Its either bead locks, or fully hydraulic steering.. one of them you can't find on the books for officially being illegal.
i definitely understand why they try to keep beadlocks off the road. The general population is horrible at tire and wheel stuff. atleast in my experience. I get people come in all the time who are running 12 psi in their cars. lots of people running on steel too. Its scary to think these people are driving next to me on the road. rims look good though!

My only problem is the price, I bought all 4 of my weld on locks for a little more then the price of one staun. And then I would have to buy rim stiffeners on top of the stauns.

Those were the beadlocks they showed on Xtreme.

But I agree them things is pricy. Worth it, cause it is a double bead lock, not just the outer one. I think Petersons did a review on them, and loved them.

well if you buy soft 8s then the rings then repaint or powered coat then you are around 100 a wheel plus the price to have them welded on.


how does that compare to a bead lock rim?

I paid 50 dollars a rim, plus 45 per rim for rings and bolts. thats 95 a rim and I do my own welding and the rings double as rim stiffeners.

The main benefit of the Staun is they are easy to balance since theres nothing on the exterior of the rim
