Bead lock rims are to keep you from debeading a tire. Been riding for over 20 years and never had one come off the rim.

IMO, it's a little bit of both... you might not race, but you might ride in really bad terrain... real rocky, rutted and all that good stuff... it's mostly just preference, and personally, another one of those luxurys

Also to be able to repair a tire on the field with normal patches which are better than plugs and they are also a lot stronger on the lips.

I have had front tyres come off the rims a few times in the past with non beadlocks but never a rear.

There are several issues that may be overcome with beadlocks........

A highly powered MX quad will use a small 8" rear wheel. This means that there is only a small diameter gripping the tire on to the wheel. At low pressure combined with high power and high speed cornering there is a good chance you could spin the wheel inside the tire. For this reason you will see MX guys useing them on the rear only.

Off road guys use a 9" or even 10" wheel so spinning a tire is not so much of an issue so they mainly use beadlocks because they are much stronger than a conventional wheel (eg: double strength outside lip)

Desert guys use them for strength also but have the added bonus of being able to ride on them if you get a flat. High speed racing in the desert usually means that the pits could be along way away and riding on a flat tire is sometimes the only option. A beadlock will stop the tire from comming off the bead.......riding on a flat tire is better than riding on no tire at all.
