It takes a long time to properly tighten beadlocks so don't rush through it. Slowly cinch them down with a ratchet in a crisscross pattern, then to 10 lb-ft in a crisscross pattern, and finally to 15 lb-ft in a crisscross pattern. It's better to tighten only a little at a time rather than all at once. This helps to make sure the beadlock ring sits flush with the wheel.
