I would agree as far as functionality, but when it's an R you're chroming and polishing stuff for no reason whatsoever besides looks haha. So if you like the way they look I'd say they're worth it.

My opinion might be biased currently while I ride around on 4 warped aluminum wheels lol.

Dwt g2 beadlocks are more $$ than what i paid for my cf1.  I got a rear pair. Havenít used them yet. I like the look and the carbon will stay black no matter how blasted they get in the dunes.  I also like the 10x9 hiper offers. Most only offer 10x8. Iím not too worried about the weight cuz I donít drag race much.  At Glamis, you can be several miles from camp. As much as 25.   Beadlock gives some insurance to make it back to camp.   I got one mounted on a new SS2.  Now I need to find another matching tire.  My 10Ē .125Ē and .160Ē dwtís are all bent so some extra strength will be nice too.

Don't see brand new skate 2's very often anymore. Finding a new left tire to match might be tough.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

Sure will.  Iím just gonna pick the best one Iíve got. Oregon tree roots have not been kind to my paddles.   Forgot to mention, the hipers are going on my 450R which is a heavy pig anyway.

I haven't heard of leaky aluminum bead-locks, but I have heard of constantly getting flat spots. Which is something that the Hipers definitely don't do.

I installed the new bead-lock rings on my Hipers last night, we'll see if they held their air when I get home from work.
