So my buddy just picked up a quad and he wants to buy my stock bighorns from me. Problem is I don't know shit about bead lock rims. Can anybody enlighten me on exactly how they work? He's wanting to put them onto a non bead lock wheel and I just don't know how/if that'll work. Any POSITIVE feedback would be great. If I wanted to get beat up ID go to the Cummins forum. Lol. Thanks! :beer:

A Tire is a Tire as they work on either. The only difference between a standard rim and a beadlock rim is it clamps the outside tire bead between the rim and the ring so it can not spin or be knocked off the rim by a rock or similar trail hazard. It's actually easyer to mount and dismount a tire with a beadlock rim.

BTW welcome aboard.

Yep what he said. Same tire just one setup is pinched between the outer face of the rim and the ring & the other is pushed against the inside of the rim by air pressure (and slightly smaller diameter than the lip of the rim).

Welcome!

Check after you dismount and look for sidewall pinch damage before you sell them to your buddy

Just like it was said in post #2 a Tire is a tire! The beadlock rim is completely separate and the tire will mount up no problem. In fact, it is easier to mount because you can do it yourself without tire mounting equipment.
