HI
you have to follow all intructions for installing yourself your bead lock AND YOU HAVE TO CHECK REGULARY THE TORQUE OF ALL BOLT WHO MAINTAIN THE BEAD LOCK IN PLACE ON YOURS WHEELS.
THIS IS ONE REASON WHY BEAD LOCK WHEELS ARE NOT DOT. people forget to TORK ALL BOLT REGULARY AN THESE CAN CAUSE AN ISSUE IN DEFLATE TIRE ON HYWAY. FOR THESE REASON THE BEST THING IS TO MOUNT YOUR TIRE ANS BEADLOCK YOURSELF AND USE THE SCHEME PATERN TO TORK EACH BOLT AT THE SPCIFICATION FROM THE WHEELS MANUFACTURER. FOR THE POLICE I AM NOT SHURE THEY CAN MAKE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEAD LOCK OR NOT BUT DO'NT BE INVOLVE IN A ACCIDENT YO CAN HAVE LOT OF PROBLEM.

Sasquatch wheels are all black
Only the FE and Wildtrack wheels are all black with black equity rings. All other models with Sasquatch are all black with a Warm allow beauty ring. (Silver)

The only reason to use bead lock wheels is if you're going to run under 16-18 psi. This keeps the bead of the tire in contact with the wheel......Unless your Bronco is going to be exclusively off roar....not needed, unless you buy another set of wheels and tires for street use only

A little late to the conversation. From that cutaway, it appears that the beadlock configuration will add about .5" inch to wheel width. This should allow for a wider tire to be run as well.

I mean with an 8 or 8.5 wheel width how much over 12.5 would one need to go?

On a non bead lock, half an inch makes some difference. On a bead lock it’s more width plus clamping the bead.

If primarily a road vehicle, I probably wouldn’t screw around with it.

If 50% or more off-road, makes a big differnce.

I’m coming from a rock crawling perspective. If you only have 35s, you’re going to be limited on what you can do. (Ideally you’d have 39-42s.) A 37X12.50 BFG Krawler’s MIN wheel width is 8.5.

This matters.

Related question:
What is a beauty ring and is it easily replaceable?

I'm going sasquatch but not going to beadlock it. The "warm alloy" look is not for me and I'm hoping the all black like the Wildtrack will be available for purchase.
Yes, you will be able to purchase different coloured beauty rings for your rims. They are shown in the Ford Accessory listings.
