To increase the mobility of a wheeled vehicle operating in soft terrain such as sand, mud, or snow, it is necessary to increase the footprint of the tires. This is achieved by decreasing the tire's air pressure. This mobility is only achieved if the wheels are equipped with a tire bead locking device. Rock Monster's wheel design allows the use of internal beadlocks, keeping them street legal.
Double beadlocks. You gotta love being able to change tires with a large screwdriver.
The 4.65" backspacing is enough with 35's, but 37's will rub on the frame and control arm. I like 'em enough that I don't care.
They are heavy but will hold a tremendous amount of weight.
The TPMS is placed in the center of the rim. If you severely deflated and hit a rock full-on, you can crush your TPMS.
I prefer the subdued finish over the bright and garish beadlocks I've seen. These are working wheels, not show wheels. Regardless, I really like the spoke pattern.
The plastic stud covers are a pain to put on and take off. I've just left them off now. I have yet to bash a stud on a rock. I've heard of people pressing them out and installing them facing inwards. I haven't done that and I've heard it will interfere with big brake kits.
I would buy them again in a heart-beat.

5.0High dollar, High quality
Amazing wheel but they know it. Although expensive the wheel is exactly what you would expect if you are shelling out money like this.

Having run an external bead lock for many years I wasn't sure what to expect with these Hutchison wheels that lock internally. They work not only as good but better than I could have ever hoped. They look great and have held up really well. I would definitely recommend these wheels.
The weight is this wheel is 40 lbs each. Thank you for the question.

Hi, I am not certain on what Bolt pattern I have… My Jeep is a 1995 YJ Wrangler SE, and I would like to purchase these Hutchinson Beadlocks. It is not possible for me to measure the distance of the bolts (not sure on that)

This is the correct wheel and lug pattern for your vehicle application. Thank you for the question.
