Default Local performance shop that installs beadlock rims

Anyone know of a reputable shop?

I've heard Discount tire will not mount and or balance a beadlock rim

I believe beadlocks are technically illegal on the road

No actual specific law against them. Wheel just has to be DOT approved.

Mount the tires at home then have a shop balance them.

I mounted mine in the garage and then brought them to a shop to have them balanced

What’s the living room method?

Push the tire on the rim, throw the beads in, fill with air in the garage, and drive away

i can do them.

dont bother balancing them either. the first burnout you do, it will throw it out of wack.
slicks and DR's dont get balanced.

You can balance slicks and drag radials. Sometimes it can make a noticeable difference. The issue is with non beadlock wheels. With multiple launches, the tires will move on the wheel. So eventually they would have to be rebalanced.

On a beadlock wheel the tire will not move or will only move a small amount over a lot of launches. So rebalancing the tires isn't needed like on a standard wheel.


But ya, throw them on and try them. If you don't have a bad vibration from an imbalance you should be ok. It really comes down to how out of balance they are and at what speeds you drive at. The more out of balance they are and the higher speeds at which you drive will combine to make the imbalance more noticeable.

Track setup. Eventually will move to them permanently for street use. I just don't want bad vibration at 140 at the end of the trap.

My current 17's (non bead lock) move about 6-8" on the rim

I know my 20” DR’s moved about 4” when I aired down for one night of racing. I marked them before I started.
