I made an upgrade to the Warn hubs. Trust me when I tell you that you don't want any part of an upgrade. I designed and had built steel body versions with a removable drive flange. I have 5 folks testing them. To date, the tally is Flanges 0, stub shafts 3, spindles 3, inner axles 2, u-joints 3.

All Warn parts and if you add up what that cost versus a few broken hubs, it's pretty clear that having a hub break is not that bad.

When did they start making fuses for your fuses?

Dang it. They are only offered in the 5x5 premium flavor. Either way, my 5x4.5 didnt fail, it shattered from an impact. Looking to fab or buy a "hub lock" guard. Anything out there? Apparently if there is, my google searches came up short.

Maybe you need less backspacing on your wheels

kinda hit the nail on the head. I bought these rims as temps until I saved for my beadlocks. They are supposed to be 3.75 backspacing but seem to sit in alot and i do rub a bit. Just another thing that I have to buy down line. Never ending. And thanks for the pics Roberto..

That would be affirmative since there are not even any DOT approved rims.

The DOT neither approves nor denies any designs. They publish a set of specifications that you must follow if you wish to be compliant with specific sections of the DOT code.

Based on this I believe the Walker Evans beadlock wheels are up to DOT spec. At least they are the only ones I've seen that are advertised as such. They're pretty spendy though. I need my Mickey Thompson protectors to look a lil more like bacon before I can justify it to myself.

Any beadlock that can handle wheeling will be sufficient.

We live in CA... We don't have vehicle inspections
