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 wheels are one of the few DOT approved beadlock rims available. When it comes to airing down on the trail or to go over rocks, these wheels are awesome. They feature a dual beadlock design which makes airing down to 0 PSI easy and worry free.
One picture shows silver bolts and the others show black bolts. Which does this (Argent) wheel come with?
