This is a pack of four RC4WD Stamped Steel 1.0" Stock Beadlock Wheels in Black color, intended for the RC4WD 1/18 Gelande II, but can also be used with the Axial SCX24. These wheels fit a 7mm hex.
- These wheels have a small offset (few mm's per side), pushing the wheels wider than the stock width. It is minor, but it is there.
- These wheels should be used with RC4WD 1.0" Tires; Axial tires will probably not work.

My issue is the screw location. Using RC4WD tires on the wheels, I was unable to get the screws aligned and tightened. This was a combo of the tires pushing out the distance too much to get screw grip on the threads, but also the alignment was impossible for me. Others may be better than I, but I moved on and have not used the wheels. RC4WD tires are awesome, but I would not recommend these wheels on the low end of their line.
I bought these for my SCX24 and have had a mostly-positive experience with them, but not all has been smooth sailing. Modification of the standard plastic SCX24 hubs is required for these to be able to work (be it by filing down the hubs, or hammering them into the wheel lugs) and the Hot Racing Brass 7mm Hex Hubs may as well not even fit, as they aren’t worth modifying to get them to fit, as the wheels already weigh enough. It’s not a huge issue, just an inconvenience.
Disassembly, tire installation and reassembly, however, are. Regardless of what micro crawler you are running, from the SCX24 to the 1/18 RC4WD Gelande II; disassembly, tire installation and reassembly are incredibly difficult on these wheels if you do not know what you are doing and there are no instructions on how to do it included with the wheels.
My recommendation is to use the ‘paperclip’ method (Youtube it for detail), which involves only unscrewing two of the six screws and then threading a paperclip (bent into a U-shape) through said two holes, before completely disassembling the wheel.
Overall, however, the wheels are well-built, sturdy, heavy, look fantastic and has some of the best tire variety on the market. SCX24 owners, know you will lose a little bit of ride height, but the tire designs and tire compounds available for these wheels by RC4WD are some of the best on the market and that more than makes up for it.
