Re: Bead Lock Choices
Thanks for the replies guys! I am definitely not spending the bucks for MRT's considering they'll be beat on rocks, trees, etc. I know that I can buy good weld-on types for $50 each wheel (don't know the brand yet, but they're well made). Then I saw the Summit catalog with the Barts for under $50 per pair. Just wondered if the quality was there or not. I have a set of steel spokes already to put them on.
Brian - how was the $200 spent since the Barts go for about $100 for four? Maybe you included welding costs?
Just curious - when you guys have popped tires off the bead (before you got bead locks if you have them), what percentage of the time would you say it was a front, and what percentage a rear tire? I have never lost a rear, only fronts, but my fronts are carrying a lot of weight with big block and a 60, which may help force the tire off the bead when the tire is pushed to the side and/or steered.
