I took the bottom cover off and found a path of dirt, front to back. Th...

New Non-beadlocks sell for around $117 each. Used value either falls under the 2/3 or 1/2 rule (in my book at least). Like new = 2/3 or
condition less than like new = 1/2 the value of new.

Like new $77 each
Condition less than like new $58 each

What condition are they?

What offset?
