I don't think either one would be in my top 3 picks, why are they your top two? Are they available in 3.5" back spacing?

Some build info here:

Both are Available in 3.5in Back Space. I'm open to any Quality 17in Beadlock where I don't have to run spacers. I'm still running stock wheels
with Spider Trax Spacers, It's worked for about 3 years now. Just looking to inch a step more off road Biased with 37's and Beadlocks.

Can you get Trail Ready yet? They lost their U.S. foundry and are now made in China (unless you go forged)

I have run Walkers and Methods. I love both.

Was bummed to hear - after the fact - about TR losing their American foundry (did they partner with American Eagle?). At least TR's forged wheels are still done in the States, and I think Innov8 does forged deadlocks and non-deadlock wheels here. I thought B.A.D. wheels were done in the U.S. but I am not sure if they are still around?

This was the latest info from TR back in 2/19:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/4451460-post131.html

Innov8's website says they are US made. Not sure about B.A.D.

Its important to note that forged beadlocks are usually 2x + the price of a cast beadlock so regardless of being made in the US or not, usually puts them out of most people's conversations because of price.

I wouldn't worry about the FlowFormed TR's being cast in Taiwan. They're still going to be a quality wheel.
