What??? With proper maintenance, they leak air no more frequently than any other type of wheel or cause tire malfunctions with any greater frequency than non-beadlock wheels.

In FACT, the DOT has no (!) law against the use of beadlock wheels on the highway or public roads. Those who claim the DOT has said they are illegal are 100% wrong. The DOT has actually issued a letter stating just that.

Have you read this thread?


Stop bring logic and proven facts into this thread since this is obviously the place to spew mindless stories about your brothers best friends uncles girlfriends aunt that told you about how the PoPo said beadlocks were illegal.



One of these days people will actually figure out that beadlocks are legal, but until then we get to deal with these idiots who think they know more than me, which obviously isnt the case.

Well, seeing as slit-ring truck wheels are still DOT-approved common sense points that beadlocks pretty much also have to be. Those split-ring wheels, unlike beadlock wheels, actually have been known to fly off when fully pressurized (at 110 PSI no less).

This logic is lacking.

They CAN still flatten your tires. Beadlocks just keep the bead from popping off... IMO, it would tear the tire up faster if the bead was locked to the rim with 0PSI

As JB mentioned earlier, They aren't illegal. Those manufactures who sell "Street Legal" and "DOT Approved" beadlocks are just marketing strategies used to fleece the ignorant into preferring their product over other products. I've got guys over here running true beadlocks and they're fine. matter off fact one guy was running his with a bolt loose, I told him and we fixed it. There is no increased "Catastrophic failure" risk over normal rims.

I hope youre being sarcastic, because while Cali is pretty strict, its hardly the most strict.

Yearly vehicle inspections come to mind.

They probably don’t want people driving around with 10psi in their tires. That’s great off road, not so great on road (epically with the 37 super swampers)

now i think its time to close this thread as it has officially become retarded. who in their right mind drive their rig on the streets with 10psi on a regular basis? and to be fair with non-beadlocks can be driven with the same amount of air. i always aired my cragers down to 8psi on the trails, that doesnt mean i also drove home like that either

As I mentioned.. driving highway speed with aired down tires will contribute to excessive sidewall flex and the tire will heat up and fail...

Man! some people dont get with the program.
