I have aluminum wheels on all my trucks. The Vekta 5 currently have the Maxxis tires mounted. You need the aluminum outer bead lock and re-use the inner plastic ones. No problems with the wheels to report and it's been a while. As far as recommending tires, I would stay away from the Maxxis tires for other reasons that I have posted on the forum.
Good Luck,

Cool to have the maxxis things for variety for sure but those issues you mention I'm loosing sleep over , in the middle of servoe decisions , have talked with you before over that ,just waiting for funds to do that , but I'm gonna put together some alloys with one of the Badlands styles , those really look like some dirt biters for sure, thanx for your input

The only ones I use are the DDM - hh65x and hh655 wheels, you will also find the bead locks associated with the wheels.

I would call DDM and talk to Steve, he is the most informative.
