I am going to 30 inch mongrels for the reasons of better durability, longevity, and improved ride. I am also wanting to add some width to help with the tipsy ness of the max when fully loaded. So I am looking at 14x8 wheels with 4 inch offset. The question that I have is about bead locks. What are you guys opinions and or experiences that would lean you one way or another. I primarily will ride this set up in the desert and mountains, no mud, minimal rock crawling and no pavement.

People say you have to recheck the torque on those beads every ride or two, otherwise you could have flats. IMOP this is too much of a hassle, esp if you have double beads.

I have a cordless driver with a torque adjustable clutch on it. I set it to the proper torque and hit all of the screws. It takes about 2 minutes to do all 4 tires.....

Is there any way to put a beadlock on a wheel that doesn't originally come with a beadlock.
I have 12" wheels I like, I don't want to have to get rid of them but my wife has officially tore two tires off the bead since our new clutch setup. I can try and explain Again how a rim n tire meet to her....to no avail anyway or just make it a lot hard for her to do it
