I like the look of the rims in black. PS; Pitbulls are pretty much impossible to dismount from those without a tire bead slidehammer and a couple chunks of 2x4.

Good. That was the kind of sealing I was looking for after going to a normal headlock after my H1 wheels. Got tired of burping air from the inner bead.

Back half is stock, added a complete front section and spreaders. The front is also tied into the frame. I've had the steel a couple different times to redo the entire cage but always used it for other (paying) projects. Also want to do new seats and cage at the same time.

I ran mine at 1 PSI crossed up over some ditches & logs by my house and I couldn't get my Rockers to peal off the the Hutchinsons. I also have a nice bead slide hammer now if ya need to borrow one

Wouldn't the issue be that after you take the bolts out you can't get the two halves apart? Kinda like the h1's you sometimes had to use a winch on one half.

Hardcore.

I've often wondered how hard it will be to get them apart.

Nope they pull apart ok, but getting the tire (beads) off the halves of the rims can be a PITA.
-Undo all the bolts
-Pull halves about 3-4" apart and place several pieces of wood between them, next to the studs.
-Stand in middle of the rim and pop beads back with bead slide hammer.

Tyre Plyers work too, but they scratched my rims worse than the slide hammer. I just take them on the trail now because they're easier to pack.

And WR, that's one mean ditch and log pile
