To increase the mobility of a wheeled vehicle operating in soft terrain such as sand, mud, or snow, it is necessary to increase the footprint of the tires. This is achieved by decreasing the tires air pressure. This mobility is only achieved if the wheels are equipped with a tire bead locking device. Hutchinson's wheel design allows the use of internal beadlocks, keeping them street legal.
I use these on the Rubicon trail almost every weekend. They have saved my butt from not having a trail spare twice since you can drive them out without worrying about the tire coming off the rim
Are these the double bead lock wheels
