    The DOT beadlocks seem like they will work for you. Just make sure you can run with full highway air pressure when you need it.

    Those DOT beadlocks are an entirely different animal. They do not use an exterior locking ring, there is some sort of an interior ring that pushes the tire bead out against the rim.
    oh sorry man i stand mistaken! i thought you were calling me a poser for wanting to run beadlocks my neighbor runs fake beadlocks and they look decent but they arnt functional

    Ahhh, there is Light out there. Thank you very much. I really didn't want to, nor did I call anyone a name. I have a tendency to express my opinions in a manner which might seem rather intense.

    Now, me having said all that came before, there still is nothing wrong with anyone purchasing and using any little shiney bits one chooses. It is all a matter of personal taste. I will however, continue to hold to my "form follows function" philosophy. If it don't work, I won't use it.
