This is my first time with beadlock tires. I had a Teryx 800 for 5 years with 2 sets of non beadlock tires and never had a problem. Looking at gets a extra set of rims/tires to swap around and just wondering if I need the extra cost of beadlock rims? Your thoughts gents.

The only real advantage on UTV's is mounting, field service and they help keep junk out of the bead. UTV/ATV tires hold the bead very well and you probably wouldn't have any issue's with loosing beads at any pressure high enough to prevent pinch flats.

If you're only going to buy rims once, why go with an inferior category? You might not have issues with non-beadlock rims at low pressure, but you definitely won't with beadlocks.

In my opinion, there's No question about it, beadlocks. If you have ever popped a bead on the trail an had to jack ur machine up and use a strap around the center of a tire an a portable pump to try an pop the bead back on, save your self alot of time and aggravation. We have done this twice on a Honda talon in our group. Once on a tip over an the other time he was going up a rutted, rocky trail an it was off when he got to the top.

Look at any serious off road , or sand truck. They all have beadlocks....

Tusk makes some good beadlocks for a decent price. Worth a look.
