I am pretty sure I want white rims for my bronco to match the white top ;)

they don’t make very many white rims for off-road application so I will probably purchase 1 of these 2 rims. Leaning to the black rhino ones but slightly worried about brakes over heating. Thoughts?

Those 2 piece, come with inserts?
Nevermind, saw your second post after the above...

Is nice that they are closer to hummers, without a bazillion beadlock bolts.
Not crazy about the extra long starting bolts, should have made them replaceable
after the halves get sucked in.

I assume since beadlock ring is flexible, don't have to account for different bead thicknesses.
Staz had to cut my ring a little thinner for 43 SX's, as the SX's run thicker everything, even side wall
I believe. That does bring up a question about that flexible inner ring. Seems like it would not put
as much pressure on bead, against opposite side, as a thick plastic ring would.

Also, when you do blow a tire, you can kiss that TPMS sensor goodbye driving on it flat. I guess at that point, who cares, except you have a nice crunched mess in there if you are going to field change to another tire. I only buy 4 beadlocks, and just keep extra tire on regular rim, but I don't live in area where you might drive hours to the trails either, so I don't even bring spare on the rig anymore. And I've only ever trashed one IROK sidewall to the point you couldn't fix it.

Had a customer do this little TPMS trick.

PVC or steel tube and end caps with a valve stem in one end. TPMS inside before sealing it up, inflate to desired pressure, Throw it under the seat. Swap wheels and tires whenever you want with regular valve stems. Never a problem.

only bad thing …...……...………. it looks like a pipe bomb !!! LOL

The rock monster wheels look great. They are extremely heavy. They do mot balance well.

Did not know that, I have never had them, just like them because of being DOT approved, most beadlocks are not and the state cops are picky around here. :)


edit: HEY the emojies are BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm just hoping the wheels on my F150 fit on the new Bronco. I'd like not to have to buy new wheels again!

It appears more likely the bolt pattern matches the Ranger 6x139.7 (6x5.5)

Bolt Pattern:
I scaled the 255/75R17 tire images to match the above dimensions, I then measured the bolt pattern. I looked at both the F-150 and Ranger bolt patterns for reference and find the bolt pattern matches the Ranger,6x139.7 (6x5.5).

Yeah I think my F150 is like 6 x 135mm.
