omf, and champion are here in riverside, CA area. a lot of people use both, and seem to be happy with them. i was told its not a good idea to inside beadlock a rim with a BS bigger then i think 3" because its a fuckin bitch to get the tire on. he said the single works fine unless your top fuel. im going to send mine in soon thats the research i have done on them. hope this helps.
Can someone please explain why the backspacing on the rim would have anything to do with mounting difficulties?
I used to set up beadlocked rims all the time. Set the tire on the ground flat, then shove the backside of the rim down into the tire. Use a wood handled hammer to work the bead up around the outside of the rim, and you're done.
Maybe I'm missing something, where in that equation does backspacing affect anything? Thanks...
It has more to do with the shape of the inner than the backspace. Long inners with a relatively flat side shape do not allow some of the stiff side wall (street radials in particular) tires to go over them. This can be overcome in most cases by just mounting them backwards.
