    did you see the thread on pirate about the guy who made aluminum beadlocks for his H2 rims?
    he has the CAD design file free for download. Only problem is they are $$$.

    Where'd you find them at? US Wheel used to have inexpensive 17" wheels but the jump in steel prices seems to have pushed the wheels up in price by about $15.
