    why would you buy a beadlock wheel if you dont want the beadlock?

    just get the regular enduro wheel... they beadlocks are like $350 per wheel

    Part of the rim, yes. Real beadlock, no. Real beadlocks have a lot more bolts/nuts holding it in place.

    It's a fake beadlock but yes it's on there to make it look like it's real .. I wanted to know if you can take it off and just put the screws back in the wheel Not sure how that Beadlock would look on a Tacoma ... Or if any of you seen them on Tacoma

    I was referring to this wheel [​IMG] which I thought you were responding to saying it was a real beadlock.


    I'm fairly certain you can take that ring off. I'd call the manufacture and ask.

    It is not a real beadlock. The ring is part of the rim but it doesn't not lock the bead in place there for it's not a beadlock. I'm not sure you know how a beadlock functions.

    It's a simulated beadlock. That means they make it look like a beadlock with the ring but it serves no real purpose. It's still not a real beadlock. It doesn't clamp the bead to the rim.

    You can take it off and paint/powder coat it but you'll have groves in the wheel where the ring should go if you leave it out.
