i ordered my normal Classic IIs from discount, but i was getting tires too
a real bead lock *i believe* clamps the bead so it cant slip off, where as a simulated bead lock just has the ring and bolts it wont help keep a bead on if you air down..
an advantage to the simualted ones is that if your out wheeling, with the tires aired down or not, the ring will help protect the actual wheel if it slides along a rock or something
as for rust, i haven't had them long enough to tell you, i heard the salt and that good **** they put on the roads isnt great for em
R.I.P. Dirty Debby. I miss that truck
New truck sports a chrome "C" on the fenders.
