    Full float 8 lug beadlocks in 4.5 BS. what are my options? is Hutchinson the only DOT

    Hello,

    My options are extremely limited as I am from the tax capital of world ..Australia.
    8 lug jeeps aren't really a thing here, however I have some Teraflex 60's in full float to go on my jku with off the shelf wheels to test from shops or anyone to even sell 8 lug wheels with out importing them.
    My plan is to go go Hutchinson WA-1174 Bead lock rims, after 6 months of trying to get a real answer out of teraflex about the clearances of the new Delta brakes. i worked out the Hutchinson will just clear caliper to rim . 0.8mm in the 4.5BS model if anyone wants to know.. (I know i should run 3mm clearance and I will be later on)

    Are there any other DOT approved bead locks in 4.5in 8 lug?

    Trail Ready wheels are DOT stamped and you can get them in any backspacing you want.

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.
