No more tires squeezed off the rim.
Mud rings (wide flange outer lock rings) now available for 15" wheels only. Compare to our standard outer lock rings--the inside diameter is reduced to help keep trail hazards from damaging your valves, scraping hubs, and similar.
At the time of order, please specify if you would like nutserts (threaded inserts that pop like a pop-rivet into the inner lock rings) or Nylock nuts with your beadlocks. Nylock nuts will require two wrenches during tire install, but will never vibrate loose, plus they cost less. Nutserts are easier to work with during tire installation, but are more expensive and more difficult to install.
15" hex-head-bolt beadlock kit, with Nylock nuts. are $80 per kit.
Rockstomper beadlocks start at $80 per lock kit, require welding for installation, and are simply designed to be the best and strongest beadlocks on the market.
One lock kit contains enough parts to beadlock one wheel; order four kits for a complete set of all four wheels.
We start with two 1/4" thick lock rings for maximum strength and durability. 32 bolts, 3/8" attach the outer ring to the inner, for maximum clamping ability.
A few words about leaks:
Some information on strength:
Our 32 3/8" bolts are 28% stronger than competitors' 36x5/16" bolt locks.
Available for steel wheels only.
Countersunk flat head cap screws available for $30 extra per lock kit.
Our beadlocks are designed to weld onto the outside lip of the wheel, meaning that you may not need to cut the outer bead seat area off of your wheels to install them. This type of installation widens the wheel by approximately 1.5-2"--really handy for making a cheapie wheel into a nice useful wide one. Turns 15x8's into 15x10's, 15x10's into 15x12's, etc.
Normally, the tire would seat on the existing bead seat. With the Rockstomper beadlocks installed, the inner edge of the bead seals against the inner lock ring, and the outer edge of the bead, against the outer lock ring. The two are clamped together, retaining the bead and keeping it from spinning on the wheel or pushing off.
Because machining of the wheel is not necessary for installation, Rockstomper beadlocks can be installed by any certified welder--since the welds need to be airtight, we strongly recommend that they be MIG or TIG welded.
Add $30 per lock kit for nutserts instead of Nylock nuts.
Other sizes of beadlocks are available, too!
Each beadlock kit supplies enough parts to beadlock one wheel; order
four beadlock kits to lock four wheels, or five if you'd like a matching
We recommend that beadlock wheels not be inflated above 20psi.
Beadlocks require that the tire be mounted over the outer bead. On certain brands and sizes of reversed wheels, combined with certain brands and sizes of tires, this can be difficult; some may not be mountable in this manner at all. Please verify that your wheels are mountable in this manner prior to welding beadlocks onto them. Installed beadlocks cannot be returned under any circumstances.
We have seen some outer ring "coning" with certain brands or models of tire more than others. Because of the number of bolts used, and the relatively low load on each of the bolts individually, this has not been a structural problem--only of appearance, on close inspection.
Due to rising costs of compliance with EPA and OSHA regulations, we can only offer our beadlocks in unpainted steel.
