    Want to know what type of sealant I should use for beadlock wheels? Just don't want to have any problems with leaks. I have 15x14 eaton beadlocks and I'm mounting 39'' Boggers.

    Thanks

    I have had my champion beadlocks for over a year with no leaks and used no sealant. I have heard of people using RTV blue to prevent leaks.

    Rocko,
    First of all Good Luck with your interview! I'm not too far from the river I live on the south side of town. How long is you stay in S.A.? The reason I ask is that we're going to the Den here in S.A. to do some wheeling Sunday. Will you be up here in your K5? If you are then join us. I'll be tied up Saturday, my sister is moving that day. Let me know about Sunday.

    Later

    Thanks Steve, I think that I'm going to try the RVT. I would hate to mount these tires and start to have problems. 39s are not an easy tire to work with and to do it twice... forget about it.

    Thanks
