POOR choice of rims

Very disappointed in these rims. Had them put on 2 weeks ago. Took the jeep out Saturday, and realized the beadlocker rim creates a channel and mud packs between the beadlocker and the rim. You can see water standing in the channel at the bottom of the rim. I am working out of town right now so I can't mess with itright now, but does anybody know if I can remove the beadlocker rim? Dont think this will solve my problem, but may not be so bad. As it stands now, it looks like it will pack mud just going down a muddy road.

Thanks for any info.

Rims = KMC XD125

Instead of beadlocker "rims" maybe I should have said beadlocker "rings"

Move to the desert, we don't have mud here. No just kidding. Sorry to here that but I got nothing for you since we don't have mud. All I can think of is take the rings of and only put them on when you go wheeling and need them.

Yeah they're not true bead lockers, just for show. Thats why I am wondering if they would actually come off or not. Dont, want to start unscrewing bolts when they're not actually a bolt.

And you can keep your desert, I'll keep my mud. lol
