They are offered both ways, but the beadlocks are the XD229.

The beadlocks look like the pics in my link below.

I can do $1800 shipped on a set of 5 if you're looking for new!

These things are awesome and balanced really nicely with 37" Toyo MT's, I am very happy with mine.

I had clicked, it didn't seem to open with pics for me, just text.

I am interested in the non beadlock version.

That is the XD 128. They are less expensive by a good bit because they are not beadlocks.

This is a link to the three color options:

Yes sir! Are you wanting 17s?

Beadlocks aren't bad. Just takes patience, a little muscle, and a lot of turns on the ole torque wrench.
