    the post was deleted as not to slander TR so he could go to them with a real legal case about it. I can't remember who it was just that he has a really sweet K5 and that I too would like to know how he is doing.

    hi

    i'm not dead and i don't eat from a tube so i guess i'm okay.

    if you already have TR's i wouldn't worry too much about running them... we were already running them on ducttape's longbed for about 2 years with no problems and i have mounted several other sets with no issues. I won't go into detail until this issue is all settled. i personally am kinda weary about putting air in tires or tightening lugnuts and am hesitant to be near beadlocks of any sort so don't expect me to start badmouthing any ONE company. when all is said and done i'll be sure to post up.

    Good to hear you are better.Sucks that if they are dangerous, you can't warn anyone, but I FULLY UNDERSTAND the reasoning. I don't run beadlocks, I have always run an 8" rim with 12:50 to 16:00 wide tires down to 2-4 lbs and not lost a bead. But beadlocks look cool /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
    thx for the update, hope everything works out for you.

    I'm glad you are OK and not stuck in the hospital or something. I run TR's and can't think of what could have happened but I will be careful with them anyway. They seem to be a really good product but /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif.
    Please let us know when you can bud and take care.
