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.
These Hutchinson Beadlock wheels are the perfect fit for my CJ. The black finish looks great on my white Jeep and they perform like a dream. I can finally air down without worrying about popping a bead, then air up and drive home LEGALLY at the end of the day! I was a little leery at first due to the price, but I definitely made the right decision.
