Inner Air Locks
« on: January 25, 2017, 11:48:34 AM »

Has anybody used these or know anybody using these? Since my H2's arent beadlocked and are known to chip at the bead, I figured this would be the best route since I'm not going to carry a spare. $135 a tire.

Opinions? Ready go!

Setting the bead is cake, simply inflate the tire and both beads will set.  Mark

Weld a rock ring on the wheels are you are just gonna tear em up. I saw a guy at the rubicon last time that was missing chunks out of all of his and one was about halfway gone  :rofl:

The other problem is H2's are a cast wheel,  inner air luck or Staun exert a ton of pressure on the bead of the wheel.  My current tire with Staun and Rock 8 with rock ring welded on, and new the new setup.

Now that's just damn sexy Mark.

Connor, I have no personal experience by a buddy has been running the Stauns for many years like Mark with no issue.  I've considered the inner air as well, the price is certainly right.

Yes the price is right.. I think im gonna try them out once I get this rig road worthy.. I would be curious to see how durable the inner locks are if you were to slash a sidewall.

I was trying to stay away from the heavy steel wheels.  40's are already heavy enough with aluminum wheels.

Sadly, i cant find anybody that sells alluminum rock rings anymore. I know BTF used to make them.

What 40 inch tire are you going to run?  The Staun version is pretty resilient.   The other plus is double beadlock and run flat.  I would have gone the direction you are, but got a great deal on a set of Racelines.  They're a pain to install but work great. Mark

 :dunno:

Inner Air makes them in aluminum and steel.  Scroll halfway down the page and you'll see the designs and then select material (steel/aluminum) $172 a set for steel about $260 a set for aluminum (assuming a 17" wheel).   :high5:

Wow good catch. I never bothered scrolling beyond the inner air locks.

Right now I have a well used set of 40" old style MTRs. My goal is maxxis treps once I blow through these.

Connor contact Greg wall.  He has a table and I bet will cut some aluminum rings for you for a decent price.

I'll bet someone here has a spool gun to make it easy.

If he makes you a good deal let me know, I may get a set as well if he's up to making two sets.

You will have to bead blast the weld area pretty good to weld it.  Aluminum is not like steel, needs to be very clean.  Mark
