    My 2020 ORDC Taco is basically a road queen (stock, no lift), as I rarely off road but may get to play in some sand this summer. Also, I live in the Chicago area and in the winter here, there is more salt on the road than asphalt, as we all know salt is corrosive.

    After seeing some other Quicksands with bronze wheels, I am interested in adding Method 305 NV beadlock rims (Bronze) to my stock tires. I will upgrade tires later. I did scroll through some threads but did not find definitive answers. I hope to $timulate the economy. Here goes;

    1. For those with the outer rim bolts, how do they hold up..degrade over time? (yes, eventually, I assume). My biggest fear is having a nice looking wheel with a bunch of rusted bolts (First world problem, I know, but rims ain't cheap). I believe the bolts are aesthetic but replaceable. I do take extremely good care of my truck and have it washed regularly due to the winter salting. I think I read the outer bolts can be powder coated or go with nylon?

    2. The Method wheels are 16x8, (0 offset), current wheels 16x7 (0 offset). I read my current 265/70 R16 tire will fit newer rim without issue. But if that is incorrect, please inform.

    3. Will the TPMS transfer to the wider wheels or should I just bite the bullet and add new, regardless? Are there any hazards of using existing if they work?

    I have a few other questions relative to rotation and alignment but will research it first.

    If you don’t offroad on a regular basis would not waste the $$$ on real bead locks just for the looks. Plenty of fake ones you can choose from plus use the saved money towards new tires.

    Thanks gang, for the feedback, most appreciated! Then, are the beadlocks I'm looking at functional, as in, protection and do they come off with the bolts removed? I'm in it for the aesthetic aspect but would want a decent rim.

    No they are not functional.

    Most non functional “street lock” wheels don’t have replaceable bolts though. Probably where the confusion is coming from.

    Thanks, I was a bit confused but really like the looks. I didn't think they were functional but then again....:rolleyes:
