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.
Hutchinson Beadlock wheels are great for a weekend warrior like me. The D.O.T. legal beadlock means I can drive on these all week with peace of mind that I am not breaking the law. On the weekend I can air down and hit trails that were untouchable with my old, non-beadlock wheels. The argent finish is awesome, not too light and not too dark. Internal beadlock wheels are a necessity for anyone who likes to wheel their daily driver.
