    Do you have some links or brands that are USA built at reasonable prices? I've looked at some but they're just so pricey.

    Beadlocks or non bead?
    For beadlocks non crazy prices are
    Trailready hd beadlocks
    Walker evans
    A few more ill update post once i get home im in northern ontario right now using my cellphone



    I run trailready and i absolutely love them to death. Beat the living shit out of them an they have absolutely bo problems!
    Been running my new setup almost 2 months now, none of the bolts even moved.....
    Thats why they use them in throphy truck builds also quite popular along rock crawling crowd.
    If you want the most heavy duty rim available that will take beatings for years on years Trailready is the way to go.

    Its funny how if you go on any other forum or any other pre running forum people always complain about breaking and bending their methods and method beadlocks.... Um ya cause method is shit. Trr hd beadlocks run anywhere from 400-450 each.


    Dont be like everyone else running methods..... If your gonna run your truck hard you need heavy duty real rims not chinese hot wheels....
    Opps nvm heavy duty my box from the rims says Extreme duty 100% made in the usa....... Anyone want to debate now?

    I respect your opinion because I know you're one of the mod kings around here so I will look into them. I do plan on using my Raptor for what it was designed for so I do want to do it right if at all possible. I'm really not sure about beadlock vs non-beadlock. Not crazy about the idea of beadlocks since they are "off-road" only. I know they're technically legal from what I know but I would hate to be involved in some sort of on road accident and then have them see that I had off-road only wheels. So I'd probably lean towards non-beadlocks or potentially beadlock wheels where the ring could be added.

    I appreciate your responses and expertise!

    My order took a little longer than others who ordered from my dealership because of the beadlocks I've been told. I wouldn't give into the OEM ones(absolutely hate the look of them).

    Beadlock plus Terrain = sex

    I've seen a few Blue SCrews with the beadlocks.....mehhh Better than the OEM looking rims. To each his own though

    Added the beadlocks to my order today (at invoice)!

    Like the look, like the fact that they're forged and if I want to convert them over to true beadlock I can.

    Go with the beadlocks. I have them on mine and they look really good. A hell of a lot better then the stock wheels.
