Grenadier Ordered
I saw those wheels for the first time at the Game Fair and thought how much better in the flesh than they did of the configurator.

I have ordered the Trialmaster so I am certainly not paying any extra for them but it didn’t stop me thinking how nice they looked and made the steel wheels look a little naff tbh.

Here in Australia beadlock rims are illegal so 100% sure that at least for ours and I assume all of them it is fake, just for decoration
How do the Hummer H1s get road registered with beadlocks?

The Hummer (HMMWV) uses a take-apart wheel system which is DOT certified. They were typically manufactured by Maxion who, ironically, is the wheel supplier for the Ineos Grenadier. Hutchinson, also a military supplier, manufactures a similar wheel for the civilian market under their “Rock Monster“ brand.

Yes ~ my question was how are they then legal in Australia?

On a side issue, I didn't think DOT certified or approved anything. It's up to the manufacturer to ensure they meet the legal requirements and then mark their goods "DOT compliant".

Been wondering about side step vs rock slider myself. In real life, these side steps seem much more convincing than they look on the online visualiser... perhaps Ineos tightened them up a bit?

I have side steps on the Defender (110) and they've been fine for overloading... so this is my preference. A cheaper option on the IG too.

My concern was the initial impression (in the visualiser) of a too-large gap between the step and the bodywork, with the potential to snap ankles in the wet.

But looks pretty good here ...
