Some day I would like some bead locks for the Ruby, but most people seem to say they are illegal? Is it true?
I wish I could say the same, I have had some "run ins" this year (nothing major) but dealing with them has been painful (3 days to get my licence back). Your suggestion is a good one though, might as well hear it from the horses mouth. I will post back what I get.funinmud said: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.
That's a new one for me. Never knew there was legislation in place re-split rims. However, in isolation, split-rims are not all illegal. My fathers Freightliner (commercial truck) runs split rims. But that may be a moot point due to the application.tjpete said:Thanks eveyone. I bet the multi piece rim is what is going to cause the problem DOT or not.
Another good find Topless. You are on your way to breaking an urban myth!!Topless Rubi said:Check out this regulation, multipiece rims have to be marked as such. Beadlocks could be considered multi piece so the rim has to be identified as such by the manufacturer.
In the "motor Vehicle Safety Act" home made beadlocks may not be street legal as they would not be correctly labeled.
