my 16" bead lock wheels..

hey guys
So around 2months ago I got a good deal on a set of steel *** bead lock wheels.
Things i liked about them:
They are black & gangster... the wider 8inch vs 7 looks nice.

Things i did not like:
They are So SO Heavy ! wow! they are catastrophically over weight for our trucks!
Basically since day One of having them on, I did not like how the truck road and handled and performed. poor mpgs too
So i never really got around to taking some good cleaned up pics.
But hear are some less then great shots,

Nice, i've got the exact same wheels. It looks cool if you reuse our stock hub caps.

another problem with faux beadlocks is that you'll get debris trapped behind the beadlock ring and it will bounce around in there.

I have that problem with mine, as well you can never get all the mud out of them. Problem being, after you have cleaned your truck and you go for a drive, mud splashes everywhere.
