Anybody have input on these? Seems too good to be true for $125 each.

Oh whoops, I followed Scott's thread a few weeks ago about these but forgot the pricing.Originally posted by Erik Dlux:

"Beadlocks start at $75 a wheel for an uninstalled kit, or we can supply wheels and installation, starting at $125 a wheel, outright"
sounds like the whole wheel installed and all to me.

I find that many peopel don't understand this concept, so you are not alone.Originally posted by BillaVista:
<STRONG>I have a question....
where they say that they don't cut the outer bead lip off....this may make it cheaper...but would it not also mean you lose the (significant) advantage of being able to easily mount and dismount tires in the field with no special tools, like you can with regular beadlocks??</STRONG>

I see it as a good thing in a lot of cases - his kits lets you take cheaper and less used narrow rims and turn them into wider ones... Seems like a good thing to me :cool2:TJoop said:Here is the previous thread on these beadlocks. It may have a little more info.
