    Oh yeah, Rogue poster boy for most of the equipment. Just picked up a Echo Bike and it’s awesome/sucks at the same time.

    I had previously ordered some hardware just to have so went ahead and replaced it. Filled it up to 35psi and snooped for leaks. No issues then drove it around for a bit and rechecked.

    Have 2 other wheels missing 2 bolts so going to monitor it while I order more hardware and spacers.

    I had been driving with the tires around 20-25psi on the road but thinking of bumping that up to 30-33 to limit the amount of deflection and pushing on the wheel.

    You should run your GoPro to film it when it blows. Will be cool.

    ( ok I did giggle when I read that)


    I think the TR bolts are one time use IIRC. And it def looks like a spacer should have been used. That's the only downside I saw with the TR vs the ATX wheels - the ring bolt size and the thickness of the rings. The ATX versions are so much more stout.

    Yeah should have clarified not going any long distances except within a mile or so at the house. It’s not my DD.

    That would be a hell of a ride if it were to blow...

    Ordered the rings so we’ll see if that solves the issue and eliminates that space. If not I’ll probably pull the trigger on some ATXs I think they look better too.

    Here’s a good one: (stole from the internet)
    IMG_1235.JPG

    When I bought my Methods, I put the ring on and ran in a few bolts before I mounted the tires, and they seemed to bottom out right when the bolt was all the way screwed in and the ring was tight to the wheel. I measured the bolt and and the depth of the hole and they are almost identical. Then I bought the 3/16” aluminum spacers and obviously had no problem. Maybe your bolts were shearing because they were bottoming out in the hole? Either way, it sounds like the spacers will do the trick for that bigger bead.

    Replaced all the hardware and installed spacers. The ring seemed to sit better with the spacers in.

    IMG_1032.jpgI’ll monitor them but hopefully this solves the issue.

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.
