ATX Slab or Trailworthy Beadlocks

Tires have been chosen (37x12.5x17 MT/R's) but now i'm stuck on rim choice....

ATX Slab or Trailworthy Beadlocks?

FYI This will be run on a Artec Trussed and Armored D30 with Synergy Sector-shaft Brace.

Like stated above. The h1 wheels are 16.5 and the allure with them is the cheap 37's. Although there are other options for a 16.5 tire the military take offs are kinda stiff and are a bit heavier than the slabs would be.

My bet is that is a total factor of weight, limited tire options and the fact that the military take offs although cheap there are better 37 inch options out there.

I looked heavily at TWF and the reviews were positive but the weight and military tires swayed me

Unless you are looking at the 17 that TWF had in development

PS... does anyone have some ATX slabs and 37's we can weigh so we can put the weight thing to rest?

My personal preference is the trail ready beadlocks with their wide ring. Have 2 sets and love them so far.

I have jeeps. I do shit to them.

The slabs are a really nice wheel. Actually the same wheel as the spyderlocks, just with a different beadlock ring. They tend to balance very well even with the unpredictable MT/R. One word of warning though, the slabs and MT/R combo does require some work and technique to mount. The first wheel might kick your ass but once you get it down you should be down to about 10-15 mins tops per wheel/tire.

If you do go with the slabs just search for the suggested install techniques or just ask and you'll be helped/guided.

My suggestion would be the slabs for a dd v/s tw's but that's just my opinion....
