No bead locks on the street in California . I run these as I liked the simulated look of bead locks.

Cali has the most Retarded rules:

Funky Emission laws
93 octane fuel is not available / Sold
No Bead locks on street cars

and the list goes on.... lol

Why is it that bead locks are not street legal? Never did much research into it.

I think Cali views beadlocks as safety hazzards. They think they could come off on the roadways on in an accident. That is what I have heard anyhow. Could be BS.

According to that guys website.. Beadlocks are not illegal in CA. If they work as good as he says then he has one heck of a product.

They are really pricey at $140 a wheel.

It's not just in Cali that Beadlocks are illegal. There are very few beadlocks that are actually DOT approved. This means that you aren't actually supposed to run them on the road. However I would highly doubt that 75% of the LEO's in the US would notice or care about bead locks. Reasoning behind them is because they are held together with bolts. Running at high speeds with 8/16/24/32 bolt beadlocks can (not gonna say it's happened to me or anyone I know. I think they are perfectly safe if torqued and maintained properly) loosen up and cause a catostrophic failure of the rim and tire.

Now these Staun beadlocks are compliant with all laws. They are an internal beadlock meaning that you modify your existing wheel to use them. So you don't have any bolts or rings to worry about. All you have to do to your rims is drill a separate hole for the valve stem that is used to inflate the bag on the inside of the tires.

Still not sure....Don't easily find it in the VC, but the manufacturer's are quick to point out that most of them are not DOT approved. Still bet if they're not DOT approved we can't run them. Now finding someone who's going to dig deep enough to figure out if your wheels are DOT approved or not is another thing.

Just by lookin at them.. they look like an incredible deal. 2 concerns... 1.) Price $140 a wheel too much. 2.) I would like to see some sort of long term usage test to make sure they will last under continued use.

If I had disposable money, I would do it.

Wait til Andy gets on later. I'm pretty sure he used to run them when his rig was DD. For me I don't know how big I'd be into drilling a hole in my rims for the other valve stem. In case I ever wanted to get rid of the internals and just have a regular wheel again or make it into a beadlock. But I guess I could just weld them up.

Not really for a beadlock - $40 for some black steelies + 140 for the beadlock = 180 per wheel for a street legal beadlock? If it works as good as it claims - that's one hell of a deal.
