Re: Bart Racing Wheels?
Im running the Bart wheels on mine. 15X10 with 2 inch BS.
I havent wheeled yet, and I dont have bead locks. The comment about the bead locks troubles me, as before I read that post, I would have recomended these wheels, as we have raced them on our Modifieds.
Another poiint on the Bart wheels, which is probably why the beadlock was so flimsy, is that on a race car, particularily dirt, they are designed to give away, absorb inpact, hopefully to spare suspension parts from breaking. Dirt cars bang wheels alot, and its much easier to have a disposable wheel, than change front end parts and get everything set right again. Maybe that is why the bead lock seemed so flimsy, but still doesnt explain the poor quality of construction.
