    If you put 44's on it, you won't fit in the garage anymore!

    And I'll have to redo the gif!

    A question since I've never had or seen beadlocks up close; it the tire sandwiched between the 2 plates or does the outside plate just provide a bigger area keeping the tire from skipping off? I haven't seen a closeup pic or one during the install

    somewhere there is a good pic on how it works... the tire bead gets "locked" or squished between the 2 rings. on ring is welded on to the rim, the other ring is bolted to the other... so the bead gets sandwhiched inbetween them to stay in
