    I know most beadlocks are not street legal in my state, It may be the same nationwide. I've heard of a new design that will be, but until then does anyone know if hummer beadlocks are street legal? Didn't the first civilian hummers have them? I ask cause www.usa6x6.com has them recentered for $185 and up. thanks in advance.

    I believe that the Hummer Beadlocks are only DOT legal because of the runflats.
