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.

I talked to a Hutchinson rep at EJS in Moab and he said he has heard a lot of people using dana beads on this wheel and having great success. He never mentioned anything to me about them not being recommended.

They balance the wheel and tire from the inside of the tire using centrifugal force.

I've been using Hutchinson beadlocks in my TJ for quite some time now. I've been through air leaks due to pinched o-rings, busted studs and nut-locks, etc.
I am now moving from 33s to 35s. I called Hutchinson to buy some spare parts, they recommend changing the o-rings every time you change tires. When I mentioned my intention to use dyna beads, they told me that they do not recommend using them as beads may slip between the inner rubber beadlock and the outside aluminum beadlocks. They recommended that I use weighs instead. That's what I have been using for the past years.
I know that many are using dyna beads, and in fact most videos in YouTube show this. I just wanted to let you know my experience with this issue. Cheers.

Old thread I know.

Idaho Jeep: do you recall if you used 086 or 082 insert with Baja MTZ?

Thanks!

Don't recall... I think I purchased them from group buy and don't remember if I specified what headlock insert I wanted or not - I looked but couldn't find my receipt.

Well thanks for checking. My wheels just arrived and they all have the 086 insert instead of the 082 insert I ordered to go with my planned choice of wheels: MTR/Ks.

MTR/Ks seem to take forever to get and discount tire offered to sell me Mickey MTZs for the same price they quoted me for the Goodyears - I was hoping these two changes of plan might cancel each other out.

Idaho-Jeep:

Are you still running these wheels? Are you still running them with Dyna Beads? Just wanted to get your impressions after having them for a few years. I am working a deal on a set of 4 in black right now and have some left over Dyne Beads still in the package from when my attempt to use them with Stauns failed.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

Yep.. still running them and with Dyna beads. I love em.. They were pricy but I love em... I have a little rock rash on a couple of them now but other than that they have held up well. How well the Dyna beads work I think is more of a function of what tires you are running.. Ive heard that some tires wont balance well with them..
