I have had a lot of problems with my Bassett beadlock rims with the locking ring nuts coming off or stripping out. (Inhertia rims) I also bent a beadlock this past week simply by running up on the berm that formed on the track. Anyone else having the same issues?
I am thinking of switchin to Areo.

I have found the Aero wheels to be just about indestructible. The only one that was bent beyond use was from a head on shot in a pile up. I have had great luck with them personally.

AEROs are the only way to go. Havent had any major problems and they stand up to some pretty good hits also. Even had a hole in the end of the rim where the tire beads up and still keep tire psi in a 30 lap stock car feature.

I switched from Bassett to Aeros a few years back. They're a much better rim.

But this year I bought a set of Allied chrome IMCA rims. Gotta say, they're as good as the Aeros too. Haven't had a single problem with them.
