    So I remember somewhere hearing that there is a diagram to get your own bead locks made. I can't find it so I ask "WHERE THE HECK IS IT?" I got some damn expensive 8 spoke steel rims with some nice surface rust that I heard or read were easy to convert. Anyone do this or do you need different rims to do it? Thanks.

    Thanks for the links. What about running them all around for daily driving? I only want to invest in one set of tires(35's) and I need the rig for getting around. I heard that they are illegal for street use but I don't think anyone around here would know any better anyhow. The 70 40 max's out at about 55mph so speed isn't a big deal. Maybe it is over kill for me right now. How much can you safely deflate and run in the snow with? Should probably get one project done first before starting another.......NAH.
