+1.....they remind me of ARP's and if they are stainless I don't thing they will be durable in the rocks + they seem to protrude alot. Why not use standard grade 8 bolts or carbon steel allen or torx heads? (I know they are rust prone but durable)

Yes these will be JK size wheels. We have not yet released pricing on the Borah wheel.

Dave,

  • In order to countersink, we would have had to make the ring thicker which just adds weight (and cost). There was no other advantage.
  • Instead, we went with a totally custom grade, 10.9 special bolt thats made just for us. The bolts have a long shoulder to prevent any stress risers in shear on the ring and are quite long, over 50mm long.
  • The 10.9 should take a ton of abuse with no issues.
  • We really needed external torque fastners, the internal fasteners would be too difficult to get the recommended torque, which has been increased over our old wheels.
  • The bolts in the photos are NOT the production bolts.

Basically everything about these new beadlocks is a 10x improvement on our old beadlocks. We've been working very diligently on wheels and constant improvement in the last 18 mo.

Dave, do you already know what colors you make these available in?
Will you offer different ring color options as well?

Well, as long as they come all matte black finish like the Saltas, I will already be very happy...

What was the pricing of the old beadlocks?

Also, do you know how much you expect the beadlock version to weigh?

I love the two tone of my '14 OEM Rubicon wheels matched with my granite Jeep. That's why I've kept them (and being rock-rashed) But this is the first wheel I've seen that seem better, obviously from a performance perspective, but also from an aesthetic perspective.
