Beadlock wheels utilize a locking ring that uses bolts to secure your tire between it and the wheel to assure your tire will not de-bead from your wheels. Beadlocks also allow you to run lower air pressure in your tires than a standard wheel being they lock your tire in place so there is no bead separation when having a side load. Another benefit to a beadlock is it allows the rider to travel with a flat being the tire cannot separate from the wheel.
