20" rims???

I was wondering what you guys ran for 20" wheels (preferably beadlocks) on your trail rigs. I am trying to find something light but strong. Any one run stazworks double beadlocks? how much do they weigh? I am running a dana 60 and 14 bolt so i need the eight bolt pattern and i wanna run some 49 IROKS.

same here, 20x14 usa6x6 wheels double beadlocked with 49" Irok's, beat on em pretty good, they are heavy but no problems with bending or leaking, except where the rims bolt together, but for the price (200.00 bucks each) they are great, wheel and tire combo weigh in at just under 250 lbs each

i think that comes down to personal preference, and the type of wheeling you do.. i like the extra width that my 14's give my rig, and while my rig does sit stupid low for what size tires it has its still tall..and the wider stance gives it stability..there are some that will say that this is just too wide and that a 10" wheel is perfect.. i have 4 wheel steer and with a healthy small block , rockwells and 49's i can pretty much make the buggy fit into any hole i try to put it in

factory mogs, weld on lock kit from Great lakes off road, inchworm screws on the backside. (note the rubber washers on the screws have been removed because they leak.)

how do you figure out the backspacing you need to keep the inside of the tires from hitting the frame when flexing and also how do you figure it out to keep the tires out of the radius arms?

I would recommend going out and spending some time looking at your rig to figure this one out. I've seen 35s rub the frame (narrow track CJ) just by turning the steering wheel. However, 49s might hit your frame rails with 'reasonable' backspacing on a D60 when you simply turn.

So, the real question is, how flexy is your rig? With 49s, I bet if your rig flexs well, you'll rub somewhere. Just remember your sawzall is your friend. Try moving your rig around with whatever you have currently, and then use a tap measure to extend your tire size and see what hits. After that, take a guess on your current backspacing, and then order your wheels.

Staz's stuff is considered top notch. Also, remeber you can vary the backspacing with wheel spacers if you really mess it up.
