It is important to remove the valve stem core before you even think about removing the beadlock bolts. Once the stem core is removed and the tire stops whistling, it’s time to pull the beadlock bolts. If you don’t have a beadlock wheel, move right along to the next step after pulling the valve core. We just zoom the bolts out with an air-operated impact or air ratchet. With the bolts out, the rings should come right off. If not, insert a pry bar through the back of the wheel and give the ring a light tap.
