Re: beadlocks: weld-on vs $$$

valve stems: You already have them in the wheel- $0
balancing beads: Sure, if you want to go that way. $5 of BBs
welding wire: negligible. It's not like you're using a spool of wire per wheel.
grinder: Again, negligible. I don't know anyone that buys a grinder per item they build

total: $125. Let's call it $150 to be ridiculous.

Cheapest beadlock I've seen is $275. Are you not good at math?

Guess your time is free.....but if you add the prep & welding & painting time up, it'll add another 100 per wheel easy.......

That puts the total @ 250 per for an extra 25 per wheel, I can have it right now and do no work...I'll take that !
