Pros and cons for beadlock rims

Hi gang
I have a 2019 Terxy4 and I have had the front tires pop off the rims 3 times this year. Anyone else experience this much?

I keep pressure at 12 PSI front and 16 in back as recommended in manual and I check and top up before going out oin trails.

I am now looking into beadlock rims. Is it OK to put just on front or should they go on back also?

Looking for any info on Pros and Cons of beadlocks. Any recommendations on to where to buy in Canada?

rockymountainatvmc has a good selection. A good friend showed me their site and some good prices. I rodered my fluids and filters from them and my spare tire/wheel.

Did you get the wheel/tire inspected after the first or second time it came off? Its not a common issue with the teryx4 unless something is wrong.

generally speaking:

Beadlocks At A Glance
1. Superior tire retention
2. Easy tire mounting at home
3. Ability to run lower air pressure
4. Ability to run narrower tire on a wheel
5. Strengthens outer wheel circumference

1. Greater weight
2. Higher cost
3. More maintenance
4. Might not be street legal

wouldn't bother with the street legal aspect unless your current state even allows them on certain roads. In Idaho I have a lot more freedom with the exception of federal highways and roads with a 45mph or higher speed limit. Other than that I can go to the local burger joint and drive through lol.

Many thanks Justinooo9 for the detailed reply. Much appreciated.

I just found out today that my tire pressure gauge was not reading accurately and now I am wondering if I may have been running too low on pressure. Just ordered a new gauge with good accuracy and low-pressure range. Hopefully that is the only problem. Not hearing many others having this problem.

I am still going to get some quotes on rims though. Street legal not an issue where I live in Ontario, Canada. Mainly run on side roads between trails. Not allowed on provincial main roads with any ATV or Side x Side.

Thanks again.

Super ATV Lift Kit. I had my dealer install. Be aware that it requires 1-1/2" spacers for the rear wheels or the shocks hit the tires if OEM wheels. We found that out after they were installed. Dealer was not happy as there was no indication in their order catalogue from their supplier but shows it clearly on the Super ATV website.

No reason you couldn't run beadlocks on just the front, other than having non-matching wheels. You will always have a better chance of debeading a front tire vs. a rear tire because of the lateral loads on the fronts when turning.

Beadlocks are generally heavier, more expensive, and require a little bit of maintenance. The maintenance basically consists of making sure the bolts on the lock ring are tight periodically. In regards to mounting and dismounting tires it kinda' depends. With most beadlocks you can unbolt the lock ring and the tire will slide off the rim with minimal effort, so no special tools are required. However, with a $40 Harbor Freight tire changer I can mount and dismount a SxS tire on a non-beadlock rim much faster than I can on a beadlock. For those of you who have never mounted up a set of beadlocks it can take quite awhile to get all the bolts properly torqued down.
