TrailReady Beadlocks

I am about to purchase a set of 17x8.5 TR Beadlocks and would like to see what the inside of the clamp ring is like, also the rims clamping serface.

also guys with the world series ring, what's different about them?

I don't have any pics, but I have a set of the HD series TRs with the slim ring. I can tell you that the mating surface for the wheel is smooth, and the clamping surface of the ring is machines to have light ridges in it. Try are perhaps a few hundred thousandths high. Not enough to mar the surface of your tire or anything, just enough to give a little extra bite... Not that it matters. I say it doesn't matter because on tires with a thicker mounting lip like my pitbull rocker radials, I had to use some plastic spacers that TR provided because the ring was being forced into a concave shape upon tightening, causing premature bolt heads to break. It's no problem now.

The world series ring is just a taller ring that will keep rocks away from your hubs if you have them. Since I don't, and you can swap rings as you wish, I opted for the slim ring since I like the look better. Hope that helps.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

That's exactly what I wanted to hear, I was set on a set of spyder locks because of that but I found they only come in 3.5" bs wich will be waayy to much since I am goin full width.

As for the WS ring I wonder what they did to make it llighter and "balanced " and if that would be better than the rock rings I was thinking about since it will be still driven on the street.

I had a bit of a time balancing my TR's. I would think the WS ring would be worse.
