Crawler Innovations is happy to bring another new product to the RC Crawling market. The 6 Bolt Performance Wheel is a glue on wheel with a 2.2" bead size, is 1.50" wide, and is designed to be used with Vanquish Products SLW hubs. The Axial Trail Ready plastic hubs also fit these wheels for the weight conscious comp crawler. 12 Stainless Steel Button Head hardware included. The is the lightest weight 2.2 competition wheel / rim on the market. These wheels really shine in the U4RC genre of rc racing. The plastic combined with the aluminum hex create a basher and racer friendly combo. The plastic wheel will flex on hard impacts while the aluminum hex prevents stripping.
The 1.50" width is the factory width or standard for 2.2" rim width. The wider rim allows for the tire to be mounted as it was cast/made, not stretching or forcing the tire into a different profile. Combined with the proper foam set up, these wider wheels provide consistent control and high performance. In general, wider Vanquish Products SLW hubs are used with this rim width, such as the 600, 725, or 850 SLW hub. Since the face of the 6 bolt wheel is nearly flush, there is more back spacing on the rim. The 6 bolt was designed with the nearly flush face to prevent obstacles from catching a wide front rim lip on course.
Sold in a pair.
The 6 Bolt 1.50" Performance Wheel itself is just under 18 grams.

I like using these on my wraith with .225 hubs to give a narrow width to give some more room to get through gates. And the light weight over a bead lock wheel takes weight off the drive line and overall weight of the vehicle.

Kudos to the designer!!!
I keep burning through plastic hubs due to running my Yeti on 3s power and I really like the simplicity of glued on tires... So I'm super happy with these wheels. I pop on metal hubs, glue my tires on and I'm back to bashing. The cost is perfect too.
It would be cool if they made an even wider wheel to fit 2.8 tires. I'd buy them too.
