Weld on Beadlocks? (15th Dec 09 at 8:01pm UTC)
I was looking at the weld on bealock kits. I see them for around $250. not bad compared to the cost of buying beadlock wheels. I wont be ready to do it for a while since I think getting my rig geared and locked is higher priority, but I'm just curious if any of you have done a weld on kit and if you have an opinion of them

They are a good deal. I like the ones Ruff stuff sells, because they come with the anti coning material. I prefer steel wheel beadlocks al together beacuse you can beat a steel wheel back out but an aluminum wheel cracks. I have never personally run the weld on style locks but have seen alot used and they seem to work great.

Do what you gotta do!

Cool. I cant see any problem with them. Just seems like a great way to save some cash.

You have to earn bead lock. Get your rig done and wheel hard enough to need them before you try to look cool. I run my tires at 3-4 psi and have only blown a bead once or twice. I need them now because my rims keep spinning in the tires. Go wheeling, then worry about bead locks...

I know. Like I said, I have a long ways to go before I'll be doing it. I was just curious about them.

I have the ruff stuff DIY beadlocks. Weld them on and dont worry about it. Dont forget to glue on your inner bead with dow corning 832. You can get it at McMaster-Carr.

I was wondering the same thing. I had to make my own when we did Mkeys beadlocks...
