ATX Slabs???

I am thinking about changing out my AEV Pintlers to the ATX Slabs? Anyone else running these and if so thoughts on them! I know they are a new rim and one of our supliers only have 4 in stock not 5 and don't have a ETA on the other one! I know the offset if out there and will stick out more than the AEVs do but I am running 1 inch spacers behind the AEV anyway. So just wondering if it is worth switching over to a bead lock too?

Only you can answer the question of if it'll be worth it to switch to a beadlock. You know how you use your Jeep and that's what it boils down to.

They have been out for over a year now, Wheel Pros just hasn't done a good job of keeping production up on them. There are a few guys running them here, some post more than others. HitMoney has had them on his for a couple of years now without issues.

They are ultimately the same thing as a Spyderlock with a different ring on them which is a very proven wheel.

3.75" of back spacing will give you a nice, wide, stable stance.

yeah a great wheel.. the spyder locks have 3.5 backspacing.. I'm guessing the slabs are the same... so you wont need any spacers. nice wide stance.

LMAO! It's like deja vu!

But yeah... from what I hear they're kind of hard to get right now, but sold 14 yesterday and have some available left if people don't mind waiting until after Christmas for the blanks to be drilled for your bolt pattern.
