I've finally decided that I'm going to get a set of Walker Evans wheels for my JK. I've been having trouble justifying the cost and looking for a less expensive wheel that I liked, but I've decided that if I don't get these wheels I'll wish I had. Now I have to decide if I should get the street wheels or the beadlocks. I've done a lot of searching and am concerned about the fact that they're not D.O.T. approved. I've read where if there's an accident, you could be held liable if you have non D.O.T. approved wheels. Can anyone tell me why they aren't approved? What's different about the AEV wheels that they have been D.O.T approved but the Walker Evans aren't? Has anybody ever heard of a beadlock wheel failure that has or could have caused an accident? Has anyone ever been ticketed for having beadlocks? I'm in Colorado, and see a lot of modified Jeeps on the road with beadlocks. If there is an accident and it turns out that a beadlock failure caused it could the insurance company refuse to cover it? I'm leaning toward the street wheels because of all of these questions, but could get the beadlocks for less than $100 more for a set of 5.
