Beadlock help.

I just moved up to 37x14.00r15. IROKs from 35x12.50r15 Goodyear MTR "old style" with that said the 37s seem to have a larger bead than the old 35s and my lock rings won't smash down enough nor are my bolts long enough... Any suggestions? Get longer bolts?


Pictures since everyone likes them...

Start the rings with longer bolts, then see if you old hardware can reach the threads, if they can re-use them, if not get new hardware.

Grade 8 is overkill for beadlocks. Grade 5 is more than enough. No need to spend that much coin. Though it looks like your running like 16 bolt lock rings. So maybe grade 8 is needed. On my 32 bolt set up I was told I could use grade 2 even but I went with the 5 just to be safe.

I bought 70 grade 8 bolts with washers for $5.81 cheap enough for me. Everything I do is ridiculous or overkill!
