    I've been looking at Methods nv 105 bead lock wheels and they say something like not for street use. Why? What's the difference between a street wheel and a race wheel?

    They're not DOT approved bead locks. That's why.

    If I'm not mistaken, running true beadlocks is a pain because the bolts always have to be torqued. Some thread locker may remedy that but I haven't tried.

    Mike, I may be wrong but I believe you have the MR305's which are a one piece, simulated beadlock wheel. These are what I have.
