Aren't the military hummer beadlocks 100% street legal? Also the inflatable internal headlocks are too, even though you can't show them off to everyone else (a big reason alot of people like beadlocks).

I would like to meet a cop that even knows what beadlocks are...

Not to say there aren't some off road enthusiast cops, but I'm sure a very large majority of them wouldn't have a clue as to what they are.

with the popularity of bead-looks, what inspection station would even check if its real or look alike.

While my trailreadys have a DOT stamp, it's also stamped "Offroad use only". That said, I've had mine on the road for 8 months or so now with no problems. Companies have to say that for liability reasons.

They are not illegal, but they are not legal either.

Profound. And requires much more explanation for it to be considered anything but wrong.

Coming from a cop in Georgia, I have never seen a law about beadlock wheels, DOT approval for wheels or anything related to wheels unless its on a commercial vehicle (which are covered by Federal Regs and additional state regs) . Federal regulations cover vehicle manufacturers when they produce cars for interstate commerce. This is why they have the DOT approvals on wheels, lights and god knows what else to be able to sell the car nationwide. It's like the ATF enforces gun laws on the people that are gun dealers, like background checks and registrations, but private sales from individuals are not regulated since we don't do business in interstate commerce. Federal laws are wide in scope, but very specific in what they can regulate. I've never seen any laws for private individuals that regulate the types of wheels they can put on there cars, only that the equipment functions as the manufacturer intended (broken bolts, cracks in the wheel, would get you a ticket).

Of course I only speak on knowledge of Georgia Laws and in short no one cares if its a beadlock or not as long as it is in good operating order and not driven around half broken and dangerous. We need a California Cop to check this out, god knows they have more rules in that state than any other.....
