What do I need to know about beadlocks?

The TJ I'm looking at has them on it. I've never had them before so I was wondering what I need to know about them. Can you get your tires change at a regular tire shop or is there some where special you go to it. Or do you have to mount them yourself? I've found lots of videos showing how you can do it yourself but was wondering If I would have an option. Thanks.

What bead locks? There are a few different styles.

Some tire shops may mount them while others may not. It all depends on company policy.

Your specialty 4wd shops may mount tires on beadlocks but almost 100% positive that no general tire shop or any other automotive shop will mount them.To much liability so in most cases your stuck doing them yourself unless your willing to pay a lot to have it done by someone else.

Some beadlocks are actually easier to mount than standard tires. Mine I do myself without any special tools. Actually much easier than worrying about finding a shop.
