Beadlocks being illegal is an old myth.
From that link:
$100 LIFTLAWS.COM BOUNTY - Anyone that provides us with documentation that shows that beadlocks are illegal in any state or sends us a copy of a fix-it ticket they received for their beadlocks will have $100 donated to the BlueRibbon Coalition in their name.

|Naddan||Thanks. That’s about what I was thinking. Didn’t know they are not street legal in some places.|

|jeepdaddy2000||Beadlocks are designed for high horsepower vehicles running large tires and extremely low air pressures that see abrupt/heavy throttle applications in high traction situations. Under these circumstances, a driver can hit the throttle and see a tire peel off a rim.|

|Kruzin||Unless you are doing serious crawling with pretty large tires where you drop your air pressure to under 10 psi, beadlocks are overkill. They aren't even street legal in many areas, relegating them to trail only rigs that you trailer around. Plus, there's a LOT of things to spend money on to get the Jeep to a point where it would "need" them.|

Beadlocks How important?
Just starting with my Jeep/Off-roading addiction. Lol so I’m curious and could find any thread about it. At what point do beadlocks start to really be necessary. Seems like most people don’t bother with them.
