I would like to get some feedback from you guys as to who makes a good strong 14" beadlock from your experience.

I currently have 14" ITP beadlocks and seem to destroy at least one everytime I go out. I have thought of trying to weld a reinforcement ring on the inner bead, but not sure about the cast wheels as a whole. As of today I have 1 bent inner bead and 3 wheels with portions of the inner bead totally ripped off. I run them on my R1 rhino, not sure if that's part of the problem.



Thanks

It's not just your R1 car that destroys the cast wheels, Mike.

I have replaced almost a dozen in the last two years at Pro Armor. I am not a fan of the ITP cast wheels after seeing how poorly they hold up.

I think the new Walkers might be the way to go.

I am totally on board with the new W.E.R. wheels for sure, just trying to see what others run, and how they like or dislike the performance and durability of different wheels.

I run American racing wheels. They are the outlaw II style. The are 14". My wheels are Ford Focus wheel patern. You could have a bead locked added to them and they are strong.. It's ment to hold up to a car not a big quad. I still think my BFG's are the only way to go on hard pack. I have never had a flat. Hundreds of miles in Mexico, ocotillo and local trails.
