Custom Steel wheel mfgr in Denver

I have found a custom wheel manufacturer here in Denver that can make both steel and aluminum wheels for the Touareg.

For reference, the bolt pattern is a 5 x 130

17x7" Canyon Wheel ET 55
18x8" Manhattan Wheel ET 57
19x9" Atheo Wheel ET 60

The question is: If I am bothering to have custom wheels made for offroad, should I go with a bead lock or it is going to be overkill for what the vehicle is capable of?

Beadlocks are overkill for the vehicle. If you want to get them for the looks, go for it, but I highly doubt you will need them.

I've been running the tires on my Jeep (35" BFG Krawler T/As) at 10 psi when I go out in the Jeep. I am putting beadlocks on this week so I can air down to 5-6 psi to get maximum traction, and keep my tires seated on the rims when I'm rock crawling.

Read here to understand what beadlocks are for and why you would need them... might I need a beadlock?
