Who sells the steel dzus buttons to replace the aluminum ones in wheels covers?  They need the step to put the plastic washer on to keep them on the cover.  We're thinking just drill 3 more holes and run 6 to keep them even.  That will work with Weld beadlock rings but not with some other brands.  Only issue is the newer covers have the hole partially recessed in the lip.  That won't be easy to deal with.    

The bolt option doesn't look bad either.  $15 per beadlock ring and $21 for a set of bolts for a cover.  MIght take a little longer to put them on and take off but probably not much.

I think Sanders made 5 tab beadloc rings for several years but have any of the other wheel companies addressed this? Looking at Weld's website there is no mention of anything other than the 3 tab design.

Bolt kits are available at Behling Racing (262)783-7474. They are trick. I cant figure out how to post a picture of them.

I remember hearing about this last year and I'm still not sure of the reasoning behind the rule changes.  Was there a rash of wheel covers coming off that I didn't hear about?  Or is this someone's idea of preventing a potential problem that may not exist?

A mud cover did get into the stands somewhere. The lawsuit is still ongoing.  Not going to give everyone any details cause I may not remember them properly.

Gotta move to steel. It doesn't matter if there are 9 mounting points , when they get worn out from being taken on and off 50 times a week, they will fall out. Steel will increase the longevity. It's one of the most dangerous things at a racetrack.

I've seen a few go flying off in the last couiple years. One came off of a car heading into the 1st turn at Eldora like a frisbee and landed somewhere behind the bleachers near the souvenir trailers. Could've been bad.

Wow, thanks for the info guys.  I don't believe I've seen this happen before so I didn't know it was an actual problem.
