so im runnin 36sxs on my ranger and am having nothing but problems with them , keep on goin flat leaking around the bead , keep popping them off on my tire machine and fixing them , i also cleaned up the bead on the rims with the grinder didnt help , so im tryin to decide weather to do with inner or outter beadlocks , what do you guys think pros cons ?

Stauns?

Well go for outer beadlocks first IMO. Your outer beads are going to see alot more abuse than the inner ones.

also depends on your truck? daily driving? outers are illegal and sometimes very hard to get to balance properly.

id say stauns or inner-air's are the way to go, just dont run them at 0 or ya might pop one.

and after seeing creeper locks leak, champion locks leak, etc...

trail-ready beadlocks are pretty shiny though[36]

Beadlocks hold the tire on the rim Inners are just double locks, locking both inside and outside. And I have blown an inner

Are they mounted on the proper width rim some tires are specific on what width they need to be.

Good point - my 33x12.5 tsl radials have to be on a 10" rim.

I never said you couldnt blow an inside one, just that the outer bead will see more abuse than the inner, naturally.

Sorry I guess I should have made that more clear...

I think he means, proper fitment. Alot of people do alot of things, doesn't make it right. a 12.5 will fit on on 8' rim no problem (mine are) but a "proper" fit would be to mount on a 10" rim, it would handle better on road, due to a larger foot print.

well with inners it wont stop leaks. all four of mine leak down slowly. I can take em off, clean the shit out of them, put em back on and no leaks, first time I go wheelin they leak again.

clean the tire bead, wire wheel the bead area on the wheel, dose the tire bead show any signs of cracking or tearing. roll the wheels with the tires off on smooth shop floor, check for slight bends in bead area, also grab a carpenters square, put it across the rim flanges to check if the wheel is corded. if wheels are ok, most of the time it`s a wheel issue.. get a beadsealer compound,, from a tire shop,, like a liquid rubber, paiint on a shit load to the bead area of the rim. most of the time that will do it for ya, if not.... industrial Stop Leak can be added, it is used in 10,000 otr tires and will not fuck the rubber like the shit u get in a can that has amoina in it,, that being said if you ever used that shit,, thats why your tire are fucked,, that shit eats away rubber. makes porus beads ect.

there ya go, wheel and tire school. [cheers]
