bead lock bolt #\'s for a zook owner...

I have been doing some research... How HD does a sammy owner need to go... 16 bolt ring or 32...

Figure running 35's as low as they'll go...

Oh and what is beneficial with the different heads on the bolts... just looks or is there actually some functionallity? Choices are button, flush, or hex head.

Re: bead lock bolt #\'s for a zook owner...

With 32 bolts you will get the best seal on the tire and will aloow you to run a lower tire presure with out burbing a tire. as far as the bolt heads go its based on protection of the bolt head obveuosly a flush or button head will get less rock rash which will allow you to remove them easily were as a standard bolt is going to get chewed up pretty good which can turn into a wrench fest in itself to remove them
hope that helps

I have 16 bolts on crunchy and they like being torqued a lot .... 32 is going to take that much longer .But maybe they will maintain their torque setting better as they spread the load more evenly ?

Re: bead lock bolt #\'s for a zook owner...

OK, this is probably a dumb questions, but what does the bead lock rim do for you?

I mean if its just to help keep the air in the tire at low pressure, how about running with an innertube at 3-5 psi?

I had to ask [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

But it's still possible that the tire would lose its bead on the rim, which then you would have to reset it back on. Its also possible that when the tire does lose its bead, it could pinch the tube, putting a hole in it .. then your screwed as ya wouldnt have a valve.

Keeps the bead seated , and the tire on the rim . Some guys run almost no pressure at all for crawling , without them the tires can spin on the rim ....

I had button head bolts on mine and I hated them. They look kinda cool but I couldn't keep from stripping the allen head out. Went with stainless 3/8" hex heads and couldn't be any more happy. Oh, btw I have 16 bolts.
