    my 2019 scab has the regular cast wheels. I see take off sets of oem Beadlock wheels on eBay for upwards of $2300. I also note you can order a set of new methods for well under $1000.

    Want to keep the stock tires as have 700 miles on them so far

    Opinions on your choice of wheels?

    Thanks

    Mike

    The factory beadlock ready is a much better, higher quality wheel than the method. I picked up a set off a 2018 with new tires for $1000. They can be found if you look and are patient.

    I’d pick the OE headlocks over an aftermarket wheel like Methods.

    I have the 2019 Beadlocks and totally dig the style. But... I’m correct to assume that we can’t run any upper arms due to the offset correct?

    Ok... just not upper arms with larger than a 1.25” Uniball.

    Right?

    So keep the stock wheels or keep the stock upper arms. Wish they went together like PB&J.
