Stupid Newb Question

What exactly is a Beadlock? I see the wheels with the beadlock rings, but dont know what their purpose is? I assume has to do with keeping tire on the wheel, but interested in specifics...

Yep. There's a ring that bolts onto the outside of the rim, securing the tire in place. Handy if you run low - or no - air pressure.

Also illegal in most if not all states to run beadlocks on pavement.
