    Default Beadlocks Advice



    Howdy Howdy, So the winter upgrades is just starting. I have already ordered new hd tie rod ends from offroad design, Now beadlocks are next on the list. What companies do you suggest , steel or aluminum, etc etc. Rather spend more money once than deal with issues down the road. Thinking of going up to a 17 inch wheel as well. My tires are toast anyways and need replaced. I have been asking around and i have been hit up by a dealer for dirty life beadlocks thoughts? they look great to me so far and price is good. but again this is new territory for me. The blazer is not a daily.

    *edit* ended up going with trail ready bead locks due to back spacing.

    Ive been looking at inner air locks, they are internal bead locks and lock both beads. Would also probably help prevent tire pinching.

    I ran a set of those on a huge Jeep I had back in the day and they worked great. I would air down to low single digits for the dunes and never had a problem.
