Hello, newbie here.

Please if anyone could advise -- company is looking into getting the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk plus dressing it with FUEL wheels. My concern was, FUEL rims generally being off road rims but would they work well for on road speed which the Trackhawk does best?

Any info would be appreciated, thank you.

    I wouldn't use a beadlock wheel on the street, personally. Just because they may say "DOT compliant" that doesn't mean they are guaranteed safe or practical. I suppose you can run them but somebody had better be inspecting them often, re-torquing them often, and consider replacing the wheel lugs at least once a year.

    Also I've been reading that some states prohibit the use of a beadlock wheel on the street, but I never could find the actual regulation that says this.

    I don't claim to be an expert in this area--just passing on that some beadlock wheel manufacturers don't recommend their use for street.
