Have you had a chance to dismount any or your tires yet? I'm just curious if there is any damage to the insert from the beads flying around in there.

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.

Nope.. no reason to take any apart. I don't see how the beads could do any damage to the bead lock.. they are tiny - what damage can they do at low speed bouncing around? At high speed, they are forced to the spot on the outside of the tire they need to be for balancing and then don't move. Id be shocked if things looked any different inside than they did on the day they were put in.

I guess I'll go for it. I already have three bags of the beads, so I would only need to buy one more.

Idaho-Jeep; I see that you're running the Vanco 15" brake kit with these. Any problems with clearances?

I have used steel BB's for @ 15 years. I have them in my truck I haul cars with. I average about 3500 miles a week and the tire shop I bought my tires at are impressed how they wear vs traditional wheel weights.

I have these on my 1979 CJ7 and love them. Air down and keep going. Run them with the Goodyear MTR's on the road @ 10psi, with no problem. Drove from Ohio to Colorado last summer with this set @ 28 psi. Gas mileage wasn't great, but when you're running 40 inch tires, you can't expect to get good mpg!
