I'm a bit worried about my drive flanges. These wheels have 4.5-4.75" back spacing. The drive flange only sits about 3" inside the tire.

The next 3 (or 4) will go quicker. An air ratchet works best for snugging them up quickly. If you ever need it, I've got a bead slide hammer for when it comes time to change the rubber out or do a repair.

Very nice choice on the wheels....I love mine...The first scratch hurts a little...then it just adds character..

Did you add any balance beads to them for those short road trips???

Brian,
No I didn't. I haven't balanced an offroad tire yet. Never really had a problem. Flat spots are far worse.
