Wondering if I need to get beadlock wheels for 28-30" tires? Using mine for work and minor mud exposure during playtime with aggressive tread. Anybody having problems with torque and tires slipping?

You shouldn't have any issues as long as you don't air way down. If you never air down and run the factory psi you'll never have a problem.

Most guys, including myself have run bead locks for 2 reasons. One is to protect the wheel lip from rocks (aluminum rims will break), the 2nd is to be able to drive out with a flat tire or cut sidewall.

I only blew a bead twice on my RZR when it had Mud-Lites on it. Never blew another bead after getting 30" Mudder-In-Laws which I believe have a thicker sidewall. The two times I blew a bead were easily fixed with a can of starting fluid and a lighter, and the second time was a red solo cup with a little premium gasoline, and a lighter.
