Question Beadlock hardware ??

Whats the better choice ?

5/16 x1 beadlock bolts

1. grade 8 yellow zinc

2. grade 5 zinc plated

3. 18.8 stainless


max torque is only 20lbs so i dont believe strength to be a concern

my thoughts are whats best for corrosion resistance

20lbs isn't much, but from my experience... Stay away from stainless bolts, threads are brittle, you'll end up replacing broken ones over time, and there expensive

I'd personally buy a box or grade 8, pretty good corrosion resistance, even better if you use anti sieze

Stainless the threads will probably pile up on themselves and get seized/melted together

What I did with my bead locks was put a bead of silicone on the bead of the tire before bolting the outter ring on to help keep it from leaking, worked really good too,
