You prolly won't find a clip on beadlock....kinda reminds me of Tommy Boy with the clip on tie.

I've never seen what you are asking about.
When you have a choice, buy American.

I have Mickey Thompson Classic "Beadlocks". The ring is held in with 10 or so bolts. I'd gladly trade you for your eagle alloys. I bought them when I knew nothing about jeeps and thought they were legit.

I got a great deal on my Eagle Alloys when I originally bought them in 2007, but I'm not a fan of simulated beadlocks like I have. I'll be selling my wheels sometime this spring when I replace them with some real beadlocks, so if anyone's interested, let me know. It won't be until the spring, so keep that in mind.

Here's the style I have.....OP, are these what you have?

Go with the Staun internal beadlocks if you need them, if going for the look, have to buy new rim.

One thing good about some of the fake beadlocks like from Mickey Thompson is the ring does serve to reinforce that part of the wheel. It could conceivably save you from a dented wheel. That said, I'm no fan of fake bead locks either but hey, we all don't need real bead locks.

The last time I took my Mickey Thompson bead lock rings off, the aluminum threads came off with the bolts on several of them. I used epoxy to reattach the damaged ones and their still holding. I highly recommend not purchasing.
