Cool, take pics. I always wanted to make some.

Darcoid/NorCal and Erik’s West carry most seals that you can dream up.

I was pleased with the upgraded brakes. Good petal feel and great holding power.

Hit a few desert sections in Moab, plenty of brake there.

A few shots from my trip. Not many action pics -- too busy driving

I'm planning on grabbing a new set of Reds next season. Finally going to upgrade from my clapped out steel wheels.

What beadlocks are making panties fly off these days? I've looked at the usual suspects, they all seem nice.

Raceline, KMC, Fuel, ProComp, Hutchinson, Method, ??

I saw these on an episode of Diesel Brothers -- anyone know what they are?

I'm looking for feedback on a good BFG Red + beadlock combo. 17x9 max width.

Those are forged pm truck wheels, not sure if they are still in business I believe their new company is innov8 racing but I'm not 100% sure. Cool to see your rig is still around.

The Method 101 beadlock is what I'm leaning toward.

I am please with my dirty life, the method 101 are sexy, and procomp has the trilogy that look great, I also love the Ultra 103 extreme machined/blackhttps://rimzoneonline.com/wheels/ultra/103-xtreme-bead-lock-machined.html .....after that its a fair jump to to the ones you listed

vison also has the manx

Whatever wheel you choose at least get the backspacing/offset to achieve decent scrub radius. That will play a big part on how your rig handles and turns.

Agreed that detail is important.

I have 17x8's now with 4.5" of backspacing. Targeting a geometry that is close to that.

Also, I can squeeze between the fenders on my trailer with that setup...

Fitting the trailer tends to play a role also. 😂😂
