Which Beadlocks?

so, what places are a good source for beadlocks? Are the eatons with the 18 bolts for $125 each decent, or should i save up for the high impact 32 bolt ones for $175 each?
any other good sources? my rims are to screwed up for weld on ones, plus it will make them to wide, so i am looking for a complete rim.

Re: Which Beadlocks?

Is this a Zuk Q or a Bronco Q?

I have no experience with owning beadlocks, but Eaton wheel I know by name, have not heard anybody say anything cross about there products, cost is less, and I like the 18 bolts vs. 32.

I think these guys are right up your alley Zach. 32 bolts, steel, and they even sell weld your own kits for $75 a wheel. Check 'em out. Rockstomper

Oh. I just thouht that it would be easy to find a set of steel wheels 15x7 or 15x8 with the propper backspacing. With the kit it would put you right at 15x9 or 15x10. Rockstomper sells the wheels complete as well both aluminum and steel as well as other cool stuff.

Re: Which Beadlocks?

Id say it depends for each vehicle, and how low you want to run. I would definitely get the 32 bolt for the bronco. Once youre aired dow to like 5psi, those tires will really want to break free from the rims, and who knows if the 18 bolts would be able to hold it under the weight of your bronco. the Zuk is light enough (or atleast, it used to be) where i dont see a 18bolt beadlock slipping on the bead.
