yea i want to do highway so probably wont do hummer wheels....
and can you explain PVC inserts/ double beadlocks?
The hummer wheels are 2 pieces that bolt together allowing you to easily mount tires yourself and also allowing a pipe to be placed between the wheel halves. The PVC inserts are just a piece of PVC pipe that fits snugly around the rim between the 2 tire beads. When the wheels are bolted together the PVC sandwiches both beads to the inner and outer bead of the wheel. Since both beads are locked in place it is a true double beadlock. Aftermarket beadlocks and DIY weld on beadlocks are only a single beadlock, locking only the outer bead of the tire.
You can get the idea on my thread here of 2 different sets of Hummer wheels I built. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164206
