That would be cool. I think they will look good on your T4 as is though.. I wouldn't bother with doing anything to the rings.. They just get scratched up with where we ride..

No cleaned up poser shots yet.  Just got finished with them and went to move hay.  Here are some pictures that Kelly and Hannah took while riding around me on the tractor today.  I must say though VERY time consuming, beadlocks are the easiest set of wheels I have ever put tires on.

One thing I've learned about B-Locs Mike........If they start leaking, the rings are too tight. You would think "That don't make sense" but it does!!!!

I don't know if those rims came with instructions or not, But the bolts for the ring are suppose to be torqued to 10ft/lbs and your suppose to tighten them in a criss cross pattern. I looked it up on their site when I ordered mine since it seems all beadlocks have different torque specs...

Thanks guys! No instructions. I just hit them in a cross-cross with the air ratchet and then tightened them by hand with a stubby ratchet. I will put the torque on them and see what I've got when I get back to the shop. I was amazed how easy they were. Hopefully they will last longer than the stockers. Any one need a blingy spare? lol!

Of course you tighten them in a criss-cross pattern. Sheesh......

You say that but I've first hand seen guys go all the way around in order checking that their bolts were tight before hitting the trail. I myself have never owned bead locks thats why i looked up the mounting instructions. I've also never broke the bead on a tire I just got bead locks cause they look cool. I'm sure ill still run 12 pounds of air anyway.

I got them to ease my pain when mounting tires,(and not pay to get them mounted) man, so easy!!!! I understand what you're say'in Will.....some people don't deserve them!!!!!! I learned to criss-cross bolts when I was 6......... Over-tighten the rings, they will leak......

Easy mounting is right. After the fiasco I went through taking the tires off the stock wheels I think I will always have beadlocks going forward. Just so easy.

Same here Will. I think I will run higher than normal pressure, probably around 12-15. Normal pressure for 2.0's is zero....lol!
