If you want the serious off-road look of a beadlock without the hassle, several companies make simulated beadlocks. While we are usually apprehensive about anything just for appearance's sake, even these have a useful benefit off-road: The outer ring adds protection for the wheel lip and tire against trail debris. You can add an optional steel simulated beadlock ring from Rugged Ridge wheels (shown) by removing the button head screws supplied with the wheels and replacing them with longer bolts supplied with the ring.
