If you use 2.5" backspacing you dont have to trim a thing.

DesertJeeper: You know if the beadlocks are legal in AZ? Do the cops harass you if you have them?

There are a lot of places that sell the 15" 8 lug wheels, unfortunatly they are all on nation wide backorder. I have been waiting on one for my spare tire since Feburary now. You can get them much quicker if you order them in white and spraypaint or re-powder coat them black. Good luck

Powder coat sucks get hamerite. It’s tuffer cheaper and can be easily applied. You can get it at Lowe’s or ACE just about any paints supplier. 1 gal will do 2 axles and 6 rims.

I dont know if they are illegal here. I've never heard of anyone having a problem but I only know of one or two guys who run them on Jeeps that are driven on road... most are trail only.


If it were me, it would be the last of my concerns.

sounds like a loada crap to me.. i got my beadlocks after a 4 week wait, but I got a set of 15x10 8 lug 2 months ago and they were in stock at the local tire/rim joint...
we had to grind very little to get beadlock wheels on, but the regular whitespoke ones required major grinding. These were on 2 different vehicles both with chevy dana 60's in the front. and , yes, just grind the calipers..

i used black rockcrawlers from 4wheel parts. they have 3.5" backspacing. you can get white spokes from summit pretty cheap but they have 4.25" bs and that is why i passed on them but that might work for you.
