DIY Beadlocks

im looking to make a set of beadlocks out of cragar soft 8s. These are going to be on my DD. Will these work for a DD? Will they balance and let me travel over 50? or should i wait and just get the eatons. Also which diy beadlocks would you recommend.

Personally I like the my Allied Racelines. I never balanced them and I DD my rig travel up to 70mph not really worried about going faster with no issues.
I bought them from Trent Fab. But if you still want weld ons Great Lake Offroad, sell some nice ones. Again I am very happy with what I have and I got all 4 shipped for 950.
