yes, 5x4.5 bolt pattern. Width is either 7" or 8" but I'm not 100% sure which. If I was going to gamble I'd say they're 15 x 8 but don't know backspacing at all on them. Puck, we can talk... I'm keeping the tires that are currently mounted on them but we could possibly work something out once I'm ready to let them go if you're really that interested in them. Like I said though, I can't promise they won't leak... Once I pull the tires off I'll have a better idea on if my idea of what's needed to fix them will work or not. Personally I really think it will but I'll wait till I see what I see.


Hey Andy, jealous?



I'll have to look at the radius arms on my red expo. There's a chance with minimal work to them they could be built to be super strong and I'd make you a pretty good deal on those too once the parts are all off the trucks...

eh, not everybody knows what they're called.

I get alot of people calling them anti-siphons (which is a different thing), or just "the irrigation valve" or the "irrigation shutoff". Some folks call em vacuum breakers, close enough for me.

Kaiser blade....some folks call it a sling blade, i calls it a kaiser blade blade. mhm.

I have no idea what that is either. I can assume that it is either the valve in my garage or the valve on the side of the house for the sprinkler. If it is the valve on the outside of the house... I have to replace mine before I rent this house out because the freeze pin is popped out the top from last year.

Also marn I ended up just getting the cheapest fake grass from lowes. It is only for my dogs to take a dump on after all. Hopefully it will be here by this weekend and I can put it in. I am assuming that I have to dig down a little bit then use some sort of fine sand to even everything out. I just need to source some silica sand or whatever to keep the smell down from the dogs since it will be in a semi confined area.

I had to wash off about three inches of red Utah mud. Needless to say my street is now red and the neighbors like me even less. Lol

When i used to work for bobcat we had this tire bead sealer that was like a mix between rubber cement and black gasket maker. It worked wonders on dented and rusted rims. If you get that stuff you wont have a problem sealing those bead locks.

They're already sort of a deep set wheel. They might not look it from the outside but the center flange is pretty thick which adds to them being a bit kicked out. If anything the length of your wheel studs might even be a little bit of an issue.


As for sealing them, no matter who I sell them to (friend or stranger) I'm going to do what I think they need to fix them. If it doesn't work slime makes that stuff that's really thick with chunks of stuff in it, that's the route I'd go personally but at this point they're getting sold either way cause I won't need them once I'm done with the expo build. The beadlocks from my toyota are getting shuffled to the expo and I'm changing lug pattern on the toyota this summer when I build it so it'll get new wheels then too which I actually already have.

I just need to figure out the rotation of wheels around so that everything is still sitting on the ground. LOL There might actually be a short period where my toyota is sitting on 31" street tires! That or I'm going to the wheel rental place and putting it on 30" wheels for a few weeks and cruising the crap outta it with it's bling bling!

I myself would go with ubuntu on a normal PC. Cheaper and more secure than both of them, plus you never have to buy software.

I prefer the functionality and smoothness of OSX. My 2008 macbook is still functioning like the day it was purchased. Not to mention the resale value on macs is great.

Now if you add "for the money" into the mix. You can build a SMOKIN fast PC for many $100 less than a mac, but it will still have the normal PC issues.

I personally think Apple is the better operating system and the computers are better quality. To me, its well worth the extra money...
