Default Beadlocks and anti-coning

anti-coning rings overrated or what

I understand the reason/purpose, but without using some type of anti-coning ring is it really that bad or necessary to use them? Looking for expeirenced opinions.

I've been running weld on beadlocks for 4 -5 years without coning rings with zero problems.

it depends on the size of your outer ring. I do not run a coning ring, but my outer ring is large enough to prevent coning

what kind of bolts?

grade 5
grade 8
stainless

I ordered the simple style from Ballistic Fab 15" rim, so the outer ring is .250" thick but not very large as far as inner dia.

grade 5s are fine, 20-ish ft-lbs.


I don't run anti-coning rings. They do cone up somewhat, doesn't matter. Doesn't cause leaks, Nobody is breaking bolts.

then you should get a thicker outer ring and countersunk bolts.

or just stock bolts in the trailer. Even with 3 or 4 bolts missing per wheel, it doesn't leak too fast

you lay the metal on edge on the inside circumference of the inner ring. 1/4 inch tall 1/8 material.

start by tacking the end of the straight piece then bend it a bit then tack bend and tack

it took about 10 minutes a wheel with some one bending and one person tacking. we didint even use any heat just bent it. worked out very well.

like hoser said, it's easy to do and the pros out weigh the cons... most importantly it keeps the crap from building up between the 2 rings... I have also heard of people using a "V" belt also.. that seems pretty easy and almost the same benifits.

I run grade 8 bolts with no problems. I replace all the bolts every spring, they see a lot of stress, and they're cheap (by the pound at Tractor Supply).
