Walker Evans beadlock wheels!!

Rover Hybrids is proud to now carry Walker Evans wheels! PM or email for special D90 source pricing!

Walker Evans Racing is proud to announce our very own solid cast aluminum bead locked wheels. We have poured all of our racing experience into these top quality wheels. Over the years we have seen just about every racing wheel made. Used in many off road racing events, bead locked wheels firmly grip the tire onto the wheel. This prevents the tire from coming off the wheel especially when low tire pressures are used.

Most beadlocked wheels currently on the market start off as a standard wheel. The outer lip of the wheel is removed and a ring is welded to the wheel. This ring serves as the backing plate for the outer lock ring to bolt to. We take a different approach and cast the beadlock into the wheel from the start. Making the entire wheel from a single cast part eliminates the extra step of welding on a separate ring and reduces the chances of leaks. A single cast-design results in a stronger more reliable wheel. Our wheels are rated at 3,800 lbs per wheel. Much higher then nearly all other wheels on the market.

Each wheel features grade 8 hardened bolts to attach the outer ring. Each bolt threads into long steel inserts securely mounted in the wheel.

Making our own wheels also allows us the opportunity to relocate the valve stem. On most wheels today the valve stem is located near the outside of the wheel. It's not uncommon to see these damaged and even torn off by rocks, roots and other trail obstacles, resulting in a flat tire. By moving the valve stem further back into the wheel, out of harms way, the problem is virtually eliminated. We think we have the best built, best looking, strongest wheel design on the market!

Our 15" X 8" wheel is available in 3.75" to 5" backspace . The 17"X8.5" wheels are available in 3.75" to 6" backspace. Backspacing is cut to order on both sizes. All Standard automotive bolt patterns are available from 5 lug to 8 lug including Hummer & VW application
