Default Ssd beadlocks and proline super swamped tsl

Not sure what the heck I'm doing wrong. I can't get my beadlocks seated properly inside the tire. It seems like the inner ring won't allow it to work.

Well after a bit of a struggle I finally got them to fit. Was certainly not expecting the challenge it was. But after it got the first it was a breeze

The last picture you posted looks like the front and rear wheel halves aren’t lined up properly. You have to keep rotating the front or rear until the 6 hub screw holes and all d-window holes line up. Also it is normal for it be a little difficult getting the screws started. You kind of need three hands to compress the wheels together and start a screw.

Mostly dirt, mud. Not a whole lot of rocky areas in LA

After much trial and error I got them on! Not having them lined up was definitely an issue

next time you mount tires on bead locks put the tires in the freezer overnight.
it stiffens them up and makes them way easier to mount. also on those squeeze type beadlocks like that use one long bolt then switch it out when you get the others started.

Ok next time I will for sure do that. And the longer bolts would have definitely helped. I have some more bolts coming today. A couple of them stripped out

I ordered the brass inners with my SSD wheels and use the Proline SS tires. Went on pretty easy, you could always look into those especially if you want to add weight with out the brass look. Just an option even though you already got your tires mounted haha
