    i bought some 39.5 boggers so i'm goin with 16.5 wheels. i'd like to use hummer wheels, but there to skinny and i'm to cheap to have the offset fixed and have them widened($400 just for the wheels). i was thinking about buying enough beadlock kits to do the inside and outside. the bart kits are about $50 a kit so it'd be about $400. has anyone done this? any regrets? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    <font color="green"> Not sure if you would be able to get the beadlocks over the brakes on the inside. Seems like it would be a real PITA to me. $600 for a set of custom hummer wheels was worth it to me. I know that they'll work and not leak and I didn't have to do any funky stuff to the brakes. </font color>

    Talk to Scott @ Rockstomper. He sells weld on beadlock kits for cheap, and he is one of the nicest guys I have met.

    USA6x6 has them for 165 each with all the options including custom centers. But Shaggy and I along with some others got a group deal together for 150 each, so 150 x 4 = 600. That price includes shipping /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif.

    Lock the outside and if the inside lock won't fit, leave it alone. I don't see much problem losing the inside bead.
