    Not speaking of Quads wheel the Slicklock. I'm speaking of the listing for the new Borah in Quads 2017 catalog. They list both a real and faux beadlock Borah wheel. A little pricey though. I would have gone with the fake locks if they came out last fall I think over the Saltas...maybe. They do look good.

      I'm curious if there is a brake fitment guide available? One of those paper cutout guides to ensure wheels will fit over your brakes. I'm currently running Baer big brakes and I'm forced to run spacers with my current wheels.

        Our wheels were designed and engineered to work with our suspension and the Dynatrac ProGrip Kit. More information on that kit can be found here: https://www.dynatrac.com/review/product/list/id/12/

        Luckily we have a vehicle in the shop right now with the same brake kit. I am seeing if the shop can put it on a lift and remove the front tire so I can see if a Borah will mount up and have enough clearance.

          So they fit, but they are EXTREMELY tight. One small rock or debris gets lodged in there and the inside of the wheel will be all scratched up. See the third picture.

              Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah, that looks pretty tight. I'm currently running Savegres but needed a 1.5" spacer to make them work (plenty of clearance around the circumference but not on the backside of the face of the wheel). I may see how much clearance the Mopar beadlocks have... I'd much rather run the new Borahs though!

                Is that Jeep in the photo using Old Man Emu shocks? Is it an AEV build?

                  Chris, are you guys making the simulated beadlock wheel quadratec is showing?
                  If so do you know if the trim ring is flush with the tire? The mopar beadlock is a two function wheel but looks horrible in simulated position due to space between wheel n tire.

                    That Jeep is a black Double Cab Brute that a customer sent to us to do some mild upgrades to it. We put on the OME BP-51 shocks, the Baer brakes, an Alpine head unit (with a FLIR) and upgraded the driving light's to the ARB Intensity 21's.

                    I am not aware if AEV is changing out equipment from their AEV packages.

                      The AEV Wheel Quadratec is showing is our wheel. The Quadratec branded one is not ours. The simulated ring does fit very tightly against the wheel. I am trying to track down a wheel or photo that I can share. Stay tuned.

                        Here is the best picture I could get of the non-beadlock ring mounted on a tire. I can say it is fitted quiet well against the tire sidewall.

                          Chris, do you have any pictures of how the machined wheel looks mounted on a jeep?

                            I don't have any like that right now but as soon as we get our first shipment in we will have plenty of pictures that I will make sure to share!

                                Is the first week in April still the expected release date?
