    How about $175 shipped?[​IMG] That will be for 15" Locks and lets try it for a month and see what you guys can do to the volume, if we sell enough to keep my cost low I will continue this price, this is for a set of 4 inners and 4 outers, 15".

    [​IMG]

    These are very Plain Jane locks, no pretty patterns or cutouts, they are laser cut & 1/4" thick. The 15" have 33 holes. Prices will be $15 higher as they get larger simply because they use more material, 16" will be $190 (they have 36 holes), 16.5" will be $205 (they have 39 holes), & the 17" need to be $220 because they get into another sheet of steel. This shipping can only be to the lower 48 for this price so if you are somewhere else call first. No discounts can apply to this low price, but always remember the CK510 10% discount when you buy anything else.

    Thats right, $175.......delivered!

    This is most definately a shipped price to the lower 48 only and it should be called in. We are going to try this for about a month and see if we can sell enough to keep the price low. There is really not any huge difference in the Beadlocks being made today as long as they are 1/4" thick, Ours generally have more bolts but that is a small change. The only real way to get the price lower is to make very large quantities , we are making 80 sets of the 15" locks and that is 640 rings, I'd say a few more than other companies are making at a time...[​IMG]

    Well, if you only had smaller tires and wheels......

    You would only need $175.......Sounds like a good reason for new tires to me!

    :haha: nope... next time i need new tires, i'll be needing a d60. :) i'll probably hang onto the 16" rims too, unless i go hummer, then i won't need your gear... maybe encouraging me on the new tires isn't such a good idea for ya, is it. :wink1:

    Its like the old Saturday Night Live gag......

    Remember the Change Bank?

    Not....But volume is the key, it took making 80 sets (640 rings) to be able to make them cheap enough to sell this low. It helped that my main cutter has a monthly job making 1000 disks' that almost exactly fits the center:wink1:

    I sure hope you have this deal again later or can keep it. I need a 16.5 and 15" sets but seriously don't have the cash right now. Thanks for making such deals though, you guys rock. I love the fit on my 14FF spring perches!

    Just place the order online.....

    But don't pay, I will adjust it for free shipping and send you a PP invoice for the correct amount. Pretty easy!

    We have now sold 60 sets of these and will not have a problem maintaining this price!

    enough for 5 wheels, 15", with shipping to 96720 ... I'll supply the lube, at least that way it won't be the usual sanded lube the shipping company uses.

    Just add 25% and $7 for the additional shipping......

    So, for 5 wheels it would be $225.75 for 15" wheels, delivered. Sound fair to you?
