Yea I found some at autozone.

Good luck, I scrapped my beadlocks and went to some Baja wheels because I was tired of the flats. No matter what I did, they'd leak.

I guess it's not a big deal for short motos but for free riding and harescrambles it was extremely irritating. Especially when you pay good money for them and expect them to perform a certain way..

keep in mind when you install bead sealer on a beadlock rim you need to put it between the rim and the bottom side of the tire bead. This is were the air is sealed in. If you just put it on the outside of the bead and the ring the air will leak through the bolt holes. When I had trouble with leaking air I hit something so hard it bent the ring and rim lip were the tire is pinched. Didn't matter what I did that rim leaked. I found that dent and fixed it then no issues.

We switched to the Goldspeed Carbon composited beadlock rings for this very same reason. Plus we were seeing the Aluminum ring cut the tires sidewall when the tire would compress on a landing. If the Aluminum ring has any dents or hits it pushes the Aluminum inwards towards the tire and then when compressed it cuts the sidewall but then when not compressed it looks as if a rock or an object sliced the sidewall not realizing it happen when the tire was compressed. The Goldspeed Carbon composite rings cured this problem being they are one thicker and have a rolled lip not allowing it to cut or slice the side wall. You should check them out many dealers are carrying them.
