The past two big events I have been to I saw hundreds of these wheels. They all look great on each rig. That to me shows the quality of the wheel, or at least the popularity of them. LOL I am kinda wanting the black ones like this.

Looks killer!
Thanks man, your rig looks killer as is but the alum rings are pretty sick

The black ones are pretty sweet too but I have a black Jeep so the alum ones will look badass.

Mounted two more rims tonight, I dont recommend anyone mounting beadlocks after going to the gym

Well getting my tires balanced today was an epic failure! The tires were so far off they couldnt balance them so I spent the afternoon taking all the rings off and re-seating them to hopefully get the bead tightened evenly. On the second try at the tire shop it was the same problem. Beads might be my only hope

Maybe the guys doing it were clueless or just didnt want to mess with them? So you had the tires on the rims and aired up right? Were the ring bolts properly torqued? Not sure what loosening and then retorquing is going to do. Starting to scare me about going to beadlocks. Guess I better order my Dynabeads to be safe.

Being a 35" tire it required too much weight according to the balancing machine to get balanced. I placed my order for dynabeads a few minutes ago.

If anyone needs the link but I will have a full review once everything is mounted.

Sorry you are having so many problems with them. I hate it when an issue fights so much on these things.

Lu, did you get your rims in 15X8"? I saw that on the boxes you shipped the rims in and it made me wonder.

They only make the 15" Racelines in 15x8 and 3.25" BS for the 5x4.5 lug pattern.

Few updates:

-Heard back from Gerald at Savvy via email yesterday and "supposedly" my bumper will be finished the early part of next week and mailed toward the end of the week. At this point I can say I have no confidence it actually will since I've been told this on a couple of occasions. Bumper was ordered on Feb 14th and Im about a week away from cancelling the order.

-Gas Tank skid has arrived and has been painted satin black



-Dynabeads came in.


-Superior shafts have not shipped yet and might not arrive before my april 21st wheelin trip.

-Rampage top and extended brake hoses have arrived

-Finished painting the passenger side half door.


-Started to sand and prime the driveside


-Lastly I mounted my wheels today and took her for a test drive!!
2 rims were able to be balanced with sticky weights so I put those 2 up front and then I added 8oz of the dynabeads to each rear tire. Got it up to 50mph and no death wobble!

Excuse the tic tac toe on the wheels, it was the only way to make sure all bolts were torqued. Ill get it cleaned up soon

She looks FANTASTIC!!!!!! Glad to hear that the beads are working for you. You need to find someplace where you can get her up to 65 or 70 to really be sure. So am I understanding you to say that the front were balanced with weights, and the backs only have the beads? Or are the back ones a combination of weights and beads?

Hmmm, so much for all those nay-sayers huh? Sounds like you now have the perfect setup for testing the balancing abilities of Dynabeads. I would want to test it further. Maybe try the back ones on the front and see what you think. Just so you know what to expect when you start rotating tires.
