    bake the tires in your oven for about 7 to 10 minutes or use the acetone vapor method but that takes a few days

    I've had good success with boiling them, and that's what I have tried to do for the last hour
    however

    The rubber gel glue I used this time just will not slip, not even in 100 degree C water
    I rear on the back of the box that it can withstand temps from -20c to +120c ....Damn !!!!

    Looks like I need to get a new set of 2,2" switch tyres for the front
    I might get a 2nd set for the rear

    I have a set of 2,2" wide AE front wheels than I'll use with the Jato hubs
    And I made new front spindles to match


    Also thinking about making my own 1" wide beadlock front wheels for the Jato front

    Any thoughts ?

    if you bake the tires the dry heat will turn the glue back to to its liquid form and harden up making it brittle.i put them in at 350f to 400f degrees F
    for the custom front wheels. I belive you should start with a tempelt like a style of bead lock you want. like start with a dish wheel of some sort or a different style rim and see if you can fabircate a working bead lock on it

    Regarding beadlock wheels
    I do have Tamiya and Associated 3 piece wheels
    and it's something like that I'm thinking about

    My idea is to perhaps make
    3 piece 2,2" wheels, 1" wide front and 1,5" wide rear
    perhaps with a center hub so I can use either bearings or 12mm hex mount

    thats a nice adaption for the wheels. but the tires on the left side are backwards so you know the tread is reversed.

    That was the first thing I noticed too ...!!!
    However
    Pre-mounted.........!!!!!! They didn't even bother making 2 tyre molds ..but hey they wear real cheap
    and I didn't want to drill out a set of $$$$ wheels it it didn't work
