Quality of these were awesome and there are a ton of people that have purchased them.
I got my beadlocks with hardware shipped to my house for 260. What was shipping on your rings?

About a year and a half ago. If your a pirate member is best to contact them through pirate as they usually give pirate only deals.

Dont use the cheap rubber valve stems next time. Id put money on it that the nicer metal stems and beadlock rings would have saved you from that situation.

Its just one of those overlooked parts that can be a big deal when it fails.

I know when I finally weld my beadlocks on, Im going to be welding up the valve stem hole and redrilling it farther in the wheel like so. it will make it easier to air up with the rings on there.

Can you just drill the hole like normal? I will have to do this because I have some 5/8" valve stems that are the brass style with a bend and are longer. The crager soft 8s come with a 1/2" hole.

Anyone confirm that its just a normal hole?

thos big 3/8" brass ones are pretty good. we used to put those on bobcats when we would change those tires. so you know they will take a beating. my only advice is if you want to move the valvestem, dont do the "ill do it some other time" thing.....cuz you wont.

from the valve stems I saw yesterday at the local tire shop they should work out great. I just hope there is enough flat surface there to bore the hole and mount the stem.
