Second thought...these would also make REALLY great rock crawling wheels. Ability to down down to low air pressure AND remain DOT compliant because they aren’t a beadlock.

What else would they be great for?

Holds the tire bead without the extra weight of a beadlock and remains DOT compliant.

How much do the 15x8 and 15x10 wheels weigh? Is this a stronger alternative to the DWT Ultra Sports?
. Local dealer told me lighter than DWT ultimates. I called Method and they told me 17lbs on 15x10 & 15lbs on 15x8 a couple months back. Rated at 1600lbs so definitely a strong wheel. At the time I also thought they looked more like a utility wheel than sand set up, but kind of regret spending more on slightly heavier bead locks now. Especially if 12.5lbs is accurate!!

That's what I get for trusting my distributor...Here you go! Still light compared to most beadlocks.
14x7 - 14.3 lbs
15x7 - 15.3 lbs
15x8 - 15.9 lbs
15x10 - 17.3 lbs

DWT are crazy light! Ultimate Sports are 11- 13 lbs!

are these your weights or questionable weights? I don't get why wheel manufacturers don't tell the truth about weights. Then you have tire manufacturers and their weights and heights. All liars!!

Unless you put them on a scale those are estimates weights. Packard is accurate on their weights as I confirmed it on my scale after I purchased them. 15x11 rear wheel weight 13lb 13oz. Front 15x7 is 11lb 8oz. Packard wheels would fold up in the dirt.

Those Methods are a nice non-beadlock wheel option for the dirt and sand.
