Looking to get new tires, current tires have beadlock. Can I use the wheels without i

I was wondering if I can reuse the wheels but leave out the beadlock on new 33s. It would be even better if any of you can tell me the brand of beadlock or how I can check without removing the tire. Im going to need a shop to install the new tires and depending on the brand they may not agree to installing them. Picture is attached.

Looks like ProComp or Cragar simulated beadlocks.

Does that mean I have the option of not installing them on the next set of tires?

They probably arent really removeable. The tire sits outside them. Mounting perspective they normal.

Okay. I mostly wanted to remove it due to extra weight that I didn't use if they were removable. Since they're fake, is it fair to assume tire shops will be okay with installing them on new tires if they don't touch beadlock stuff?

There is nothing beadlock for them to even question.
