Bead Lockdown

Pro Comp introduces the new Series 75 Trilogy race beadlock wheel. It is said to be engineered to be a full 27 percent stronger than Pro Comp’s previous competition wheel. The wheel features eight spokes and a completely redesigned bead ring, which has doubled in thickness and is forged from T-6061 aircraft-grade aluminum. The beadlock ring is held in place by fully countersunk Grade 8 bolts, which are protected from rocks, impacts, and abuse. Nord-Lock wedge-locking washers ensure that the ring hardware stays properly torqued. The new ring uses a specialized 45-degree diamond knurl pattern and the bead area of the wheel features Pro Comp’s Infini-Grip figure eight pattern. The Trilogy race beadlock wheel is available in 17x9 with a Satin Black or Super Machined finish in popular 5-, 6-, and 8-lug bolt patterns. Information: Pro Comp, 800/776-0767, procompusa.com
