STI Tire & Wheel has stepped up tire security with the introduction of the all-new HD Beadlock. This innovative one-piece alloy wheel is about much more than its beadlock ring design, however. The HD Beadlock brings numerous features and benefits to this wheel market, but not the associated costs.
It starts with a distinctive “Baja”-inspired stepped mod style, a classic in the off-road world. Two finish options are offered, including Bright Machined with Gloss Black accents (shown here) and STI’s exclusive, non-stick Slik-Kote, which sheds mud like nothing else. This reduces unsprung weight on the trail and cleanup time in the driveway. New, matching, low-profile center caps are included with every wheel.
What makes the HD Beadlock unique is its creative integral-mount beadlock ring, which is quick to install and engineered to reduce debris buildup. A beadlock wheel configuration makes tire mounting simple and adds considerable strength to the outer lip. Most importantly, the ring helps ensure the tire bead stays on the wheel, even when using lower pressures and applying high side loading.
The HD Beadlock also utilizes an even thicker, stronger reinforced inner bead lip than the entire HD Alloy line, an STI feature that helps make these the most rugged wheels available.
The HD Beadlock is being introduced in 12×7 and 14×7 sizes, for application on most popular 4×4/utility ATV and side-by-side UTV models.
Performance meets value! The HD Beadlock is not just for racing. It’s priced right for budget-minded enthusiasts who want to step up to the performance benefits of a beadlock wheel.
