That about the same thing that I run and I love them. I would give Kurt (DIY4x) a chance to beat the price though.

OK, I guess I'm an idiot, but I could never understand how welding a ring on the outside of the wheel would allow you to clamp the bead. What am I missing.

You weld on a bolt ring, and then bolt the outer lip of your tire between the weld on ring and the bolt on ring.

The two rings sandwich the tire bead in there :D
So the welded ring goes inside the tire? (the only stupid question is one not answered. LOL)

Nail them down on the shipping and handling. Some of those outfits sell cheap then screw ya on the shipping.
Says free shipping. I was just wondering on the 24 bolt style vs. the 32 bolt style.

32 bolts take a LONG time to cinch down.:lame:


I would go with the 24. I know that 32 prolly is more protection, but 24 is prolly enuff!

I have 16 bolts in mine and I pop the heads off every now and then. 24 is probably enough. 2nd vote for DIY4x.

another vote for DIY4X.. he does whatever design you want as well... he has my ajs performance ones on his site.
I only wish he did yota stuff, I like all the products I have gotten from him, and wouldn't hesitate to buy more. PLUS, it IS important to support the vendors here.
