    This are the 8-hole Axials with BogJoes.



    They are looking great, they are working great (for me!), the Joe seems to be a good allround tire, and it was one of my best buys for the Summit.

    I had to turn out the inner sides of the inner rings on a lathe cause it was rubbing at an a-arm and a link, but now it works fine.

    I have big joes on the axial 8 spoke beadlocks. I use 12mm offset wheel hubs to move the wheel out so that the inner beadlock ring doesn't rub. It doesn't need 12mm offset wheel, 3mm will work but it has an almost perfectly square wheelspacing at 12mm. The tires perform great in most situations except jumping. With this wheel/tire combo there is considerably more weight. The wheels are solid compared to the geodes which you can bend with your hand and with the low profile of the big joes with the thin foams they bottom out much quicker than any other wheel/tire combo I've used. With that said, they still are one of my fav's, but don't expect to outcrawl a worn in set of canyons. (my canyons look like 4 flat tires) lol :-P
