    New moab xl's vs canyon at's

    I just thought I would start a new thread to post some pictures of my new moab xl's with narrow axial rocksters. And for all of you that want to see how they compare to the stock canyon at's, these pictures might help. I like the look of the black rims. Although they are skinnier than the canyons, I think I like them quite a bit and I believe they will work well for all purposes. The moabs are skinnier and slightly taller than the canyons, and also considerably firmer, so they should last for a while. I also thought I would throw them on my S-maxx while I was at it, and they look good on that truck too. Now I just need to drive the heck out of them.
    If you have any questions, I can do my best to answer them.

    I believe that the rocksters are zero offset, and the geodes are 20mm offset (meaning the hex is 20mm farther out). However, the overall width of the truck (to the outsides of the tires) does not change much with either set of tires. With the rocksters the width is about 17 and 1/2" while the width with the geodes is about 17". So the rocksters increase the width just a little bit. I also got my first chance to run the new tires today. I drove them primarily on the street (I know, it contradicts my signature ), and they did well. I also got a chance to do a little bit of crawling (not hardcore) with them and I would say they did quite well (almost as good as my canyons at first glance). I am looking forward to testing their abilities further.
