What size beadlocks???

I'm running 37x13.5 R17 Pitbull rockers on H2 rims.

I'm looking to go to beadlocks. What width rim should I order to properly fit these tires???

Thanks for your help

Buy a set of internal beadlocks and a set of rock rings for the H2's.

I am running 16" wide LTBs on 8" rims. The DIY beadlock kit adds about .75 so my rims are 8.75. I have had no issues and it doesn't look odd. But even though the tire says 16" wide I don't think measures near that.

That sounds like way too much tire for that rim. How long have you been running these?

2-3yrs.

Tires say 16, but don't look anywhere near 16. They don't balloon.

I just came across a set of beadlocks im going to put on my jeep they are 10" rims and im going to use a 13.5 wide tire. I hope that it works OK for me. It seems kinda wide for that tire.

We will see how it works out I guess.

So a 10" or a 12" would work fine then???

Is there any advantage to going with a smaller width rim?
