Have you ever been in a situation without a solution to get out of that sticky mud? Of course you were. But eventually, you found a solution. Was it a winch? Was there a friend with you? There’s always a solution. But do you know that airing down your tires can help?
When you do it, the tire has more grip. It becomes wider and adapts to the ground. Your car turns into a tracked vehicle. Although, airing down your tire too much can ruin your day and give you few hours of work.
Due to extremely low pressure, tire will easily slip of the wheel. But beadlocks will save your day! By using beadlocks, you can lower the pressure way down.
There’s two types of beadlocks: external (we already wrote about this system) and internal beadlocks.
Basically, internal beadlock is a tire inside a tire. A really simple system to understand. When a tire is under normal pressure, air pushes its walls onto the bead of the wheel. So the tire can’t slip off (video).
But when the air pressure is extremely low, the internal beadlock (“tire in a tire”) will be inflated and it will push the wall of the tire onto the bead seat. The inner beadlock just takes over the role of the tire pressure. You get more grip, you get a simple solution to get out…
Internal beadlocks VS. External beadlocks? Three simple reasons and facts. Internal beadlock is lighter. It is not so complicated to mount, it does not require fabrication skills. And the price is not over the top.
You can find a few dealers in Europe, but in my opinion, the best one would be Energit Internal Beadlocks from Italy, they have a huge palette of sizes available. Good quality and a decent price. When I say “a decent price”, I am talking about a normal price for that kind of value and quality,
