PostSubject: Now that I broke a rim.   Tue Jun 12, 2012 7:23 am

So, I know I got input from a number of you guys Sunday after we got back to camp. For those that don't know I took the YJ thru Bunny after Chuck Ryan and Chris did. I made it thru with no issue till the exit. I got pinched so hard that I needed two winch lines to get out. I made it out in the end with a bent up tail gate and a chunk missing from my rear passenger rim. So know I'm faced with, how to fix this? Bite the bullet and buy some nice aluminum beadlocks, buy steel beadlocks or forget about the beadlocks and get some regular rims? Please any opinions/advise is welcome. Anything from brands to stay away from to dealers I want to check with. Keep in mind the YJ is still street legal and I have no intentions of changing that. Thanks to Ryan, Chis and Chuck for the peer pressure to run Bunny and the help to get me out of that tight spot. I loved every minute.

If you wheeled regularly and had an issue with loosing the bead then I would recommend making the investment in beadlocks. Since you wheel just once a year or so then I'd say just replace the busted rim and call it a day.
