I have been getting a lot of questions lately asking about the XR10 beadlock wheels. Most people are wondering what the difference is in offset compared to our old wheels. So, for this round of “Snapshots” I will be covering the wheels that are in the new XR10 kit from Axial.
The new wheels are true beadlocks just like our crawler wheels in the past, but this time there are only 6 screws holding everything together. So now tuning foams and changing wheel weights is easier then it ever has been. Here you can see all the components that make up each wheel. The XR10 wheels are compatible with Vanquish Products patented wheel weight systems too.
Here is a picture showing the complete assembled wheel with the Vanquish weights installed. Notice the plastic weight retainer that is integrated into the wheels.
Here you can see the offset difference between our old AX10 wheels and the new XR10 wheels. The XR10 wheels measure about 3/4″ from the back of the inner bead seat to the backside of the wheel hex. The AX10 wheels measure just under a 1/4″. So, there is just over a 1/2″ of offset difference between the 2 wheels. Overall width of the 2 wheels is very similar.
That does it for the wheels. Keep an eye out for more sneak peeks soon.
