    You really need a second set of hands to help you out. Essentially, a 3rd screw driver to hold the seated bead in place while you work the rest of it in. There's nothing about this that's easy but it can be done.

    EDIT: I just re-read your post. If I'm understanding it better now and what I can tell you is that what you are seeing is totally normal for most every other bead lock wheel out there. That being said, we just torqued the bolts down, waited a bit and then re-torqued them, waited a bit and the re-torqued them again until they got down sitting flush and they did eventually get there but the following day.

    You're on the mark. After mounting the first tire I mistakenly concluded I would either need to machine some spacers or just exchange the tires for another brand. I opted for the latter but wish I would have seen this before. Not that the TrailGrapplers are a bad tire (this is my second set), I just heard glowing reviews and was looking forward to testing out the STTs. I'll be a little more persistent next time.

    Cindy is a great driver. If only I can get my wife to wheel. She is super afraid.
    She made it look like it was a breeze. Can't wait to get the stt pros

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
