I wouldn't get 32 bolts...i have them and they are a bitch. A lot of my friends have less bolts and seem to work just as good.

The more bolts the less likely the tire will slip on the rim,That can ruin a $500 tire in 30 seconds.

Beadlocks

I got 32 bolt beadlocks from Great Lakes Offroad. They are a pia to bolt up(mount the tire), but they work great, have had no problems with them or tires since installed.

Crawl Fab has them for about the lowest price around(for how many designs offered)

I recently got a set, seem nice, but haven't installed them yet.
