Default beadlock bolts and stems ...

On the Pintler beadlocks, what's is the bolt size (24 bolts on beadlocks) that keep the ring in place?

Also, can anyone point me to the exact stems that work w/ these beadlocks?

Ok, how about just an answer on the bolt sizes as nothing I have fits them.

5/16-18, we do sell a hardware kit to replace all the bolts.

Any rubber stems or TPMS stems should work fine.

That's confusing, I called in and the phone guys said the same thing. It's 3/16. Unless I'm reading that wrong (-18?). Does this kit replace the bolts with a different type of bolt? I'm going to need more bolts.

These allen type bolts are terrible, stripped a few. The allen sockets stick terribly into the bolt after torque'ing and a wiggle to get it out just isn't right. I bought the entire socket set cause I couldn't get an answer and 3/16 was the best fit.

You ask what type of bolt the rings take. I'm guessing they are 5/16 NF. The 18 stands for threads per inch.

3/16 is probably the allan head that fits the bolt.

Ah, ok, that makes sense then, my bad on my explaining. Is there some sort of specific screw spec other than 5/16-18 that I'd need to know to replace these (material)?

Also, is there a link to this hardware replacement kit so I can see what it contains?

I just used grade 8 bolts when I replaced mine. You can use Allen head or hex head bolts.

Since I have used both on their beadlocks, I would say the change to Allen head bolts is a good change. The hex head bolts had their issues as well. You needed a thin wall socket otherwise the socket would stick in the relief cut.

I wonder why they just didn't make the relief cut wider. Either way, sockets still stick. Such is life.

Anyone know of the link for the replacement kit? I haven't found it yet.

I don't have a link to the hardware kit but the part number is 90306006AB

The last time I ordered them they were $8.99 each. The kit contains 24 Allen head bolts and 24 washers.
