Any Suggestions on what rims???

I am currently running some 16x10 Eagle Alloy rims on my truck and i keep throwing beads (Probably because you not supposed jumping a diesel with them). But i was wondering if i could get some feed back on bead-locks. I was looking at U.S. 6x6's but i dont know how they would do in high speed offroad.

lol with the weight of your truck even with a bead lock you might have problems... plus they are a pain in the butt to balance and illegal to drive on the road.... how about you put the Staun inner tube in it.... here is a link to their website......let me know if you need prices on any of them.....

Well its my chase truck/toy. Im testing a new suspension that i might start selling so its gets a pretty good workout. It goes from the drag strip to the desert, it gets driven to the grocery store one day and jumped like a dirtbike the next. So far i have found the major weak-links in my truck and now its almost unbreakable. lol

thats ok i every lil bit helps. it has a custom 4in front and custom 3in rear. it cycles around 12in of travel with leaf springs! And its tuckin 37in tires with fiber glass fenders and bed sides. also it has no sway bar and is very stable. i was goin to do coil overs but i thought it would be a better victory if i could get the same type of travel out of leafs.
