|SFrubicon||If your real dead set on beadlocks, atx slabs seam to be really good, a lot of offset 3.5 back spacing and really strong. That's what evo 1 runs in the king of the hammers race, doesn't get tougher than that.|

Watch Craigslist. I got my Trail ready Beadlocks off there for a Steal!
Remember Beadlocks can be a real PITA! Very few people will mount them for you ( I mounted my own) and your paying arm and a leg. Even less will balance them for you. Then you got the weekly maintenance making sure they stay tight. There's a lot of benefits to having them but they come at a cost.

I personally have some Trailworthyfab rims and tires. I will just say that if you plan on traveling at any speed over a crawl you should not get them. Read my build thread the link is in my signature nod you can see about two pages of fighting with trying to balance them. After spending a significant amount of money on trying to balance them I ended up buying centramatics and that helped to the point where if the road temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure all match up I can drive 70 without being shaken to pieces.
If you plan on throwing your jeep on a trailer then go for it. The beadlock is awesome. You won't spin your tire off if you pull the valve stems.
IMO save and go for an aluminum beadlock. You will save time and stress way more than the money is worth.

I think this might be something you don't want to get involved with.

Even if they are used take offs the sale of them is still not sacntioned because the military uses the DRMO system to handle sellable salvage items and they are still government property until disposed of through DRMO.

|vince.parker25||We had an opportunity to score several sets of these military 37"s and rims cheap. But I know they had the PVC inserts. I read that these military ones are super heavy and impossible to balance. Also. They have a massive 7" backspace. Would it be a bad idea to look into these 37" and rims some more? I know these double beadlock rims are supposed to be great but I need it to be street drivable as well.|

|jagerhelix||Military mtrs are on 16.5 wheels. they are also extremely heavy. not many manufactures make a 16.5 in 5 on 5 either. If you really want to pursue the military mtrs though check out trailworthy fab. That's basically their bread and butter. Those kevlar military tires are also made to sit under an up armored hummer upwards of 15000 lbs. Might ride a bit stiff on a jk. Not knocking this route, but there is a reason its not too popular|

Military HumVee tires for JKU?
I know this guy that runs 37's Goodyear Wrangler MT tires on his 2007 JKU. Very heavy duty tires with Kevlar (bullet proof) sidewalls (literally off Military Humvees). The guy he gets them from works at the motorpool in San Diego. They only can be mounted on 16" rims which means I would have to get rid of my Fuel 18" rims. Has anyone had any experience with these tires? Pros/Cons? I can get 5 for approx. $1300.00.
