Used a couple molding tools and a wonder bar to bring lip over, and then a dead blow hammer to beat it the rest of the way over.

All the videos I've watched on the Internet DID NOT look that hard at all. Granted this was our first time doin it, but it just wasn't as easy as I thought. I knew it'd be tedious, and that was the easy part, but we are all sore after doin 5 lol
HUH??? What are you talking about? You didn't bolt the beadlock ring on before putting the tire on the wheel did you? I don't understand.

Not trying to be funny. I've actually seen a Jeep dealership "install" a set of beadlocks on a new Jeep and they put the outer tire bead over the lip that the beadlock ring bolts to then bolted the beadlock ring on. I still don't know how they held air.

probably bad terminology on my part. See the tire by the upper right corner of rim, it wouldn't go over the wheel without another part popping up. Not even with a 230# guy standing on the area that was already seated, it'd still pop up

Width on that MTR? 13.50? I'll be mounting
Either a 35x12.50 Trail Grappler or a 36x14(I think) Irok Radial. Either way, lots of sunshine and tire lube!

Just to clarify, the tire doesn't go OVER the part that has the bolt holes in it. It rests on TOP of this ring and is squeezed between the rim and beadlock ring. Shouldn't need any tire lube. With the tire in the position it is in the above pic, lay the ring on the wheel and use 4-6 extra long bolts evenly spaced around the ring to start the ring down evenly on the tire/wheel. Once everything is centered up, start putting in the regular bolts and tighten them in a criss-cross pattern a little at a time (neversieze all the bolts) and replace the long bolts with the supplied regular bolts. Keep tightening in the criss-cross pattern a little at a time until they are all evenly torqued to the recommended torque setting. Repeat 3-4 more times.

12.50. We didn't have much heat here saturday so i put em in the powdercoating oven at 140 pretty much all day. used some soapy water too(mostly soap). i had read these tires were not fun to mount in multiple threads on forums, and that pretty much turned out to be true.. for us anyway. and no i didn't bolt up the ring and then try it. hope you have an easier time than we did!

this isn't how mine worked. we needed lube to get the tire on, and the longer bolt idea didn't work for us. it didn't "rest" on anything, it had to be persuaded like crazy and then put the ring on. and by the time we had the inner tire over the lip, the standard bolts reached, just barely, but they did.

OP, what wheel did you order? i'm guessing some are designed a little differently

So pretty much same wheel as me with different ring. Those were back ordered when I got wheels. Love em. If you have any question during install feel free to holler at me. I can give ya the links I used to help us out. I don't think it'll be as difficult as long as you use a tire that isn't an MTR/K. That seems to be the common denominator in the other 2 folks I found that had a PITA time mounting them. Good luck and post some pics when done!
