    DirtyLife wheels have the same functionality as well, can be used in a bead mount with a faux plastic ring, or a true beadlock mount. I may be leaning towards them myself, as I really like their wheel designs. I wouldn't be surprised if one company has a patent on the double mount wheel design and makes all these wheels under different names.

    Cool looking wheel. Hard to tell from the site, but those ring bolts appear to stick out beyond the ring. Something to consider/confirm if you do pull the trigger.

    XD has some awesome new wheels that could sport a ring guard option, but they donít. Iím afraid of messing up the wheel, but not sure I need the true beadlock. My JK has done great with ring guard. And saved some $$$ over true beadlocks.

    If you're looking for something more economical, Vision has a few good choices such as the Nemesis, Creep, and Se7en. The Nemesis uses a polymer material ring whereas the Se7en and Creep use a metal ring.
    Thanks for the response. Se7en looks pretty good, I assume you can buy a replacement ring?

    I donít believe they do but Iíll email them and ask. Iím planning on running the faux beadlock just to prevent curbing the wheels and off-road damage. I daily drive my Jeep and am a bit weary of running a beadlock on the road, especially since I donít have the time to commit to maintaining them.

    Be sure to post up what they say about those bolts.

    I hear you on the beadlocks. Iím torn a bit. Love the machetes. But not sure I ďneedĒ beadlocks.

    Will you guys be carrying DirtyLife wheels? Both my Jeeps have had wheels/tires from you guys, and I'd love to keep that going.

    That's awesome to hear - thank you for your continued support!

    As far as I know, there are no plans to offer Dirty LIfe wheels, but I'll forward this to our marketing team to see if this is a brand we can special order

    So I got a reply. They said on the real rock ring they are recessed, on the faux ring, they protrude ever so slightly, but said that you can buy shorter hardware to sink them in.
