    what PSI can you comfortably run on your h2 rims and what size are they (the tires) im looking at running the same setup (if they are 40"s)

    thanks

    He's running Staun internal beadlocks, so he can go as low as he wants. He's running 42" IROKs.

    James Cramer is running the H2s with no beadlocks and I think that he was down into the single digits and still had good bead retention with 42's.

    If not single digits he was real low in the double digits. I thought they worked well from the little bit I saw of his before he moved.

    Makes me wonder why I have beadlocks. I guess I did go to 4psi or so on Hells Revenge at BB05 but it really felt too low.
    We sell the Stauns and I can give you some pointers on putting them in the H2 wheels.

    Yup, since we tried them and they work well, we might as well sell them.

    I think there are some traction advantages to the stauns too.
    1: Locking both beads to the wheel keeps the tire true to the wheel on both sides which has to help.
    2: the runflat effect from the liner extending up the sidewall a couple inches basically makes the sidewall shorter and gives less squirm/sidewall deflection at lower tire pressures. Basically it seems to deform in the direction of travel to give more contact patch and grab but still gives decent steering response and lateral support.

    The only drawback is lack of wheel protection.
