I used plastic BB's to balance mine. They aren't perfect but are close enough and I don't have to worry about losing a weight on the trail. Mine hold air pretty well. I have one that is leaking a bit. I think I just need to break it down and clean the non-beadlocked bead.

I found mine used on Pirate about 5 years ago. $400 for 4 MRW steel beadlocks.

go with steel, aluminum breaks, steel is also better for greater offsets and wider rims, weight is a factor, I have mrw, no balance problems no road problems no air problems, paint is poor , proper torques are mandatory. Can buy direct from mrw.

I have eaton's they are always losing air. but the more bolts you have the less chance in the air leaking.
its on the road finally only 2 1/2 years later. (note to self before doing work make sure you have the time to do it.)

I have mrw wheels. They hold air pretty good the paint started coming off the first time I washed my jeep. mrw-wheels.com is their web. You can order any offset or size you would like.
