    I have heard good things of Staun. But negative knowledge on the internals.

    been running 'em for a few years now. love 'em. have wheeled in Alaska at -30 at 0psi and not a single issue, never lost a bead, never spun a wheel in the tyre (I tried, I was kind of a cold weather test mule). totally invisible until they are needed...
    Can use ANY wheel, not illegal to run on street, true double beadlock and pretty reasonably priced compared to beadlocks.

    We sell 'em too by the way.

    I read on pirate (I think) the other day, that they are bad ju-ju... they put pressure on the sidewalls. the complaints were that it decreased sidewall flex, and as a result of that the sidewalls didn't wrap around rocks, just kind of pushed into them and tore

    The only negative I have heard is balance issues on the highway, but bear in mind that big off road tires are hard to ballance to begin with. One up side is that the Stauns give you run flat capability as well as act like a bead lock.

    thats what he was saying he liked. he likes to run as low as 8psi for a bigger footprint so it should help but also act as a run flat if anything happens

    the military hmmwv has an internal bead lock with the run flat, and no sidewall pressure.
    I am gonna figure out -how to cut off the run flat part and leave just the double bead lock?

    There are 4 of our club members that run Stauns. One had in his daily driver (now doing frame swap). I've never heard any issues from them, but they all are glad they got em. One member used to pop a bead every outing (pain in arse), hasn't had any issues since puttin on the Stauns.
