These are true beadlocks, correct?

Fitz,

Yes these are true beadlocks. Sorry it took me a while to answer.

In addition they have the additional stem for air-down/up which allows bypass of the TPMS. Although I just air-down and reset the TPMS in the cab anyway, so don’t use it.

For air-down I had started originally with 25 PSI all the way around but now I go to 35 PSI aft tires and 30 PSI forward set.

Folks should be aware that true beadlocks are not legal for use on the street, and additionally, most tire shops won't work on them or mount tires on them. Otherwise, their great for off road use.

The wheels are DOT approved and legal. They have the DOT stamp right on them. In addition, installed by an approved vendor with no issue.

Les Schwab had no issue with these, at least to the extent of a yearly rotation and balance .

Well then, my mistake, quite sorry...................

EDIT: No disrespect, but I've looked into this again, and pretty much all the information I can find says something similar to this:
They are illegal in the US for on road use due to the fact that they are not an error proof system of mounting. The DOT requires that a tire and wheel combination cannot come apart."

In addition, close reading of the Roambuilt site reveals that they have a " Bead LOOK ring, and a military LOOK ring" (their capitalization), so not true beadlocks. Having said that, I think they are great looking wheels that don't require the maintenance a true bead lock wheel requires, and any tire shop will mount and dismount tires on them.
