Hutchinson Wheel Accessories
The Hutchinson Internal Beadlock ensures the clamping of the tire beads on the rim at lowered or zero pressure. This increases the mobility of a wheeled vehicle operating in soft terrains such as sand, mud, or snow, it is necessary to increase the footprint of the tires.
The Hutchinson Internal Beadlock complies with all industry rim standards and has been used with all major tire brands. The internal double beadlock system holds the tire bead securely against the rim, without breaking the bead seal or slipping during use. Unlike external beadlock rings installed on one side of the wheel, the Hutchinson beadlock clamps in the beads on both sides of the tire. Further, the Hutchinson internal beadlock is DOT approved and is “street legal”.
