MOPAR 17" Beadlock Wheel?

Does anyone have experience with the new Mopar beadlock wheel? Can I legally run these in PA on the road in the beadlock configuration? Appreciate any and all advice...

Here is the misconception with beadlocks they are DOT approved just like any other wheel. The issue is beadlocks need to be checked once a week for tightness (torqued to specs). There has been articles j have read on this issue as well. My questions is why go to the MOPAR ones? There are other brands out there that i bet are way cheaper. I have a set of spyderlock beadlocks and love them. I have noticed with a lot of companies that the bolts are exposed, so when going through tight spaces those bolts get grounded down to the point you cant remove. Is what i like about the spyderlocks is the bolts are recessed in the ring not exposing it.

Thank you for the input. After much soul searching and research, I have decided against beadlocks - have ordered DOT rims instead. I am much more on streets and highways than beach sand; and I can still air down for that with DOT rims. (But I love the beadlock look!) I've got my 35" tires, 3" stage 3 Mopar lift all on the way...

Just remember if you go single digits in air you run the risk of rolling the bead.

Jeep Team;

I need assistance understanding Beadlock wheels....

I know that the lock is on the outside of the wheel. I am trying to understand why the the inside of the wheel is not locked too.

Please explain why / why not.

Does anyone have photos of beadlock wheels without the beadlock attached and without tires on them?

Does anyone have photos of tires on beadlock wheels before the beadlock is attached?

Thanks

You can roll the back side of the bead as well. The double side beadlocks are a lot more money and a bigger PITA to mount. Ill see if i have pictures of me mounting mine.
