    Got 4 of the 5 Tibus beadlock wheels I ordered today. Not sure what the story is there but I emailed the vendor to find out. Those are some serious work to install, unlike the Hutchinson's they don't have 3 studs that are longer to help get the bead starting to come together. This means without some means of squeezing the two sides together you are going to have a hard time patching or swapping a wheel in the field. If I had to I think I would end up having to lay the wheel under my truck, then place a jack on top of it to press the top down onto the studs.


    Overall though, I'm very happy with the assembly process, they just really should have put the 3 longer studs in. I'll probably try to pickup a few clamps to stick through the holes in the wheel and help pull the face close enough to start threading the nuts onto the studs.


    Only had strength in my hand to do one tonight, but over the next few days I'll get the rest of them together.

    Once I finished in the dark, I decided I would settle for any good source of light

    I need to head to Boulder to get the tires balanced Friday, the tires are terribly out of balance, just driving on pavement at 20mph feels like I'm on washboard.

    There is definitely more rubbing that I had hoped for. When I am done with these tires I'll likely go with 37". They told me the kit was designed for 38.5" tires, I am running 38" tires (37.7" actual size) Yet still there is a fair bit of rubbing on all four corners. I don't think it's enough I would take these 38" tires off and sell them, but doubtful I'd purchase another set unless the larger fender flares really do fix everything up. Either way, for the next month or two until they arrive I am going to be making some rubbing noises on the trail. Not an issue around town though which is nice.

    Can always use some bump stops or limit straps if desired to stop the rubbing.

    I considered bump stops. How could I use limit straps for that?

    I'll see how terrible it is at Kelly Flats Saturday, if it really annoys me I'll definitely look into doing something about it.

    Have you seen what the chutes did to my silver Rover? I'm going to pass on that one for now.

    I got the big vote of approval from my wife, she said after seeing today's pics "Funny how after all of that work it finally looks like it was always meant to be this way".

    "I considered bump stops. How could I use limit straps for that?"

    I am assuming its solid axle (to the portal gear reduction ends of course). Limiting how far one side can droop with a strap will also limit how far the opposite can come up. If it only rubs at full stuff, which generally cannot occur on a solid axle without the opposite drooping, then limit straps can help. If it rubs at more moderate spring compression, such as when both ends are compressing springs, then the straps won't help - only bumpstops will do - but if that is the case, then you probably have more significant issues than just 'a bit of rubbing,' such as just too big a tire for the lift, or too soft a spring. If its IFS, then never mind on any of this...

    Thanks for explaining that. It is solid axles, so I think that would work.
