Maybe y'all can enlighten me. So when I got my Slabs about a week ago, there were no beadlock bolts or inserts in in any of the wheel boxes or a separate hardware box. Called vendor and he got a box of bolts/inserts sent, which arrived today. Box has a ziplock each of bolts and inserts. No instructions. To me, it doesn't look like OEM packaging. So here are my questions:
1. What's the proper way to set the inserts into the wheel? From top or bottom?
2. What tool do you use to do this? None in box? Is there a torque spec for the inserts themselves?
3. It looks like red locktite is on all the inserts threads. Is that what you had or did my inserts come out of the used parts bin? (I'm fine with that as long as they all "work").
4. How easy did your inserts thread into the wheel? I'm asking because, because just "testing" one by hand I get about 1/2 rotation from top (those slots in the inserts facing upwards) before it stops. Almost looks like too big of an insert but maybe they are suppose to be really tight fits and you elbow it in with a tool.
I question forcing it any further until I get some feedback.
