It's time to release the new GCM Mini-Mag (http://gcmracing.ca/viewcategory.php?groupid=41) wheel series. These simple beadlocks are designed to offer the scale truck builders a solution for small 1.55 AND 1.7 tire installation, stock looks, and good tire tuck under the fenders. We have 5 Slot and now 10-Hole varieties for your build.

These wheels will fit in the same places as the RC4wd 1.55 wagon beadlocks, but our rims are wider by a full 3mm on the INSIDE bead, and the same spacing on the wheel face. This means the tire will fit more square on the sidewall, reduce puffy foam issues, and make a more realistic tire tread print. We really like the results! The rim design alone and wider mount width will draw the tire into the truck, instead of pushing it out.

Each rim is finished in a clean CNC lathe cut for a near polished finish.

Shown below with a 1.55 Rock Crusher locked on, and installed with an Axial SCX10 hex on a K44 axle. Even with the tiny clod body and no fender extensions there's easily over half tire coverage for Class 1 rules.

Shown below beside our 1.9 Beadlock slot mags, the Mini-Mag offers a very scale look and Beadlock convenience.

Let's install some tires for fitment and comparison. From largest on the left to smallest on the right, we will show the PitBull 1.55 Growler, the Baja 1.7 Claw, and the Rock Crusher 1.55.

All 3 together... Growler on the left, Crusher up top, and Claw on the right.

Each rim assembles INside the wheel, with the internal locking ring securing the tire to the bead from the inside. Each has a removable hex/rotor for easy mounting and scale points. Each is ultrasonic finished for a super clean bare aluminum look.
