Acouple of years back, I had tacoed a rear rim at around midnite out in Ocotillo Wells and the wheel was all tore to chit but my beadlocks kept the tire on for me to get back to camp which was a 15 mile ride and was able to do 25-30 MPH also.
Since then I have been impressed with beadlocks and also want to get a set for my sand tires so I can air down a bit more and not have to worry about popping a bead cus I have seen peeps pop beads out in glamis.
OMF has a sample of one of their rims that got annihilated on a wreak and still keep the tire hugged on! I believe they bring that along to display on there booth at the off road shows.

Thanks for the replys. I am just going to order the 12" tires and then I can upgrade to beadlocks if I so choose. I was thinking about getting the 14" version and didn't want to order rims without beadlocks and then regret the purchase. It sounds to me in my research that these tires (Pitbull Growler UBER *8 PLy ) have a stiff sidewall so "normal" pressure shouldn't lead to rolling beads often. I'm thinking about running in the KOH stock class in February. The YouTube videos look awesome! Thanks for all the help. -- John
Now that you thru the KOH into the equation - I would strongly consider running beadlocks cus that place is rock central and that would suck to be down over a busted bead or a flat. I would think they would be able to take care of you within a month....
