    Did not find a whole lot of write ups on this on the FRF as to acquiring a new set recently, mostly opinions as to use or not use, etc.,... so I will ask again and bring up for further discussion.

    What I have found so far;
    1. Ford has discontinued 2013-2014 True OEM bead locks?
    2. Can not find aftermarket replacements
    3. Are there other brand compatible rings that work properly?
    4. 2013-2014 Rings different than 2017+???
    5. ¿Custom MFC that make them?

    Any suggestions, comments or corrections are greatly appreciated... B6E710E9-F741-4DDE-8FC6-D3B050D9EE05_1_201_a.jpeg

    I know a lot folks who've used them on daily drivers. Initial few week remind yourself to check the torque once a week or so depending on how you drive. You'll hopefully see that they will keep their torque well and then check them monthly as you would/should with tire pressures. Although they're not officially DOT/Street-legal they are well built. Using more bolts and higher torque than most beadlock wheels.

    Found a few listed on online which turned out to be old in-stock listings that was not updated and in fact all were sold out. The set I found happened by chance, the first set I was traveling and missed out by a couple of days and was sold to another member before I got a chance to mail a check. The second set and the one on the pic, I reached out to another FRF member that was parting out his truck and had a set he was considering selling. I went with the olive on my wheels to match the army Camo wrap theme on my Terrain. I have a set of chrome splined lugs that I am also going change the color. Still on the fence...black or OD?

    Did you ever find out if the 17' beadlock rings worked on the 13-14 OEM rims?

    No I didn’t, but I think they have a different number of bolts. Fortunately, I found a ‘13-‘14 OEM set.

    I have a set of 17' beadlock rings I think and they look like a perfect fit. I'm wondering what might be different.
