The rings are so high, you will have $600+ invested. I've thought about it considering that I took a tire off at Raptoberfest but the ongoing maintenance with them to run all the time or switch out is what hasn't made me jump yet....

I only know of 3 that have made the conversion. The big down side to it is you end up doing all your own tire maintenance. There are not very many shops that will help you deal with them.

I have converted mine and love them. Like Orange said you need to maintain them constantly.

Thanks for all the feedback guys, much appreciated! So now Im thinking to do the conversion to a true beadlock, only thing that is holding me back is the constant maintenance with them. will post a picture of mine when I do them.
