Beadlock Conversion on Factory RZR Wheels

Hey Everyone,
We've been converting more and more of the factory aluminum wheels to a beadlocks, so we have come up with a special for it that we'd like to share with members of the forum. You send your wheels in (you cover the shipping of the wheels to our location), and we'll convert all four with our scalloped style polished beadlock, and ship them back to you (in the continental USA) for $549.95 total. We can also powder coat the beadlock ring for an additional $9.95 per ring, and powder coating the rim is $44.95 per rim.

Converting the factory wheel allows you to keep the same factory offset while adding beadlocks without breaking the bank, so when it comes to bang for your buck this is one of the best deals out there! I have attached a few pics of some we have done in the past.

Post, PM, call, or email me for details.

Thanks,
Bones

Re: Beadlock Conversion on Factory RZR Wheels

Are you able to do other type of UTV aluminum wheels and not just factory wheels? Very innovative idea BTW....

Absolutely. We commonly beadlock DWT and ITP wheels, but have also done Maxxis, Vision, MSA, and many other brands. There are some limitations, but for the most part we can convert almost any exisitng aluminum wheel to a beadlock. If you don't want to send your wheel in for the conversion we can also provide you with a new wheel complete with the beadlock.

Re: Beadlock Conversion on Factory RZR Wheels

This thread is just what I was getting ready to search for. Great price but I have some questions.

Are the Polaris wheels with the OMF going to survive a beating? I am pretty rough on stuff.

If this is good i will probably end up sending them to you.

Great question. The Polaris wheel is a good wheel to start with, but like any wheel out there it does have it's downsides. The factory wheel is a cast aluminum wheel, and generally with a cast wheel when you push it to it's limit it will simply break. After adding the beadlock the weak link on the factory wheel is the inside lip. There is just very little structure to the lip, so if you were to hit it hard enough you would crack the edge. I haven't had anyone yet who has done that, but it really is just a matter of time. With that said though, you will ultiamtely damage anything if you push it far enough, so the trick is just not to abuse your wheels if you don't have to.

Exactly what happened to mine, running hard through some rock, caught the inside edge and clipped a rock. Didn't find it flat until the next morning, when I tried to inflate heard the leak and found this crack on the inside rear bead

Great example, thank you so much for sharing that with us. For what it's worth that crack is relatively mild in comparison to what we've seen, and it can probably be welded up if necessary. Might not be worth it once you figure the shipping and repair cost, but it is an option.

Thanks again for posting that pic!

Take care,
Bones

Re: Beadlock Conversion on Factory RZR Wheels

This came off my S and despite this crack on the factory cast wheel I still think having the RZR4 wheels bead-locked is a great option
