    I was looking around online at beadlocks and saw these. They sound like they would work well and are a good alternitive to a bead lock. Anyone out there have them or seen them in person??

    Looks a little expensive to me when comparing them to actual beadlock wheels. 4 of them in 15x10 wheel size is over $700.

    but they are street legal and are cheaper for those of us running 16.5's.

    Titanic runs them. he has for years, IIRC. Someday, i hope to be running these, mainly because of the street legal issue.

    Beadlocks are legal in Michigan. There a few companies making 16.5 beadlocks now, Trailready for one.

    If you want double beadlocks... run 17" wheels.

    If you want inexpensive beadlocks TrailReady makes them for the same price as the Tireloc system costs. Or, since you weld pretty gosh darn good buy a set of cybrfire's kits.

    Cybrfire is probably the direction I will go. I already have the 15 inch tires. And 44s arent cheap, so I will stick with them. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    How do you know how I weld?

    I've had them for 8 years. I like them but they are not perfect. I wish we had a better distributor here in the US-JD'S in New York is your only option. Here's what I have told my local friends to do. Call Sweden direct and order whatever size you need but tell them you don't need the innertubes or the special valve flap. Should get a slight discount. Then call JD's and order there extra heavy duty farm equipment innertube that's much better than TireLoc's. If you make it that far e-mail me and I tell you how to make your own inflate valve out of common parts for about $5 each and they won't get knocked off or beat up rock crawling.

    I got the tireloc beadlock system used from aguy here in CA.
    The kevlar piece is perfect, the inner tubes are OK one is bad, and the inflating gadgets are OK but I would be interested in seing how you did yours.
    I Know Greg72 and seen his setup, he loves it and it works great.
    How much do the HD inner tubes cost? Can I get them from an industrial tire place or is it only JD that has them?
    By the way I paid $50 for all four setups. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
