    i wonder if ford helped them develop the C rated sidewall for the kO2. they have an E rated one also thats heavier and stiffer sidewall. I beleive if you order the C rated kO2 from anywhere it is the same as the OEM ford tire

    I often tow my TT to the mountains/campsite, un-hitch and go out on the trails. Not sure I would feel safe with the BL set-up doing this. I would be interested to hear if others tow and use BL's.

    Pretty descent. I’d say as good as in the regular non-beadlocked configuration. They’re still concentric because of the way the tapered ring work.

    Hi Don, Many aftermarket bead lock wheels do not have a DOT stamp on the wheel. The Ford factory bead lock wheels do have a DOT stamp. Seems the laws vary by state. Everything I’ve found on line and in the CA vehicle code indicate the law is silent on this, thus not-illegal. Bead locks need to be checked/maintained, poor maintenance could result in a wheel/ tire failure and a crash, which could result in other legal issues. If anyone finds information to the contrary, please advise.

    Im curious what the offset is on the 2019+ beadlock wheels vs the standard wheels as it looks like they are pushed out more. Anyone know if the offset is lower?

    Same offset. Moving the tire to the outside of the bead makes the tires stick out more. I noticed it as soon as i did mine.

    One question i do have, Whats the difference in the 2017 and 2019 beadlock ring? Looks like only a cosmetic change? If i move over to a 2020 i would like to swap my beadlock rings vs having to buy another set of 6. Especially if its for cosmetic reasons only.

    EDIT: Never mind. Looks like they removed material to clear the new wheels spokes.

    Yes they definitely seem to be different, based on the newer wheel design.
