    That are not beadlocks, have a set of 36 x 14 x 16.5 Swamper radial tires I got as part of a trade no wheels /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif. Considering/forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif running them since they have not sold, just not sure about running non-beadlock 16.5 wheels will they hold up on the AZ rock trails? Also need a set of cheap 6-lug wheels /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif,if I do run them, if any one has a set? Thanks Jay

    What did you want for the tires, and how much tread? BTW I wouldnt run 16.5s without beadlocks, unless you run full psi.

    I have run 16.5's at about 12 PSI on the rocks. No beads off yet.

    Am I correct in reading that you are looking for 16.5 wheels in a 6 lug?? I am not aware that they exist except from a custom wheel builder.
