    Are you talking about PVC inserts for double beadlocks? If so, its not easy, but you gotta just pry each half into the tire, then screw them together. Just got done putting the inserts in my tires the other day (actually my bro and dad did it for me lol), big job.

    Yeah definitely dont want to do it again anytime soon!! Had to pinch em into an oval shape with a ratchet strap, work em past the bead, undo the strap, use the prybar and kick them into place. Talk about a pain in the arse!:mad: I just dread the day I have to take one out!!:doah:
