In regards to the sheared bolts on the beadlock ring, I just received mine and they are now 10.9 rated. I think AEV is listening.

So I got them mounted with Toyo MTs in 35x12.5 and I must say, they are HEAVY! The factory wheels with 33" ko2s were 70lbs, these weight in at 120lbs! I didn't weight the tires and wheels separately but toyo's website says they weight 75lbs so that makes the wheel + beadlock ring + bolts weight 45lbs.

Love these wheels. Absolute exactly the look I was looking for.

I have a punkn JLU, I was having a hard time between onyx and satin...If these are onyx I'm going that direction.

So I drilled out another one today, PITA. Had to tap the thread and replaced all bolts with grade 10.9 black bolts, now it is much less likely to broke, and I dig the black on onyx look.

You can see some of the AEV bolts I get out are already bent, that is how soft they are.

I swapped out all my bolts to stainless. Here is the link to what I used. I torque tested them and they didn't start budging till 30 foot pounds. They say serrated on the back but it is pretty much flat. Haven't had any issues. All torque down without a problem.
