I already did reach out to my dealership a few days ago and I'm still waiting for an answer, hence my post on here. It was my last resort. Ford CANNOT legally sell a rim with a functional beadlock ring because they are illegal (Antho left this part out, which is totally fine). Tough crowd around here lol.If you're only going to accept an answer from a Ford tech, then maybe you should direct that question to your local Ford tech, instead of a public forum?
I concur with Antho's explanation, as this is consistent with all of the online research that I have done as well....factory rings are only beauty rings and are not setup or designed to be a functional bead lock ring, hints why Ford sells the beadlock ring for this exact purpose. I believe this has been confirmed in other posts as well.
