Does anyone know about or running these rims?

So I was wondering if anyone knows anything about these Terrafirma rims? I was thinking about getting them, but figured I would do some homework on them before making the plunge. They are a bit pricey but I figure I would go with something out of the norm of everyone else.

Mate,
I have also been thinking about getting a set. Mainly because itís the only beadlock I can easily get in the Middle East. Unfortunately my overheating problems have been taking up most of my time and money..if you do get a set please let us know what you think. I have a full Tarraferma lift kit and have been happy with the quality. Probably not the very best but much better than some of the low end British parts (Britpart)

They are really nice looking, but who wants a 16x7in beadlock? Thats pointless. A 15 or a 17 by 8-9 is what anyone who needs a beadlock would want. At least imo.

From my understanding if you don't run the beadlock ring then the rim is 16x7. but I you run the ring the rim is 16x8.

But one of my concerns is if I run this rim with 285/75r16 am I going to rub when I'm fully lock or if I stuff a tire.

Yeah, but thats only one problem. There is very little to choose from in a 16in rim and what is there to choose from is much more expensive than a 15 or 17.

Made locally (Italy).
ET to fit the specific vehicle, I never tried them though.
