Most beadlocks hold only the outer bead, the one that blows 99% of the time. The cool thing about the Hummer wheels is that they lock both beads on, since they use a pretty different method of clamping the beads down. Here is a pic of a normal beadlock, pretty self explanatory -
the Hummer wheels are a bit different. They use 3 parts, the main wheel section, the outer lock, and the beadlock itself. A pic of the middle section and the outer lock -
And then there is the beadlock, which comes in a few different versions, but the magnesium is the most common. A pic of just beadlocks -
So, the way it works is, the beadlock is two peices that bolt together, it goes into the tire, then the two halves are bolted together -
Then the middle section is slid up from the backside of the tire, through the beadlock, and the outer ring bolts on to it.
So, the inner bead is locked between the rim and the beadlock, and the outer bead is locked between the beadlock and the outer ring. Pretty cool, eh? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] The finished product -
