What do you guys think? I'm looking for a wheel that wont make my machine much wider, if any.

The new ITP SD series dual bead locks look pretty pimp, and they offer them in a 4+3 offset (I would rather have 5+2).

I always wondered the same thing , I here 1 side bead lock is good enough , but when coming of a jump or over a dune bad and hit the inner tire in the right spot is it still possible for it to pop bead ?

Not really. Trophy trucks use 1 sided bead locks. They run through whoops at 100 mph.

Heres my deal, will the outside beadlock keep the tire attached to the wheel if you have to limp out of the desert for a few miles on a flat? To me thats the whole purpose of a bead lock. If the outside lock will keep it attached then I dont want the headache and extra cost of having it on the inside.

With a single beadlock if you have a blowout you will have to watch out for it folding up on itself or catching on something on the inside. I have drove on one for a few hundred yards at a snails pace but it works.

I gotta disagree. The only time I have lost the bead was when I landed off camber on the inside of my left front. I bent the tie-rod and pulled the bead off the inside of the wheel. So yeah it's possible if you hit just right with low tire presure. It's not a real likely senario, but leave it to me to find a way......:haha:

ya I figured there was and is still a way to blow a bead so if u want 100% locked tires, yes dual beadlocks r needed

I have driven an 8ply grim reaper flat as a board 20mph out of the hatfields for 15 miles and it didn't come off the rim without beadlocks.
Single beadlock will definitely hold it on.

It sounds like, with the way you drive/find a way to break down. You need to carry a 2 way radio, and a lunch. Lol.

Nope, just tools and a few spare parts. These things a pretty tough and take almost all the abuse I can dish out.
