Default Heavy duty wheels

I did the maiden flight last night of my Bud Nosen Cessna 310. I couldn't taxi the plane because the main wheels simply couldn't handle the weight when trying to turn. They would roll right off the the rims. These are good Dubro 4" tires. Well, good for smaller/lighter planes anyway. What can I use that will handle the 32 pounds of this twin engine hot rod?? Thanks for your advice!!

They would roll right off the the rims.
You might try rubber cement to hold the wheels on the rims.

Try these, the S852 aluminum hub screws through the center of the tire. No chance of the tire rolling off the rim.

If your feeling rich, try Darrell or Glennis, they both make high quality scale wheels.
