Re: My new bling...

Those are new from USA6x6 and they are hummer beadlocks, see the 8 bolts holding the outer wheel half on?

They are just the plate centers instead of tube centers.

Re: My new bling...

Ive got no idea what that means, but hey- it works! Anyways, were those the original hummer beadlocks you've had for a month or so? Or is that a new set?

Re: My new bling...

It's a new set. I was uncomfortable with the tube style centers so I got these in trade for my old ones.

Re: My new bling...

those arent the premium hubs are they, are those the 1/4 turn plastic ones.

if there not the premiums can you tell why, if heard a few opions both ways, on why to get the premuims and why not.

Re: My new bling...

They are not the premiums. I didn't see the point in paying for the premiums when the regulars use the exact same internal parts but with a different knob. The knob doesn't see any load so why pay extra for a metal one? And I have never had a problem of it unlocking on it's own with only the 1/4 turn. If I was going to pay more I would just get some Poly Performance Drive Flanges.
