    I don't run them, but it wouldn't be any different from normal wheels. Its all looks, they don't function any different.

    Why would you want to run a wheel that cost more to look like a Beadlock when it has the same function of a regular wheel? /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I think Hipinion might run those...the true beadlocks are illegal on road.

    Not too sure about that, at least here in Texas. I have a friend of the family that is a State Trooper and he says that they're not illegal, and DOT regulations apply to commercial vehicles. Maybe it's just me...

    This has only been argued over like a 100 x. Not even close to does a 35 fit w/ a 4" lift.

    Cragar makes some wheels that are simulated bead locks. They only cost around 70 bucks each for a 15x8 and look to be pretty strong and well built. Jeepers seem to like them /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    If you read Fourwheeler, it seems as if they get tickets for them in Utah, when they go to Moab. I drive a truck, and I don't want to get started on Utah's retarded Highway patrolmen.

    I run the simulated because the only dot beedlocks here are the hummer rims and the simulated give an extra lip to protect against rocks...

    It all depends on the cop. The guy's in Utah know what to look for. I have a cop next door and he doesn't know ANYTHING about whats legal. he thinks my 44's are illegal, but never questions headlamp height, or bumper height.
