Method MR105 Beadlock: First Look

7 Comments

It's no secret that the original 101 Beadlock has enjoyed some serious success in the off-road race world. While that wheel isn't going anywhere, we wanted to expand our race wheel lineup. That is where the all-new Method 105 Beadlock comes in.

Method MR105 Beadlock | Matte Black Machined Finish

With all of the same engineering and FEA analysis as its predecessor, the 105 employs features making it appropriate for the hardcore enthusiast in addition to full-on race capabilities.

Such features TPMS compatibility and a bolt-on center cap to complete the street look for the hardcore offroad enthusiasts. As with all Method beadlock wheels, Grade 8 Zinc-plated mounting hardware is included for the matte black forged 6061 ring.

Upon having tires mounted, the ring bolts are countersunk to avoid bolt heads from shearing off.

The 105 is available in two finishes; matte black and matte black with machined face. Both finishes are painted with a clear coat for further protection. Sizes range from 15" to 20" with fitments not limited to, but perfect for the Jeep and Raptor enthusiasts. Select sizes have started to arrive with the rest showing up shortly.

Since the last post a while ago, the grade 9 bolts are the way to go! Zero broken bolts! Zero! Just pulled the wheels to retorque since I head to the desert next week, and maybe 4 had slightly loosened. All the rest still at correct torque.
David, Method says Mark your street tire and drive it, break with it, etc..the tire won’t move on either rim. If it does, you would also have a flat afterwards. Which a truck jump and see which blows first, the headlock or street lock.
Not dot approved because they won’t take any responsibility what so ever if you mess up your ride because you over torqued, under torque, or hit the altimeter pot hole and blow it. Method will say…oh well, there not dot approved! Or cause an accident because you blew one at high speed.

Anyway, Grade 9 bolts made the difference for my problem.

That’s why the beadlocks are not DOT approved. The problem isn’t the wheels its the fact you are sandwitching the bead and locking it. The truck weighs 7400 lbs. Upon coming to a stop the wheel and bead are static but the tire isn’t. All tires are meant the rotate on a street wheel. Don’t forget your breaking on dirt isn’t at all like breaking on asphault.. Tire is locked and wheel and bead want to move. That’s a reciepe to snap grade 8 bolts. If it wasn’t the bolts your hub would break. I have the same truck and did the same thing.

Just posted on the 10/12 and thought I would add another update. Yesterday I noticed 3 more bolt heads missing off my 105’s! This is sad. Yes again…pro mounted, torqued, etc.. and I lose them quicker then I can replace them. Something is just not right. The ring on one is a little warped now due to losing the ones back on 10/12. Just spent $170 for new f911 bolts to replace the stock ones. Hope this isn’t another “Made in China” quality issue!

Have these on my Raptor and 3 weeks with them on, 3 bolts all in a row had the heads break off! Then this morning, at a stop light, 4 bolts in a row had the heads break off again! Different wheel. Not good! “Yes, professionally mounted” If you can purchase better bolts for them (f911’s) then for the price, why doesn’t Method include them already? Awesome looking, but starting to lose faith in them.

Looks great love the countersunk bolts, how much does the beadlock rim weigh
