Iam thinking of double beadlocking my wheels(15X10 Alumistars w/4in.BS)...........The only reason is Iam thinking of doing it-is because Iam tired of dealing with trying to get my radials mounted all the time & was told if I had "doubles"-I could mount & dismount tires myself. Especially since I have 4in.BS? If anyone could give me some advise on this-I'd appreciate it!

Oh-Will it affect the sidewalls of the tires? I currently run the Hoosier 275/60's w/glue & have been 1.20 60ft.-Dont wanna lose my 60ft!!!!!

Our kit run a diffrent inner lock kit to clear the rotors we have car out there that the beadlock sit on center with the rotor and clears with no problem. and a beadlock will stiffen up the side wall in most cases that helps guys out but in other cases u will have to adjust your tire psi from no beadlock to when running beadlock . thanks

Chris can you not run a 12" wheel with a 275?? I figured you had 12" wheels on your car.

Weld Racing will convert your Weld Racing wheels to double bead locks. You keep your SFI as well if you have the manufacter do the conversion.
