So just a few things on the Ford Bead Lock Capable Wheel for anyone just checking in: The wheels are DOT approved! (for those buying the bead-lock capable wheels for looks only) The bead-lock rings say offroad use only (First you must spend the $500 for the rings and then convert your wheels to true bead-lock which just means remounting them with the outer tire bead on the outside of the wheel which the bead-lock rings then holds on with its 24 bolts per ring). You do need to keep an eye on the wheels and make sure the bolts (all 96 of them) remain torqued properly (47.9ft/lbs). Most say that once torqued properly they don't come loose that easily or often but like any vehicle (especially after hard use) you want to keep an eye on them. I think one of the concerns for use on road is for those who are lax in checking their equipment. You certainly wouldn't want a bead-lock ring to come loose at high speed (whether on road or off road). I doubt most people who get the Ford bead-lock capable wheels will ever convert them. I'm still researching and asking those smarter than me about their use. I have the rings and plan on utilizing them because I know I can use them around here but I also want to learn as much as I can about their use and limitations. But again that's the nice thing about the Ford bead-locks, it's not an either or.
