Beadlocks are inherently heavier than standard wheels and usually have larger heavier tires mounted. This means more unsprung weight,(wheels/tires/axles) often preferred for rock crawling & trail rigs. Beadlock wheels can be balanced like standard wheels but sometimes take more time to get good results. The top reasons for balancing issues with any heavy wheel/tire combo is the mass & quality of the tire itself and often the technicians lack of experience with balancing larger wheel & tire combos. Check around for shops with experience first. Alternatives to standard balancing are available.
When choosing your beadlock design & ring thickness, keep in mind, 3/16" thick rings and less bulky ring design like 'THIN RING' or 'GEAR LOCK' will be lightest weight & easiest to balance. Choosing a ring with a symmetrical design design also makes balancing easier.
ALTERNATIVE TO GENUINE BEADLOCKS, If your vehicle is a daily driver that does not often see the type of terrain genuine beadlocks are made for, Rock Rings (aka style rings) may be better choice. They strengthen outside lip of wheel while giving the wheel the "beadlock look" we offer many unique designs that dress up plain steel wheels. Custom Designs Available.
