Guys, I noticed when out running last week that the tire spin (on the rim) that a few of you mentioned was happening and is getting progressivly worse in the wet.
I'm going to remove the rock rings and drop a few dabs of CA where the tire meets the wheel. This should slow down the slippage until more ring options are available.

Also thought the new owners out there may want to be a bit proactive.
Happy Trails!

I was thinkin just rough up the back of the beadlock with some heavy grit sand paper? might work :confused:

on my cr-01 land cruiser i also experienced this as well as another friend. our fix was to place a small elastic band between the rim and tire . so far our rims have not spun in the rims even with a novak goat brushless system.

I found out they pull right off the bead if you put them on a brushless rustler! lol!!!

I flipped the bead lock ring over and havent had a bit of slippage since. Just got to be careful when your tightening them down to not go to tight.
