    Pros: double beadlocks - locks both sides of tire to rim, cheap compared to alternatives, beefy, easy to mount/dismount tires
    Cons: HEAVY, 16.5 rim size severely limits tire choices, large amount of backspacing in stock form and may interfere with stock steering on knuckle and makes the hubs stick out making them vulnerable to damage, 8 bolt versions the lip bends easily - needs rockrings

    Here is some info on the sets I have built: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164206

    Agreed with the above. Pretty much needs to be re-centered to save your hubs. Recommend the 12 bolts. Another con - prone to leaks.

    I think I'm going to just do a cragar with a -22 offset and that shouldn't interfere that was my main concern.

    Pros: Looks cool

    Cons: you're stuck with military tires due to the 16.5" rim size
