Rockcrawling and wheel damage go hand in hand. Professional rockcrawlers know this. That's why so many competition rigs have protective bead locks like the ones shown here. With this arrangement, very little damage can result from direct wheel-to-rock impact. A super-thick outer bead-lock ring protects the recessed bolt heads and prevents anything from reaching the face of the wheel.
