I know there are a few on here running them....whats your take on them? If you had to do it again, would you go with them? Any major problems?

With 37's it is like 150lbs a tire...how is that comparable to other beadlocks? Weight that noticeable?

thanks guys....thinking about going this route in the new year.....

you don't get stuck re-torqing eleventybillion bolts all the time

you get a true double beadlock

don't run the mag insert, you want to run the rubber or the plastic one


i'm a fan of them.

If you are looking for street legal beadlocks like the HUMVEE wheels then check these out:

PVC inserts are where it is at. They allow you to wheel with zero psi. Pull your cores if you would like and you will not hit anything inside the tire. The same can not be said for any runflat be it rubber or Mag. However runflats were for people at war and pvc inserts are for wheelers, people that plan on airing down. Both make them DOUBLE beadlocks :smokin:

While there are other cool wheels out there they are not in the ballpark for the same money. This style of wheel has been on H1's for 30 years now. Even the new stuff they still run the same design, split wheel with an insert making them a double beadlock. They have been tested, and tested and passed. Good enough for us to put our men out there to fight on, then they are good enough for me to wheel with:grinpimp:

Another thing that sets them apart from others is the fact that a rock ring can be added. This ring when welded in allows you to air down to zero psi. Beat the snot out of your wheel and not bend the lip.

Ya i'm aware why there's inserts

the reason i mentioned rubber is it's more easily cut down than the mag insert. the mag can be but it's a pain.

the mag insert sends some really cool sparks when you're cutting it though :D

By law I have to tell everyone they are for off road use only. However. I can tell you that (guessing at exact number) 90% of my customers run our wheels on their DD.

Give us a call if you have any questions

It's hard to find a wheel and a 37" tire for 189 per corner wheel/Tire combo


Take care,

Todd

i just got the rims and tires from trail worthy they are amazing. they drive great on the road and are great off road. you can get amazing grip when u air down to like 8 psi. i thought they would not grip as well as they would but they do. i know the tread is siuppose to last for a long time. yes u are stuck to 16.5 tires but when u can get great 37 inch tires for $75 a tire why would u go with anything else. they are strong tires too. there was a few times this weekend i thought i should of tore my tires up but not even a scratch. at $75 a tire i am no longer scared of blowing a tire out either. as far as balancing a bunch of air soft BB's and you are in business not to mention mounting and unmounting are a easy as hell also.

8 PSI and a beadlock wheel? Dude, I run 8 PSI on 15x8 steelies with a 12.50 tire and have yet to break a bead in 3 years. Run 0-3 PSI, why you got the damn beadlocks!!

+1 on the single-digit tire pressures. The traction is unbelievable!

Also, be careful with PVC inserts. PVC gets brittle when it gets cold. When an insert splits, nothing is going to keep the death wobble away. My friend had one split and even with full hydro steering, the wheels looked like they were falling off. He swapped over to UHMWPE with no problems, and I used them on mine too. UHMWPE inserts are the way to go.

Unless the wheel says on it "not for highway use", "offroad use only" or something similar to that they are legal to run in PA by inspection law. Not sure about other states.

Interco actually makes a decent amount of tires in a 16.5" wheel size. So if you want to go bigger than 37 you can. For instance you can get an IROK bias-ply in 42x14R16.5LT or 39.5x13.5R16.5LT.

Yes Sir. 37" Goodyears. I've run them on all of my own rigs that they will fit on. They run down the road great. Wear like steel. I sell them for 75ea. If you jack one up it's not as big of a deal as jacking up a $300 tire.

The psi I run depends on A. How much I like my tires and B. what I am wheeling. Around here the rocks are not nice to your tires or side walls. If you run Zero Psi you either have the money to replace a lot of tires or don't like your tires and want a reason to buy new ones:D
