Do you remember what size bolts you bought? I've also seen threads on using beadlock spacers....do you see a need for them or happy with the way yours are set up?I had to purchase slightly longer bolts as the sidewall of the KM3s is very thick compared to the Big Horns. It's likely that once started the original bolts could ahve been used but I felt better about having more threads engaged and I had already bought a box-o-bolts. Great tire BTW!
Just use the next longer size bolt than you have and get 4 of them started in an x pattern. The stock bolts should work after you get the rings compressed slightly. You could also just use the next longer size bolts all the way around if they are not too long.Do you remember what size bolts you bought?

Did you use washers as well?I did a 220 mile 2 day ride with the stock bolts and they are all still there. I know when I did mine, I had to start one bolt then the other right next to it until I got all the way around. when all had a few threads then I started tightening opposite and then torque
My buddy has the KM3s on stock wheels using stock bolts no problem. His are 32s. As mentioned, simply get a few slightly longer bolts in order to get the assembly together and compressed a bit then you can use the stock bolts. We've had to do a couple wheel repairs while in baja and the tire shop guys never had a problem getting the
I wouldn't use 3d printed ones... The stuff I print isn't very strong.Quick Thought: Has anybody tried to 3d print can am Beadlock spacers? It looks like Raceline uses plastic for their spacers.
Just to save some folks some headaches like mine.... I purchased the Raceline Ryno wheels, and after mounting one of the BFG KM3,s on it, I will need a spacer. After torqueing the bolts to spec, I still had a noticeable gap between the wheel and the beadlock ring. The KM3 5/8" bead is 1/8 too thick, and the ring was turning in slightly. After miking the gap It is slightly smaller than 1/8", so I can get by with one spacer as they are 1/8" thick. Now I have seen some that our local dealer mounted without spacers, and yes if you over torque them you could squeeze it down, but I'm not willing to do that...I wouldn't use 3d printed ones...

On another note with raceline wheels, has anyone mounted that KM3 thick bead without spacers? I'm getting ready to and it looks questionable...
