Available for Sale, 5 Combat Rims 6.5" X 16"
Dodge Military trucks had the first beadlocks, called Combat Wheels; The 'combat wheels' were a divided-rim, that used a bolted-on retaining ring replacing the normal split ring wheels. They were designed for quick and easy tire replacement during combat, hence the name.

I think we're all kinda familiar with the term "Combat rim" or "Combat wheel" here, but some pics would help...

Oh- and the beadlocks were there to hold the bead in place in case of a blow out or flat, allowing the tire to be driven on for a short distance without air to get out of danger. Not a true "run flat" as we know them thses days, but enough to keep rubber between the rim and the ground, protecting the rim. They have the side benefit of helping military vehicle collectors improve their vocabulary when the beadlocks haven't been removed in decades, and have rusted to the rims...
