    You will need the runflats or similar to make them function as double beadlock wheels. So you can get the rubber runflats, mag runflats or the inserts that USA6x6/Stazworks sale to have double beadlocks.

    I've bought my O'rings for mine through Rank & File. I have the number somewhere, but will have to dig for it. You might try a google search to see if they have a web site.

    Pretty much what he said. They won't function, hold air or hold the bead without O-rings (which should be with them) and the runflats (or an insert that replaces the runflats). The 2 pieces of the wheel sandwich the tire on each side of the runflat or insert to make the bead sealed & locked.

    IIRC the nuts are 5/8" NF stovers. you can buy those just about anywhere, nothing special.

    The rim will function like a normal 16.5" rim with out the insert. You would still need orings to seal the 2 halves together. Without an insert there will be NO beadlock function.

    $50 each is a good price on the 12-bolt H1s. I have seen them commanly priced at about $100 each.
