Don't know, but Google gave me this (no idea is this is trust worthy of a bunch of b@#$):
"we forgot to say that most “cheap” beadlock wheels (with cheap being a relative term) and even many expensive wheels are often impossible to balance. This is a big part of the reason that beadlocks aren’t DOT certified. An unbalanced wheel can be extremely dangerous at highway speeds."
http://www.tundraheadquarters.com/bl...-why-and-what/


"Because most beadlocks from years ago use to lose bolts, which is very dangerous on the highway, because of their constant slight air loss, and the center of the rims were two piece."
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/25...s-illegal.html

"Beadlock rims are considered illegal because of a safety hazard. The way they are placed on tires are by bolts which could become lose. If the bolts become lose then the rim can separate from the tire. "
http://www.ask.com/question/why-are-...k-rims-illegal

It would be best to get a DOT link in here... Too lazy to look for one. Someone else will find it!

DOT Beadlocks

My Ford Raptor has a DOT approved Beadlock on it, but they're a bit odd, since they can be mounted in the usual way, or with the bead lock (someone recently came up with this new dual system)...
Sorry for the hijack Good luck with the sell....They look like a nice set!

I had no idea this "for sale" thread would turn into a lively discussion about bead lock rims.
