Who on the board makes the best DIY beadlocks?

Who on the board makes the best DIY beadlocks? Why are they the best in the areas of price, lead time, quality? I've searched but I want up to date opinions. Some of you have been running them awhile and I'm curious of any unforeseen issue youre now experiencing. Im looking to buy the timeless classic 32 bolt ring for 15 rims

they are all about the same. pick your design then the price.
some sell them with bolts, some without. some have anti coning rings, some don't but the basic rings are pretty much the same from company to company.

I'd say buy the ones I sell but shipping may cause them to be more to OH from NC.


Let me know if I can help with some. or if you have any other questions.

The standard ones are all the same--not too much you can change 1/4" steel cut in a circle. If you want a design then there are many options.

We sell the basic round style for $199.95 delivered for four wheels, if that helps.

Most of the vendors here on Pirate sell a great DIY beadlock, just find the style you like.

I got a set of custom cut ones from DIY4x4

I'd go with rockcity and get the anti-coning rings.... mine have lived through some serious abuse.

I'll second DIY4X. My buddy has them on his Jeep. I have MadMac's rim stiffeners on my H1's. Both are great company's to deal with.

I've run a set Of Rockstomper beadlocks and they were great. I also won the rock rings from Copperhead Fab so I'm thinking they're some good folks also
