What do you mean by mounted? Are the wheels already beadlocks or are you converting them to beadlocks? If you have real beadlocks and need the tires put on, Michiana AutoPros can do it or you can ask Bondo, I think he did his....

Tyler,

Bead lock rims are actually very easy to deal with. The two key parts of traditional bead lock wheels, even torque on the ring bolts, and trying to get them balanced can be very, very difficult. I'd be heppy to show you how to mount them, but you will have to have Discount Tire or someone else balance them. Also, I'm not sure what beadlocks your buying (or bought) but I think there are only 1 or 2 manufactures that actually build a D.O.T. approved beadlock wheel - just in case you plan on driving them on the street, and off road, etc...

If you dont have this resolved yet, I'd be happy to help you out.

Jeff

Thanks Jeff! I already have had them done. The wheels are for paddle tires so they won't be on the road. I would like to learn how to do it sometime though!
