    The 401 Beadlock Wheel from Method Race Wheels is a premium wheel option that’s ideal for drivers wanting quality construction, a secure beadlock design, and performance that’s wrapped up in a fairly traditional, but great looking style.

    Based on a high-pressure cast aluminum alloy body with a 1600 pound load rating, the 401 is an extremely robust wheel that stands up to the abuse of racing, trail riding, and weekend trips. A 6061 billet aluminum beadlock matches the toughness of the wheel and reliably locks the bead down using countersunk grade 8 zinc plated hardware.

    Specs:
  • High pressure cast aluminum alloy body
  • 6061 billet aluminum alloy beadlock ring
  • Grade 8 zinc-plated beadlock hardware
  • Beadlock hardware recessed for clean looks
  • 1600 pound load rating
  • Ideal for serious racers and weekend riders

401 Beadlock
Rims look great. Solid Build. Great finish. But not really in the value bracket...they are expensive. If they where a little cheaper I would have them on all my machines. I have 3 sets of beadlocks. ONLY thing I give ONE star to is the RM rim and tire builder. The tire/rim came to my house ready for install. I put these tires on last Saturday... rode 15 miles and decided to check my pressure and bead bolts torque. Good thing I checked! Had lost 4 bolts in the bead lock. Clearly, whoever is mounting these is not doing a very goods job with the torque sequence. 4 bolts in 15 miles that's crazy. and very annoying. and not to mention that half dozen that I was able to tighten back with my fingers.

Love these wheels!
I had a set of STI Beadlocks before these, and although I liked them, they didn't hold a match to the Methods.

The Methods were far easier to get torqued all the way around which gives me more confidence in the ring. They are stout. The only critique I have is that the plastic center caps are pretty much junk. Held in with an o-ring and tough to seat.

How tight are you supposed to torque the beadlock bolts to?
Ian M on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: According to the paper that came with mine:

-Always use a STAR PATTERN when attaching and tightening mounting bolts to the wheel
-Re-torque ring bolts after the first 50 miles and each subsequent 200 miles
-Start bolts by hand, at least two full turns
-A beadlock ring spacer may be required for larger tires.

-Using a calibrated torque wrench, tighten each bolt to half the required torque specification (10-12 ft. lbs. for 15” and above, 5-6 ft. lbs. for 12” and 14” UTV wheels

-Using a calibrated torque wrench, tighten each bolt to final torque specification (20-25 ft. lbs. for 15” wheels and above, 10-12 ft. lbs. for 12” and 14” UTV wheels

If I want to put bfgoodrich mud terrain pickup tire will the bed will seat or I will need to put longer lugs on it? For the ring to close?
A shopper on Jan 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I put some Goodyear Wranglers on mine and yes had to start off with longer bolts to pull the ring down. It can be done but it is a pain for sure. Must have patience :)
Will the Method 401’s 14x7 5+2 work on the front of a 2013 rzr xp 900? The fitment guide says they will, have just read elsewhere that 5+2 won’t clear tie rod
A shopper on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 4/156 Method Race Wheels 401 Beadlock Wheel 14x7 5.0 + 2.0 Matte Black Fits: 2013 POLARIS RANGER 900 XP Part# 1662540002

I show this will will fit on the front or rear on your machine.
What does 14x7 4.0 + 3.0 mean? I have Mongrel 32-10-R14 Tires and want to get a set of wheels for them . 2016 Polaris 1000 XP Turbo EPS
James B on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 14x7 is the wheel size. The size is 14 and the width is 7. 4.0 + 3.0 is the offset meaning the wheel will go 4 inches underneath the machine and stick out 3 inches. This size will fit that size of tire. Also, make sure your machine is entered in the drop down boxes above the product image so the bolt pattern is correct.
can i use my stock lugs on these 401 bead lock wheels?
Walter R on Mar 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These wheels require a tapered lug nut like listed below. If your machine already has a tapered lug nut, they should work fine with this wheel.
