Default inner beadlock

I was tolling the for sale section on pirate and came across a set of hummer rims with motorcycle tires for inner beadlocks, it looks like a cheap way for inner locks but seams like a pita to mount. anybody heard of this or tried it.

That's the system that inner air uses as well as the stauns but the motorcycle tubes are contained inside a beefier sleeve that makes it conform better to the beads. And yes, they can be a pain in the ass to get together without tearing, especially without the beefy sleeve.

What is this beefy sleeve you speak of, is that for the stauns or moto tube.

It's the sewn up sleeve of a beefier material (ballistic nylon?) that makes the tube conform to. I wouldn't think just using a tube would work since it wouldn't be contained at all and could just inflate toward the path of least resistance, ie up instead against the bead.

Makes sense. I understand what you mean by path of least resistance, but would the moto tire push hard enough on the inner bead to be worth it, the guy selling the tires seams to think the it works better, granted he is the one sell the tires.

Not without the sleeve. I mean it may help a tiny bit but I doubt it would be worth the hassle of getting them in there.

I seen the for sale thread on Pirate myself. It is a homebrew setup that is the same concept as innerairlocks/stauns. The guy is using a 255x17 motorcycle tire as the sleeve and a tube to push the motorcycle tire against the inner beads of the actual tire.

I just put inner air locks in mine. They work great, and not having to buy new wheels is a plus also. Just get the right stuff the first time

I would like to get the good stuff, but budget forces me to be creative. And this seams free minus the cost of the tube, and sounds like massive labor.
