    Anybody running wide axial beadlocks with rockcrushers or mudslingers?

    Would like to know how it looks before I buy some, really curious on the crushers. I know they need to be on narrow wheels, and will narrow mine if need be. Any pics would be appreciated!

    I've seen the rock locs on wide rims didn't look right or perform as well.
    He narrowed the axials and they look and perform better.i ran the crushers on narrow rims didn't like them look good but don't perform very well depending on what you are doing.slingers are very popular and seem to work well.

    I am running the Axial eight spoke with mudslingers. I cut every other lug and star cut the foams. I feel they perform better than the Canyons on the rocks. The front wheels are weighted and the canyons were not so that might not be a fair comparison. As the slingers wear the grip seems to get better. The inner bead lock ring will rub on the front. I am now going to trim the rings thanks to the tip from German. Sorry no pictures.

    OP keep in mind that a few of the axial wide beadlock rims will rub pretty hardcore on the Revo/ERBE/Summit Front suspension arms and Front Turnbuckles

    I was thinking about trying to bend the turnbuckles out of the way. I don't know if hub extenders would solve the rubbing problem.

    A smaller inner ring would solve the problem, but they don't make one, and i haven't seen anyone else make one.
    I don't even think you would have to take an 1/8th of an inch off that inner radius of those rings and they would be fine.

    Don't bend your turnbuckles. that will just cause more issues.
    Extenders will only make it worse before it gets better. (if im thinking about that geometry correctly)

    That's weird. I'm running ax8017 wheels and mud slingers and I took the inner ring off and they still rubbed with no extensions. I ended up taking 1 inch out of the center of the wheel to make it work.

    I now have 12mm offset but 3mm is all that was needed to clear the inner rings from the tierods on maximum steering lock.

    How does the glued side Lugs box up? Have you ripped any off. I kinda like that idea.
