So I broke one of my rear rims on Saturday while jumping my Kraton. It didn't surprise me much as I landed it at a 45 degree angle directly on the left rear tire from about 10 feet up. I regued the original tire into a proline desperado rim that I had and moved on.
So this evening I'm out jumping at the same spot (I didn't learn the first time) and this time I landed all my jumps correctly and while I was driving back to line up for the next round, my other back rim rolls away from the truck... Oh well I still have one more rim for that tire.

Is this a common issue with this truck? I haven't seemed to read much on the Kraton with cracking rims. Either way I'll probably be ordering myself a couple sets of proline badlands in the next couple weeks.
Enjoy the pic of the rim... Everyone likes carnage pics

Hi

If the rims are anything like the ones on my raider then they are more then likely a type of composite brittle plastic.

If you go with the Proline Badlands, I'm sure you'll like them a lot better.
