This is something new that we haven’t really done on this channel, but we’d like to do more of now that there’s a lot more new products coming out for the scx 24, so for our first review, we’re going to review these wheels by prefontaine designs before we Get started i want to just take a minute to talk about the packaging that they come in. These come in boxes like full size wheels and if you’ll look right here, if you can tell in the video they even come with 24 scale ups labels to make them look like real wheels. Oh, i can’t really tell yeah. You have to look really close but that’s what they are so let’s open these wheels and see what they look like colin’s opening up these wheels for us all right, so let’s take a look. This is actually the back of the wheel, so we’re just going to take a little close look at these wheels. They are 3d printed plastic um one piece wheels. Sorry we’re, shooting this video outside the lighting in our studio. Doesn’T really show off the great color of these wheels, so i figured outside in the sunlight would be the best place to do it, so there may be some cars or some birds or something here in the background i’m. Sorry about that they’re, 3d printed plastic. They are vented, come potete vedere, um i’ve seen a lot of 3d printed wheels and most of them look okay, but these the detail on these is just so much greater than anything that i’ve seen on anything else.
I don’t know anything about 3d printing. So i don’t know if it’s a different printer different material, quello che è, but these are just a step above everything else. They do have the standard. Seven millimeter hex i’ve already tried these on and they do fit just fine one thing: i’ll i’ll show you in just a second is about wheel weights. ok, so i’ve got a wheel weight here. This is just one of the generic wheel: weights off ebay, but it’s made to fit inside the stock. Um axial kmc machete wheels and this one does fit in there i’m, non gon na. You have to kind of tap it back out. Quindi sono, not gon na put it all the way in uh, but on these wheels the outside diameter. I don’t know if you can see right here. The outside diameter is a little bigger, so these weights don’t fit that snug and they don’t quite fit around the hex. I think you could probably force them on or do a little bit of sanding and make them work, but i just want to point this out right off the bat um yeah to me not really a big deal. ok, so we have mounted up some different tires on these wheels just to see how well they mount up uh. I did some. I let column do some uh. How hard were they to mount? It was very easy. What was it like? Era come, like putting lego tires together.
Sì, it wasn’t very hard at all wasn’t. They went on pretty easily and they fit pretty well um i’m going to show you these are rock locks. The bead fits on there pretty well um. I haven’t tried running these. Yet i don’t know if they need to be glued, so we’ll see when the time comes. Umm. These are the bfgoodrich kr3, i believe the the wider ones i can’t i’m. Siamo spiacenti, i can’t remember which one they are but uh they’re the widest tires that i have that i and they fit on here. Just fine. These are the the swampers and, as if you’ve ever tried to mount these, you know the beads kind of weird on those, but they went on just fine scramblers and these again have a weird bead. The beads are really thin and they went on okay, i don’t know if they would um. I don’t know how well these would hold without gluing but the rest of them. They feel pretty firm on there. So i think they’ll be just fine without gluing them, but uh we’re going to do it when we do our wheel test we’re going to use these wheels for it. Sono. Siamo spiacenti, when we do our tire test, we’re going to use these wheels for it, so we’re going to see how they do when the time comes all right. ok, so we went ahead and just mounted these up on colin’s truck. I think they look buddy yeah.
I think they look really nice um, i think the the design and the color sorry car driving by um. I think the design and the color look really great on this. I think they’ll look great on any vehicle that you decide to put them on. Do you think it would look good on your truck? I think so i may have to order another pair for mine. What do you think yeah, oh and also a new yeah that’s right? We do. We did order a new um scx24 that will be here soon and we’re going to leave completely stock for now to do our tire testing with a red dead bulb, Così, ok, so until next time uh. Thank you guys for watching.
