    Looking at getting some 15" beadlocks, not sure if I want MRT or Allied wheels. I am not sure where to order them or who has the best price? Anyone have a suggestion?

    good idea, but I HATE the wheels I have now and I am swapping from 10 bolts to D60 and 14 bolt, so the ones I have now wouldn't work anyway:1zhelp:

    1 ton axles wont fit 15 inch rims with out a lot of grinding on the brake calapers, why dont you look into larger rim sizes?

    yeah the difference between 15" and 17" rims is not much at all. Go with 16s or 17s.

    I really think grinding on a brake caliper is a really bad idea, thats just my opinion though

    That’s the main reason I went with the 15”.

    When I was shopping around for the Allied’s the cheapest place I found believe it or not was Discount Tire. I asked about them for SNG’s when I was getting a tire fixed and they spit out a number I liked. It’s been a while since I was looking so I don’t remember the price they gave but it wouldn’t hurt to call one up and see what they say.

    Local Discount tire wants $189 bucks for a 15X10 allied beadlock wheel. That seems a little high, am I wrong?:confused:

    The price isn't to bad considering that Allied is a well known brand. If you are going to stick with the 15" rims you can get a 2.5" backspacing and it will clear the calipers. Looks kinda funny IMO.

    I found some Eaton beadlocks from National tire for 150 bucks a piece for 15x12's.

    Are there only 3 manufacturers of beadlocks, the only ones I have heard of are allied, MRT, and I guess, now, Eaton?

    I take it you haven't looked in a 4x4 mag in the last 5 years. Trailready makes 'em too, and I haven't heard anything bad about them. If you want 17s, you might try walker's.
