In case anyone is interested, here is what the Ultra X102 Xtreme X-Lok wheels look like at 16x8. They're brand new for 2013. I got them at a local Big O tire store yesterday for about $152 a piece. They kind of remind me of the TRD fake beadlocks. The tires are 265/70R-16.

good for you !

tho' I must admit to disliking fake bead lock wheels.

Mostly 'cause the rocks tend to grind 'dem up...
and they don't look so bling after 'dat.

real bead locks tend to get ground up as well...
but they are more about purpose/function, then looks.

You need to sign up for free Photobucket hosting
to post your pictures...
'cause the ttora attachment thingy sucks ballz.

I didn't really like the fake beadlock look at first either but it grew on me. I was getting stick of looking at the factory alloys after 12 years and wanted something new. I like black wheels but not completely black so these pretty much fit the bill.

Oh... I know a lot of people don't like the white letters out look and I'm not a huge fan of it either... except for BFG tires. I like the font they use for their lettering.

I do have a Photobucket account but I couldn't remember the login info when I posted this earlier today.

maybe not on the tires you have currently...

but there are tires produced that offer a wheel bead protector.
could come in handy for keeping those wheels looking bling.

Several tire mfgr's offer wheel bead protection (bead lip)

Muh hankook RT03's have them...
they are a worthwhile consideration IMO.
Especially when traversing thru rocky terrain
and when air'd down.

For the city dweller...
bead protector's = less curb rash ! :cool:

If I looked quick and didn't know, I would have guessed those were the TRD fakelocks... Look nice.

I do have some close-up images. Let me see if I can remember how to log in to Photobucket and post them that way.

Edit: I'll have to post them from home later. Photo hosting sites are blocked where I am right now for some reason.

I finally remembered how to log in to my Photobucket account. I resized them all down to 640x480 so they'd fit. I guess I could have made them a bit larger. Oh well.

Here's the wheel right out of the box:


Here's the first one after mounting and balancing:
