So these can be used on any steel wheel? And are they street legal or no. Would love to cut the fake lock off the wheels I have and put some real beadlocks on.

Bead locks are generally illegal for street use.

That is nothing more than an old wive's tale. There is not a single documented state in the U.S. that has made beadlock wheels illegal for use on public roads. Neither is there such a thing as a DOT approved or disapproved bead lock wheel, the DOT doesn't care and they have no laws against beadlock wheels either.

They are very hard to balance and have a good amount of weight to them vs a normal steel wheel or a good alloy. I would only run them if your losing beads on the trail now not worth the trade offs on a daily driven rig. My pitbulls dont start hooking up untill 8-9psi and they work really well at 4-5psi.

Not true either. My Walker Evans bead lock aluminum wheels are no more difficult to balance than my previous American Racing aluminum wheels were. My local Discount Tire store actually gets them balanced more easily than my previous AR wheels. The only additional weight are the bolts and ring which is insignificant where the unsprung weght factor is concerned.

And the only type of bead lock wheel that might be more difficult to balance would be where cousin Luke and Billybob bought their own weld-on bead lock kit and did a did-it-themselves weld-on job. Quality aftermarket beadlock wheels are precision made and no more out of balance than any other type of wheel.

Did I already say my bead locks are easily balanced, and as easy, if not even more easily balanced, than my previous American Racing #023 aluminum non-beadlock wheels were?

There are so many false rumors and misunderstandings about bead lock wheels that it isn't even funny.

A note added to my post because I cant edit it. I am referring to my AtoZ weld on beadlocks with bias ply tires being hard to balance not all beadlocks. I would not recommend my combination for a street driven rig.
