Are Bead Locks Illegal In Canada/Ontario??

Some day I would like some bead locks for the Ruby, but most people seem to say they are illegal? Is it true?

Majority of them arn't DOT approved. I think someone does make a dot approved bead lock which could be used on the roads, forget who makes it though.....

Is DOT not an US thing? In Ontario it is the MTO I think??

Same thing. DOT= Department of Transportation, MOT = Ministry of transportation.

i doubt an OPP would even know the answer to that.

if you're heavily modded they might check you out but again i highly doubt it.

Not sure of Ontario laws but other provinces I have looked into have regulations that state multi piece rims are prohibited, ie split rims used on aircraft and some low speed farm equipment.

There is also a beadlock for offroad use only that operates on the split rim principle so it would not be legal on roads in the majority if not all provinces.

Of course depending on the officer and his interpretations of the regulations the beadlock rims could be considered multi-piece, considering the rim is seperate piece from locking ring you can't really blame them

Thanks eveyone. I bet the multi piece rim is what is going to cause the problem DOT or not.

Another option is to send a message to the MTO or call them. I've contacted them in regards to gross weight and trailering along with weight stations and I always get a phone call back in a timely manner. I've been very impressed.
