good luck getting any brand new, the plant that produces them shut down and now staun USA is in the middle of getting the product re produced in their plant.


I've asked everywhere to find any stauns no one can get them, go with inner air lock internal locks. Baja north in kamloops is a dealer for them quoted me 650 for a set of 15x7" shipped to the lower mainland.

I choose to go with a DIY beadlock due to the price would be cheaper.

That would explain why the Staun website doesn't work then.

Balancing is kind of a deciding factor for me. I daily drive my Heep on the hwy. I don't want the fillings shaken outta my teeth.

Thanks for the link btw.

I dunno who would wanna use metal BB's they would end up ripping in the bag and chances are damage the valve stem and rust if they sat for a period of time, I know some are using golf balls believe it or not.

I don't suggest it


the antifreeze/water mix guys have been running in cone dodgers for a long time, it would work in a powder coated rim but if you blow a beat you gotta re fill.

Personally If I had the extra power and weight wasn't a concern I'd run re centered H1's with PVC/tube inserts, but the Suzuki doesn't have the heart for that.

i used stauns in my 38in 15s and i hated them. i like to air down my tires and beat my truck but i was allways blowing the bladders out of them i had them for less then 1year and i put 3 bladders in. a buddy has them on his 46in claws and he doesnt have any problems with them. so it depends on the tire size and how u run ir tires
