Beadlockers

Post by Sweetlips »

Gents

Apparently there are quite a few people selling beadlocker rims.

I know it might not even be necessary to have them fitted but its a case of damn they look good :biggrin:

So of what i have seen and heard, a few of them seem to be fairly week and deform under the weight of the Patrol but what do you guys think of these?

It has 2 year warranty plus a load rating of 1200kg per wheel.

Would it be suitable for the Patrol?

Never heard of these guys, but I also like the look of a beadlocked rim. Those look almost like a standard A-Line steel rim with the beadlock system fitted. Whats the pricing like?

Cedric the 16" are R2360 and the 17' are R 2700. I reckon that's a reasonable price.

In my experience A-line / duster basic steel rims are not strong enough for Patrols. I've had trouble before with out-of-round, impossible balancing, and deformation under working load conditions. Fine if you got a patrol wagon that hardly sees a load or tough trails, but when it's working hard, on rough ground, like my rigged patrol bakkie, with a full load, i don't advise it.

Patrol steel rims, and cruiser steel rims, are MUCH stronger than a-lines/ dusters, despite visual appearances.

So whilst i'm a advocate for bead-locks, just make sure they not re-welded cheapies. Also, expect difficulties in balancing regardless. Patrols with wobbles at 90km/h are almost always due to improper balancing (yes, panhard bushes,kingpins etc etc must also be considered), and getting them to spin the rim in the tyre to optimise and then balance, is the best way to go, rather than keep throwing more lead on the side, even more-so with beadlocks.

One thing I did notice was the weight rating was 1,2 ton per rim instead of the 850kg of an aluminium rim.
Way more than the pro white type steelies.

Peter that being said, does that mean that is seems to be a good alternative? Im just not sure where else to get proper steelies, 16s or 17s for the Patrols that can be converted into beadlocks.

Russ, the guy did mention that balancing would be a challenge and that most of the wheels are being manufactured for those challenge rigs so i would think that it should be suitable for a Patrol.

Malcolm these seem to be the same rims but from a different supplier or am i mistaken. Both have a load capacity of 1200kg. Just not sure what is the CB of the other one.
