I agree, but I'll bet there are other parts on the Raptor made in China.
Saw them today at the Ford Racing rig display at the Parker 425. Sure wish I would have ordered them! They look awesome!
I added them to my order and two weeks later got a vin, I think it speeds it up!
... But really, I don't think it would delay it, and how would you know anyhow? Do it!
Or call svt and ask if there is a hold on them still...

The beadlock is just an awesome looking wheel. It's my personal favorite and if the delays are gone with it, I may very well add it to my order next week. Appreciate all the input so far.
and upside down!
I ordered them on my Terrain. And, I just ordered the locking rings from Ford Racing
to complete them - just in case. BTW - the locking rings are Made in USA!
They look great on your truck. End up keeping the first set I guess??
You can run ANY tire with them still setup with the "beauty ring", and Ford didn't say they WON'T work with any other tire with the beadlock ring, they just said they've only been tested with the OEM tire on and the beadlock ring. I'm sure other brands will also work, but you can't expect Ford to test every brand tire for them.
And avoid China stuff so you want to avoid the OEM wheels, but looking at Methods? Those are Chinese wheels too, and typically OEM chinese vs aftermarket chinese, the OEM stuff is usually higher quality.
Did you end up getting some money back for them to at least price match to the Ford racing price?
Yeah, I know they're Chinese wheels too. It's really frustrating because I'd like to buy all American but you either can't or they are astronomically higher. Heck, none of us would even have a car if we wanted 100% USA parts. I do prefer to buy American when at all possible but I'm also realistic and know it's just not possible all the time.
It is possible to buy american wheels for your raptor..... Anything automotive made in china is a piece of shit. Actually scratch that... Anything from china is a POS
