    Looking around, seeing place in Austraila but not a US company... Looking for prices and sizes. I'm only seeing 15x10 setups at $198 each.

    Anyone?

    See the pink, thats a tube, the green is a non-streching material. you slide this inside the tire when you putting it on, put in a second valve stem (for the tube). Mount and inflate your tire, then blow up the tube, the green keeps the tube from expanding holding tube in and making buldge out holding both beads tight on the rim. Internal (pnematic (sp?)) beadlock. kert Bolden ran/runs them on his K5/jimmy, looks cool with the two valve stems, I like them because I'm lazy and dont want to mess with 100 some odd little bolts /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    There is a non-US company with a distributor here in the states that makes something like that. I think the name is something like "Tire Lok", I've seen references to them either here or on Pirate.

    Found it! Well sort of... the company / product is called "Tireloc", it's a Swedish company. Most of the related links I found on Google are dead though, might be a bad sign.

    JD's Off Road used to carry them but there's no mention on their site anymore. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Too bad they don't list any prices or any other information on the distributors web sites. Seems to be a pretty sweet set up.

    I sent an email about a price list. They say you have to have a brick and mortar store to be a distributor or I was going to see about being a distributor /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    yeah, i sent Steve a PM once saying that he oughta see about becoming a distributor for these... since I think a LOT of people here would be interested in them and he could score some serious $ considering there arent ANY us-based distributors for these things. Way i figure, he could have them shipped via surface (slow, but hella cheap compared to air!) and after the currency conversion (prices on the www are is aussie dollars!) he could sell em pretty inexpensively. We could all win. He never responded to the PM tho, so I guess he isn't interested. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
