This is the best thread I've seen describing the mounting of these wheels. Thanks for the write-up!

How often do you check the torque on the beadlock nuts? Have you ever found a loose nut? How well does the locking mechanism of those special nuts work?

Thanks - yeah I looked and couldn't ever find much info on mounting these.

I checked a few nuts about 5 months ago... couldn't ever find a loose one. They lock really well. They have also never had an air leak.

Thanks for the quick reply! If/when I get my own beadlocks, I think these might be the way to go.

i think i saw somewhere recently that these wheels are now available in 17" and in a black and/or gun metal finish as well...? do you know if this is true or not? i can't find any info about the ones that i'm reffering to and i can still only find limitted info on the ones that you have. it's quite frustrating... haha

thanks

Have not heard about a 17" wheel but do know that the gun metal finish is available.

i ran the same concept in a stazworks for 5 years and 2 sets of irocs on my tj. never lost a bead, had to add air to a tire, or tighten a bolt in all the time i have had them. now im onto a rubi project and just ordered a set of these for it. I regularly run 1-2 psi in winter for a huge footprint and can go just about where i please. you wont be dissappointed im sure but the staz rims are alot cheaper for the same thing.

I am trying to order these for my TJ but they come with 2 different beadlock rings (the rubber inner).
BL0082 or BL0086 http://www.quadratec.com/products/92803_590X_PG.htm

My tyres are not listed on the crappy little picture attached to Quadratecs site.....

Any idea's on how I can determine which one I need - no response from Hutchinson as of yet...

if you look at the spec sheet in the extra pictures it will tell you which one to order. appears to compensate for tires with thicker beads, and thinner beads.

I love my rockmonsters for how they work, but they are a major PITA if you ever have to change tires, and being aluminum, they show their abuse quickly.

Thanks - It doesn't actually say which is which in bead thickness and it doesn't list my tyre either (35" Maxxis Trepador Radial)...

Hutchinson still haven't returned my email - I guess I just have to wait or I will end up ordering Walker Evans if they haven't replied in a couple more days.

Hutchinson service sucks. They aren't helpful and they tend to send all inquiries tobtheir dealers. Check Quadratec for beadlock applications. BF Goodrich KM2 uses the thicker inner beadlock. maxxxis uses the same inner beadlock as the BF Goodrich Krawler.

Thanks for that response...

Agree on their service....to be honest, I would have used a small Hutchinson dealer rather than a drop shipper like Quadratec if I lived in the US but Quadratec are great for servicing me in Australia.....

Hi has anyone taken a tire off a hutchinson beadlock. I just got some new mtr kevlars the other day to put on my beadlocks i picked up a few weeks ago and stupid me monted two of them the wrong way. i got the front half off rather fast but i only got the back half to move about a inch after 4hrs or so. I have tried alot from a 5 gallon bucket, to a tire spoon, even a highlift (which worked the best untill the bucket broke), and i used alot of dish soap too.
