    Watch Eddies video with Jet Li getting beadlocks, he used clamps to compress the tire - brilliant!!

    Yes I have watched it and it is a brilliant way. But I mounted mine back in December and had never mounted beadlocks before and used what I had laying around. The washers did work great though

    I actually just finished mounting all of mine with STT pros, I did use Eddies clamp idea and it worked out but I messed up on my first two and the screwdriver slipped and left a small gouge in the wheel hopefully it's not bad enough it will cause a leak. Did you have any issues with some of the nut inserts threading down with the Allen? it only happened on 2 of them with mine.

    I had several inserts on all wheels that threaded down, used a drop of red Loctite to hold them in proper position.

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.
