good question...only thing I have found close is Mickey Thompson has the classic lock IIs out now in 16s (it's in the recent 4 wheel parts magazine). Have been looking for about a year now between beadlocks or the MT IIs but have 315x12.5x16s and only thing I can find in 16s are regular alloys and steelies.

Allied has 16" bead-locks, I am running them on my YJ crawler.

chances are you will need to special order your bolt pattern or run adapters

any particular reason why 16" beadlocks are so rare? i dont really want to run 17" because i would just rather have more rubber than wheel. and you know how 15" are on the JK

How are 15's on the JK ?

I run 15's for the purpose of more sidewall... zero fitment, rubbing or any other issues with my racelines or pro comps !

15"s are hit or miss on JK's. I run 16" for more sidewall as well

Not very many tire choices for 16's, just something else to consider.

What's hit or miss.... Rubbing on caliper ?

Can't you send almost any wheel out to Champion to have them made into beadlocks? That might be another option for you.

One inch of wheel is a 1/2 inch on the top and the bottom. Is it worth the hassle and the limited selection of wheels/tires?
