Wolf vs. other steel wheels

Other than the greater thickness of the Wolf wheels, are there any other differences between them and say the GCR steelies or someone elses?
I like the lip on the LR factory wheels since it works more like a bead lock than other wheels, but is there a steelie that does the same thing.
I'm not looking for an actual beadlock that I can air down to 3 psi, but I want to know that I'm not going to break the bead while using a steel wheel.
I've had my alloys down pretty low and they do a great job, but I'm carving them up pretty bad so I want to switch to a steel wheel.

If it's working now for you I'd say keep carving

The backspacing and width is going to be different so really depends on what you want. My alloys kept burping any time I went low enough for them to flex at all so I'm switching to beadlocks... it might have been enough if I'd just gone to a wider tire but I wanted different backspacing too so I figured why waste the change and get the full monty...
