    Me too! But, it works IF done properly. Some manufacturers require to replace all bolts with new bolts if removing and replacing tires.

    Sounds nearly as much work as changing out a set of ring and pinion gears. Unless you really need them, true beadlock wheels seem like a maintenance headache.

    Appreciate the replies. I just purchased a tow hook holder made by bmw for my M5 which holds a GoPro. Seems like a cool location and POV for some filming. It has a few adjustments to position the camera which sticks out either the rear or front bumper.

    It prominently states not legal on road. What a bunch of hooey. I’m guessing like beadlocks, would a LEO actually even know? Doubtful.

    New gen 2 owner here in Portland Oregon. Anyone know of any good trails here in the NW to take the beast off roading?

    Its the DOT rating- and most PD would not care- But here in NJ we had a forest ranger who hated dirt bikes- and would write tickets to other wise league duel sport bikes if they had off road tires. He would see you at a gas station or dinner and pull in and write a ticket.

    I drop to 15 for going on the beach- no problems.

    dont toggle thru drive modes while you are going 65+ mph on a bumpy dirt road, you may go from 4wd to 2wd. it can get a bit squirrelly, quite an Adrenalin rush tho!
