So I should be picking up my new 35s on Friday if everything is going according. This would be a prime oppurtunity for me to change my wheels. I know someone that is selling a set of some plain ol steel beadlocks for 200 bucks (they do have some rock rash, but it seems like a reasonable price). So I am asking people here what you would recommend. I am curious if they are worth it to get them, and what is involved with having beadlocks. I also would like to know if it is possible to get them balanced at a tire shop, or what do people do to go about balancing? So what are your pros/cons on beadlocks and any helpful advice. Thanks as always

With the bead lock rims in California it is illegal to have them on the public roads but I've been pulled over numerous time with my walker evans bead lock wheels and the only thing said to me about them was hey nice rims where did u get them
From the sounds of it there are no laws against "beadlocks" just against "multi-piece" wheels. I would think this includes beadlocks but who knows. Their wheels are also DOT approved but that only applies if you live in a state that doesnt have a law against "multi-piece" wheels. I feel AEV has done their reasearch on the matter. Doesn't necessarily mean they are right though...
