    since they make beadlock kits for aluminum wheels, i was wondering if anybody ever thought bout beadlocking H2's? im having a hard time picturing if they would look good or not. i do like the look of the H2's on k5's but im thinkin the next set of rims id get id really like to beadlock. since 17" tires are now all over the place, i dont really see that much of a need to stick with my current 15's on my next set of tires.

    what do you guys think?

    i really like the looks of the H2's. you can get a set of H2's usually for $200 and then get them beadlocked. i think that would be cheaper than buying beadlock rims? how much did they set you back for the set? there are some really cool ones out there, but everytime i look, the price seems to get rediculous:doah:

    Uh, Stauns are an internal double beadlock that uses your existing wheel. I paid $600 for mine, and already had the rims i wanted to run. Best part about them is that whenever anybody sees them, they dont know you are running beadlocks.

    Does anyone know what alloy thr H2 wheels are? My son bought a set of the beadlock kits from Ballistic, and he wants me to weld them on when he comes home for thanksgiving. I'm trying to decide which filler rod to use, but I don't know what alloy the wheels are. Any input would be appreciated.
