Dirty life wheels on!

Got my new Duel tech Dirty life DT1 wheels on yesterday and trying the 35/12.5/17 Comforser cf3000 mud tires. Great combo and drives fantastic. Wheels have a 4.5 offset and I have them mounted non beadlock for now. The nice thing about these wheels is i can also mount them bead lock!! Sick!! BTW I have a 6spd 3.73 gears and everything drives very close to the 33 duratecs I had on. i really cant tell to much difference at all in road handling and pickup. I think maybe im reving a couple hundred more rpms before gear changes thats about it. These tires are very very very affordable and really really GREAT!! haha Cant say a bad thing about them. 205 Canadian for 35,s!!! You dudes and gals in the states pay even way less and they are well worth it!! The nice thing about them is size also. They are a smallish 35. Measure more like a 34 so even with 3.73 gears they are fine without regearing! Anyway am so happy with how the combo turned out i thought i would post a few pics and say what i think.

very handsome wheel!
I admit to not understanding why you would opt to not lock the bead down but to -each-their-own? You could take the tires into single digit psi and not worry at all...


what does one of the wheels weigh ,if you do not mnd me asking.
Not with tire; just by itself.
I like the look of them.

In my hurry to just get them on I never weighed them i was going to but just was in a rush! haha i will bead them down the road. They have 2 different rings as options for them. There a new style and very very affordable for actual bead locks. It is cool you can have it both ways with them though. I never ordered the bead lock ring with the wheel. Thats the next purchase. About 80 bucks a wheel. The ring on there right now is a polly ring just to hold the bolts there when mounted regular. The wheel didnt seem overly heavy really. i wouldn't want to guess though. I did mount them myself sitting on a short stool just jacked up in the garage so not terrible. ive had wheels i needed help with in the past. haha Hears a link to an explanation what duel tech is and some pics of some of the rings for beading them and color options. they are a sexy looking wheel for sure thanks. Im happy!! :] https://www.dirtylifewheels.com/dualtek/
