New Beadlock from American Racing

They're not cheap but it's a pretty good looking wheel.

That's all I have.

good stuff is rarely cheap. However, I didn't see a cost?? How much are they. I will let you know if they are expensive.
I don't like them cause they are only in the 4-5" back space range.

I found them online (somewhere) for $ 600 ish and was quoted $ 500.00 each here locally.

Expensive?

that's stupid. You should not pay that much for a single bead lock. Especially one from American Racing. Not dogging their wheels, just saying there are tons better options out there.

For instance... you can pick up a set of hutchinsons for around 400 a wheel. It is a true dual bead lock and the tire will not come off. End of story. Hell my wheels were only 350 a piece.

Like I said, they're expensive.

BUT! They are a good looking wheel. I personally wouldn't spend that kind of money on wheels but if they ever decided to get realistic with their price ( $ 300- $ 400 range) I'd consider them.

I don't think they will go well with the pink.

A-hole.

If my Jeep is pink when it gets back I'm jumping off a bridge.

For that price, you can get a set of 5 instead of 4 from Walker Evans!!! Very expensive! (Look really cool though! )

Scout, if your looking for some black beadlock wheels, you can get some RockMonsters in black. I like them better than the Walker wheels.

I've seen the RockMonsters. That's also a good looking wheel. I'm a long way away from buying bead locks though.

Yeup, it is a good looking wheel until I scrolled down and saw the price. A good ol Walker wheel will work just fine.

Oh, and Scout. Better get your trunks on.
