Instead of beadlocks, if your having a problem keeping a bead when aired down, try different tires, some that have only a 2ply sidewall, they will squish more without having to air down to like 4psi! Then, you can air back up when driving home! Beadlocks are designed for offroad use only. Most states (whether the beadlocks are DOT approved or not) do not allow beadlocks. Look into your local DMV first. If you just want the beadlock look, there are plenty of fake beadlock wheels out there that look great. Beadlocks weight more, are not as safe, and are very expensive. They are recommended usually for vehicles pushing 500+ horsepower, or for hardcore offroad ONLY rockcrawlers or trophy trucks. Chances are, if you need beadlocks, your truck should be trailered to and from wherever you go wheeling.
