    Dayum. That looks sweet. I was never a fan of the beadlock rims, but it looks really good with the matching paint!

    I like that. When I get my actual bead lock rings I may have them painted to match the truck.

    First congrats on the truck! Got mine from Simo at Van Bortel. Great Dealership!



    I want to paint mine black. Can the actual rings be taken off the rims while leaving the tires on? Or do you have to pull the tires off?

    I was going to take the rings off and send them to the paint shop while still driving the truck. The rings only look cosmetic. Bad idea?

    It's just cosmetic. They unbolt with a #45 Torx.
