    Re-selling tire advice (beadlocks to non-beadlocks)

    I am breaking down my tires and wheels today, prepping to sell my Coopers to our resident Meme King for the Pink Mobile.

    The beadlock ring on my Machetes has really done a number on the lip of the tire that would be sitting inside the lip of a non-beadlock wheel.

    My question is, will it still hold air in a regular wheel?

    I doubt it. Looks like the inner side of the tire creates the seal on the BL whereas on a STD wheel it seals on the outer side which is now imprinted with that pattern.

    Doesn't look like it would seal up to me.

    It might be ok. Only one way to find out! Make sure the bead area on the wheel is nice and clean. The tire actually seals around the inside portion of the bead. That's why the sometimes still hold air with mud and stick etc. in the outer portion of the bead. Might try some bead sealer on the waffled area or un-mixed Murphy's oil soap( aka murf ). Most tire stores that do commercial and giant tire should have it.

    edit my last comment.... I think it needs to seal where the bumps are.

    Just means bead locks are a justifiable upgrade now

    Have seen it before but tires were shot when we took them off so never tried to remount. Have seen it a lot on farm tires and log skidder tires. Guys used run bead welds to try to minimize slipping and lots of agg wheels are ribbed around the bead area also for the same reason. Only way to find out is mount one up and see.

    I could be way off base here.... but I think the tire seals in the Red circle where the "bead" is... so those small bumps still within the circle May be an issue since the surface area has been lessened... The area in the Green square might just build up more dirt when aired down...? That's a tough one.

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.
