    40s Rok Loks on AX8017 rims, Summit?

    has anyone ran 40s Rok Loks on AX8017 beadlocked rims on a summit? Thoughts? From what I'm reading most options out there are too narrow without the addition of a spacer etc.

    I'd prefer to have actual beadlocks and not have to run adaptors. My only concern so far is that the rim is wider than the tyre, guess the black chrome finish won't last long if I buy these..

    btw...tyres have been ordered already so rims must suit 40s Rok Loks.

    i ran a set similar to these but the black chrome will peel off. I wouldn't buy the black chrome but i would buy the standard black. Also these will rub the upper A Arms. you will either have to run a spacer or grind some of the beadlock away so this doesn't happen. i run the narrow beadlocks only for crawling.

    cheers, do you have much scrubbing with your setup? Any idea what the offset is?

    No rubbing at all with these wheels. The offset is the same as stock if not more. They make it seam like the track width is wider because the are a narrow rim. This is about the best picture I have showing the width of the truck.
