    Dirtylife Beadlock Wheels

    Just seen these wheels online and wondered if anyone on here has tried them out ? Look nice but will they perform like the KMC Machettes ?

    Milestar Patagonia M/T 35"
    EVO Enforcer 3"
    EVO Boatside Bombers
    EVO ProTek Skids
    EVO Tire Carrier

    Rolling motion, ideally on vehicle 4 will roll in unison.

    In term of the beadlock and bolts holding up to rocks and of course cheap materials not holding up. As always you get what you pay for and these seem awfully cheap.

    I know lots of folks running them now. None have had any issues yet but it's too soon to tell long term. My guess is being new they put out extremely competitive pricing to get a name. I bet price rises over time as they start becoming known.

    I have them, I really like them. I really like the prices even more. I can’t speak for durability because I’ve had them for all of 3 weeks. Ask me in a couple years haha.

    Mr. Mud,

    Would be so kind as to post a picture of your wheels. The ones I have found online appear to be computer generated or heavily edited.

    Thanks

    Thank you! They look very nice.

    Do the beadlock bolts thread into the aluminum like methods or do they have steel insterts like ATX?

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.
