Hutchinson Wheels G-Wagen 16" Beadlock Rockmonster Wheels G-Class
The Hutchinson wheels are legendary in military Gelandewagen, these wheels are true beadlock and are also true DOT compliant and street legal in the USA. This is about the most rugged wheel for the G-class trucks.
The additional bolts seen on the edge of the rim is what it means to have a true bead lock. These bolts are not for show, rather pure function to clamp the tire bead between the two wheel portions. This becomes extremely useful to "air-down" or lower the tire pressure to increase the contact area of the tire which dramatically increases off road traction. Airing-down also makes for a much softer ride offroad, where the tires soak up many of the smaller bumps from rocks and crevases. The drawback of airing down on conventional wheels is the lower the air pressure drops the greater the risk of the tire bead coming off the rim, and thus losing hte effectiveness of a tire. At higher speeds this can become dangerous. These wheels allow for zero tire pressure whicl still firmly grasping the tires. It would not be advisable to lower tire pressure on conventional wheels much lower than 18psi, sometimes 12 can be achieved in snow or sand. However with the hutchinsons you may easily lower to 7-10 lbs for most situations and 2-3 lbs for snow, sand and loose mud.
