Fourtrecks "Rock Slidder Washers."

Look interesting enough to buy some but wanted to know if anyone has any previous experience with them.

I've always thought about making something that protects the bolts but just haven't yet. The only issue I can see those possibly having is them getting chewed to the point you can't get the socket onto the bolt head anymore. There doesn't seem to be much breathing room in that area but who knows, they may hold up fine...?

Yeah I agree with this. I'd like to see a good 3/16" collar around the bolt head. Those look a little thin in that area.

They are like sliders for the boltheads. It keeps the heads from getting damage when they strike rocks.

Ordered five pair so time will tell, worst case is I use a sawsall to remove them if damaged.

They are mainly used on beadlocks. Beadlocks have anywhere from like 15-40 bolts around the rim. And we all know beadlocks get destroyed in the rocks, especially their bolts sticking out.
