Inner bead lock questions/feedback

I've been researching the heck out of beadlocks that use a tube and liner combo inside the outer tire to push the bead against the rim. I still don't have the answers that I want, and I'm hoping the community here will help me out. I've learned how they work, and the advantages, but I haven't talked to people who've actually run them. My questions are:
1. How long do they last (e.g. does the tube get chafed and degrade)?
2. Based no the facts that they're a dual beadlock, DOT legal, and not priced through the moon, why in the heck aren't more people running them?
3. If you ran them and there was a problem, what was it.



Please note, I just started researching this a couple of days ago, and you can bet your tail that I'll ask everyone I see with two valve stems what they think the next time I'm on the trail. However, to stem my current curiosity, I'd love to hear from people who've used them, or are still using them.

I ran a set on my CJ rock crawler and they were fantastic.


The toughest part was finding someone to do the install. Once I did they liked them as well.


Never lost a bead but blew a sidewall and they still held. Changed to the spare and on we went.

Thanks PapasJP. You used the past tense "ran". How come you didn't get another set? How long did you run them?

I used them for over ten years, Staun, on some 285 SSR tires on steel wheels. I would be hard pressed to do them again. It seemed, for me and my set up, that they didn't flex enough. I couldn't get the sidewalls to crinkle as much as the guys running beadlocks. On the Staun you are running 50 PSI in the tube. Some other manufactures may not run that high of a pressure however. They were easy to install once you got over drilling the hole in the rim. I did have one tire that spun the tube in the tire just a little. It made it hard to get a good pressure reading. I ran them for a long time and really never had any problems and or leaks. I never popped a bead.

I ran them less than a year and stopped rock crawling and sold the Jeep.


Now I run the forest trails and explore.
