    Default beadlock envy

    Are all steel wheels created equal?
    OK...I have beadlock envy.
    So I am drawn between buying these http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BLACK...item45f02676b0
    Or having one of my buddies weld some rings on for me.
    If I go with having my buddy weld em what steel wheels would you go with?
    What DIY kit would you go with and for what reasons?

    Seems to me having them welded on would be a bad idea, or I'm missing something. Probably lead to balance issues. IMO but I don't know for sure.

    I wouldn't go the DIY route, unless you have a pro weld them on. One little hole in the weld spells leak. I would drop the coin and get order some true beadlocks, such as Walker Evans, Trail Ready, or AEV (not necessarily in that order). I should be getting some Trail Readys when I redeploy this summer.
