Why do most people buy single-sided beadlocks instead of dual-sided?

Greetings,
I'm about to upgrade my '07 800 Max's wheels and tires and have been reviewing this forum to learn about my options.
While I've narrowed down my tire choice to either Pitbull Rockers or Growlers, I was planning on getting dual-beadlock wheels, as at one time or another I've had either side of the tire push off of the bead.
Interestingly, when I read posts about people buying or using beadlock rims, they are almost always talking about single-sided beadlocks, and with them used on the 'outside' of the rim.
Is this due to the fact that most beads are pushed off from that side, or some other reason I'm not aware of.
While its likely that most problems are from the outside, why not spend a little more and protect the tire from both sides with dual beadlocks?

Thanks for your thoughts on this!

Not sure if the beadlock will clear all the IRS suspension stuff on the inside..i know the straight axle guys but duals...hence just a axle going into the back of the wheel..but i could be wrong..good luck!

Never had a tire pushed off from the rear side myself. Have had it on the front side a couple of times. Most of the action usually occurs on the wheel nut side of the rim.

Beads usually come off either when the rim turns but the tire doesn't or force from cornering, it's the outside bead that takes the load from the cornering and it rolls off. A single fixes both these.

Yup, those are the dual-beadlocks I've been looking at.
For me, with all the slow crawling I do over sharp rocks and clearcut stumps, I've had the bead come off both the insides and outsides of the rims multiple times.
'Probably not something most folks will run into, but for me, these terrain conditions are the main reason I'm looking at dual-beadlocks...
