Anyone have a pic of 2019 OEM beadlocks setup as beadlocks?

    Man that looks good! I wish I could just get that exact outer ring without going full beadlock all the time but I don’t think it will work that way will it?

    I’m guessing from what I see in that cross cut view of the wheel and bead lock ring, you will have an unsightly gap between the inside of the ring and the wheel bead.

    I have a set on here for sale but they fit the 2017/2018 wheels.

    I powder coated the stock rings on my 17 for a similar look. Really loved it. Maybe someone will make a beauty ring that looks like this for the 19s. I like the smooth look in aluminum or something lighter colored but it would have to be notched to accept the spokes of the 19 rim that go to the edge.

    I’ve been running them on my ‘19 for over a year now. I actually have 11 of them (5 w/ Duratracs, 6 w/ KO2’s).

    Its a good look! I remember your thread. The new wheels really look good with the bead lock rings on them.

    Looks so good. Just can’t believe these are $215 per wheel. For a ring of aluminum made in China!

    Yes I agree. I did find them for $169 each. I think I found them for $150 each for my ‘17.

    Any problems with air leakage?

    Not one bit. Between my ‘17 and ‘19, I probably have about 80-85k miles I’ve driven with them beadlocked. Not one issue. No leaks, no loose bolts.

    Ford did an awesome job designing these. The way they taper lock the bead to the ring to the wheel seems to be the trick.
