Machining some beadlocks

I've started machining a set of 2.2" beadlocks for my Clod crawler. They will be internal beadlocks with a removable center in case I decide to change the design later on.

Making progress on my wheels. I finished one of the beadlock sleeves and mounted a tire to make sure it clamps the bead. After a few more cuts on the lathe, it holds the bead securely.

I plan to machine the centers similar to the wheels on my 1:1 daily driver.

Thanks!

They're functionally finished. Still haven't decided on the design for the centers.
