Not All Beadlocks Are Created Equal

Beadlock Battle

Beadlock wheels are a popular upgrade, but all too often the only factors people consider are price and aesthetics. This style of wheel clamps the tire bead to the wheel to keep it from coming off in the low-pressure situations that are common in off-road terrain such as rocks, sand, and snow.

Other than that basic function, the various beadlock wheels on the market have a surprising number of different features. We have run nearly every beadlock out there and they all have certain elements that we are fond of, but there’s no perfect wheel. There might be a perfect wheel for your application though, particularly if you consider more than just price and appearance.
