The Deadbolt gets some new tires (AUSTAR AX-5020)

So I bought some Chinese ripoffs on Ebay. I don't usually like to buy ripoffs but in this case I didn't realize that they were ripoffs until after I bought them.

I was looking for 120mm tires with a nice tread pattern to replace the RC4WD Super Swampers that I was running. So when I saw these AUSTAR AX-5020 tires I was impressed by the look.

And I really liked the look of the rims they were on. $30 for a set of 4, I couldn't say no. (Amazon has them for about $38 Click Here)
After I bought them I was looking around and found that the tires are copies of the new Proline Hyrax 1.9 tires and the rims are copies of Gmade's NR-02 wheel. Needless to say I saved a crap load of money buying the Chinese versions.
