Admitting I’m a bit new at this I am wondering if someone can help with some guidance on the “headlock capable” wheels that came on my Bronco. I know the purpose of bead locks but what do I need to do to turn a “bead lock capable” wheel into a bead lock wheel? Can’t find anything on Ford and imagine I’m going to have to buy some stuff

@frdfan posted the link for it. Just have to take off the trim ring, reseat the wheel, and install the function ring.

If you don't want to do it yourself, you'll probably have to find a shop that specializes in 4x4/off-road vehicles to do it for you. Most "normal" tire shops won't touch beadlock rings for liability reasons, and in some states/cities/locales there are restrictions about where you can use beadlock rings and/or how fast you can go on pavement. So do a bit of home work (or get another set of tire/wheels) before you commit.

Check your state of driving…. As I understand it, full-bead lock wheels are not legal in many states for on-road driving
