I bent one of my fine douglas wheels riding after 20 hours on the bike. I dont know how it happened, but the front right tire is slightly warped and it gives a shudder at high speeds. I dont want to go out and buy another set of regular wheels if im just going to bend them after 20 hours of riding. I dont motoX, i dont jump anything too big. I just want a stout set of wheels so i can hopefully not worry about them for a while. I know when i was looking at DS650 baja, it had beadlocks. I know they have to be around somewhere.
Thanks

if the rims were stock and not aftermarket on the ds650, they were not beadlocks. the ds650 has regular rims with an extra ring welded on to make it stronger, it does look like a beadlock, but its not. as far as beadlocks for the pred, i looked around on the net for a few minutes and the best place i came up with was omf performance http://www.omfperformance.com/ they didn't have the exact bolt patterns listed, but it looked like they make just about everything. the bolt pattern you need from them is 4/156mm and the rims are 10 inches in diameter - james

not too many will offer rims with the stock rear bolt pattern, the 4/156 in an odd size, banshees used it for 2 years, then switched back, polaris has also switched it for 2004 on the predator, many different companies offer a replacement hub that will allow you to use 4/110 bolt pattern wheels, a much more common size. you can see the hubs and beadlocks in my profile. The fronts are no problem.

hey i just looked around again and pure polaris sells front and rear beadlocks (duh, i should have thought about that before), anyway, they are expensive, but that is a source -james

I have never seen the rims pure polaris offers in person, but looking at the pictures, they look more like a wheel with a reinforcing ring on it, true beadlocks normally would not have the tapper at the lip of the wheel, being the locking ring holds the tire on, not any wheel lip.
