX ATs on the other truck) but neither of us were hurting for traction. It was legitimately impressive.

I think you guys nailed the price point, adjust ability, and like that they come with Scale Hardware/ and Hubs... Any 8 lug 1.55's ?!?! I'll no doubt pickup a set!

Only pics I have online...
