A member of Bronco6g captured a Cactus Gray Bronco Raptor out in the wild! It was so wide, it couldn't even be captured in one photo :ROFLMAO:

Note that Beadlock Rings installed on the Style1 beadlock wheels and they do look noticeable wider being pushed outward approximately 1/2 inch. Also front bumper end caps and fog lights removed.

are you saying the headlocks have different offset than the stock wheel? (the 'pushed out 1/2 inch comment)

It's interesting how the colors work differently on different models. I had CG on my FE (which I just sold) and I thought it looked terrific on the FE...while I don't think it works that well on the BRaptor...but, to each their own...it's a good color.

When using a beadlock ring kit, the outside tire bead is placed on the outsite of the wheel lip then the ring is bolted on to pinch the tire bead between the outside lip of the wheel and the beadlock ring. This effectively adds approximately 1/2" of outward wheel width thereby moving the tire outer edge outward probably something slightly less than 1/2". In the photo's it's possible to see the added width of the tires as well as the vertical relationship to the fender flares. The tire effectively now thinks its mounted to a wheel wider than 8.5". Also notice in the photo's the stock wheels with the beauty rings have a small gap to the tire, whereas after a beadlock ring is installed there is no gap since the ring is pinching the tire bead.

ah, I missed the fact that they had the beadlock rings installed on the wheels.
