I am going to have some new beadlock rings made for my 17" method 105 wheels. Does anyone have the bolt pattern information for the beadlock ring floating around?

I also have them, I can measure the distance from bolt to bolt....There's 24 total per ring, I think. Can't you also measure from bolt to bolt to get the pattern?

I just need the distance from center to center of 2 bolts that are 180 degrees across from one another and the quantity. I can measure one as well but I would have to go take it apart.

24 bolts total, 16 1/8 across the wheel from center of bolt to center of bolt and 2 1/8 from center of bolt to center of bolt going around the ring

Like a boss! I am going to be throwing my brain at autocad making a few designs and picking one to send off to a guy who will cut them out of 3/16" or 1/4" steel for $35 each.

How accurate do you think that 16, 1/8" measurement is?

Auto cad will evenly space them for me so I'm not so concerned with the distance between each one.

Remeasured again and again and 16 1/4 is the right measurement, I was one bolt off last time. Are you having these made so you don't to use the stupid split spacers? If so I'm in! I have 2 wheels that have air leaks no matter what I do because of that spacer ring.

That's weird, I use the rings and I haven't put air in them since I filled them up.

I am going to have some rings made to just switch it up. These are beadlocks and they don't even look like it, lol.

I've been playing around on auto cad this afternoon and I think I made something cool. Here is an example of some of the rings the guy makes

I'm digging the rings so far! But, what about the bolt heads getting chewed up?

Thats just an example of something that he has done before. I made my own design that he has not cut yet. It looks similar but fits the wheel better. You either countersink the bolt holes and use countersunk head bolts OR you use the little domes that help deflect the pressure off of the head.

Example:

NICE! looking forward to seeing the final product. You can customize different shapes, right?
I can do whatever. As long as you have the basics there which are the bolt pattern and the over all OD the rest can look like whatever you want.

I finally got my 2 to stop leaking air..... I like the row of small holes because that will let water drain out, instead of big circle, if you could cut out a Texas symbol or a longhorn; I would be a buyer for sure!

Update, just got one cut and it's being sent to me today. If all fits well and I don't need to adjust my drawing I'm getting 4 more cut. These are 1/4" and cost me $35 each.




Gonna look bad ass on these....

Looks shitty. Send to me and you cover shipping to get them out of your garage. jk.

I'm not a fan of cutting the big circle down (towards the center). Do they line up with the slots in the wheels themselves?

I am not either, I thought this was a decent compromise.

The big holes can or they can be exactly in-between. I though it looked worse when it was straight on.
