Anyone here running TrailReady beadlocks and Cooper STT tires?

Just curious as to whether the thick bead on the Cooper STT tires (I have 37x1250x17) is compatible with the lock ring on the Trail Ready beadlock wheels.

I had ATX Slabs with Goodyear MT/R Kevlars and when I switched to the Coopers, the bead on the tires was simply too thick to work with the lock ring on those wheels. I ended up parting ways with the wheels for that reason.

The TrailReady HD17 has caught my eye and I'm thinking seriously about going that route soon.

2012 JKU Rubicon - Crush Orange, with stuff.
2011 Ford Raptor F150 SuperCrew - Tuxedo Black, with stuff.

They should work fine and if need be they offer a bead ring spacer for a few bucks to compensate for a thicker bead.
