I am going to go towards long's bead lock rings and was wondering what kind of steel wheel that would work the best (i.e. what back spacing? What brand? Reversed? Strength? Cost?) I would like to get away from a wheel spacer, but if I have to I will.

I would like a 15x10 wheel plus the ring = 15x12. Gonna run 38x15, 38x14.50 sx's or boggers. Stain 6 lug.
So anyone have some help?

little inner bead support with reversed rims,
so I am using my stockers 15x8, 3 3/4". which was the deciding factor for me. use spacers and it is easier to adjust what you want.

I used a stock black rockcrawler rim with 3.75" BSing. I run spacers to avoid reversed center rims which IMO don't really need beadlocks. PLus I plan to ditch the spacers over time as well.

Adding that 1/4" thick ring around the rim has to improve the strength greatly and I doubt you could smash one. Idf you did, you have other (more exspensive) parts to fix.

Your attempt in flaming me, on a legit question has failed. For you :flipoff2: Newbie ass.

Bones, how big of a spacer? Right now I run 33x15.50 and rub on my leaf's in the front, and 33x14.50 and rub on the frame on the rear with the same wheel you have right now.

12" wide rims and a 15" wide tire will look :rainbow: , kill mean more lift because of the increased arc of the turn, and get beat up like nobody's business.

Get some 8's and add the beadlock kit to them - much better :)

granted your question was not as common as a sas, waggys ..etc, but it has been discussed many times, however width and backspacing has been discussed many many times !
I searched for like two minutes and found tons of info !
I guess your just to smart to search or to lazy!
Honestly if anyone else would have asked the same question I would have tried to be more helpfull !!, but lately your posts have been really stupid considering you seem to know everthing about everything and you spend your time flaming people for stupid shit like spelling mistakes :flipoff2:

Who sounds like a jack ass now?.....HAHAHAHAHA:flipoff2:

Oh spelling mistakes are on you. So backspacing is important and was wonder what others are running or experiences so that my experience will be the easiest.

Oh I did post on that post also.......:flipoff2:

poaked a rock in the sidewall a few weeks ago aired up at 25 psi. I do have minor concerns with the ring pinching the sidewall though. Trucks been parked wince then pretty much, so I haven't wheeled with them aired down yet.

it's a great product i'm running a 2" backspace black steelies from 4 wheel parts, but i would run regular backspace it's pain in the ass to put 38 sx's on abackwords rim had toweld on the beadlocks then grind 1/4 " off of the rim to put on the 38 if your willing to go through the headache ,it's a good combo allso it makes your 15x10 a 15x11

Not in my eyes. If mine were swampers I wouldn't be concerned at all. I'm not all that concerned now. Just something in the back of my head is all.
