    OK, did all the searching I can stand and didn't find the info I was looking for. Maybe I just missed it but help me out here. On the Rockstomper weld on bead lock do it yourselfer kit, Do the bolts center the tire? I mean to ask does the bead of the tire touch all the bolts when installed properly? I have seen some bead locks that have a raised area on the inner lock ring that the bead touches and this is what does the centering. When I say raised I mean only slightly so as not to interfere with the squeezing of the bead. Does anybody have any in progress photos of their own installation of the weld on kit? Those would be most valuable.
