I'm looking to upgrading my wheel/tyre set on my summit and after a lot of research i've decided on some Big Joes as I like the idea of having some extra stability. However i'm a bit confused as to which beadlocs to get, i've seen some Axial ones mentioned but would like to know which are best fit etc.
I assume this is the right tyre
Is this the beadlocks I need as i've seen narrow ones mentioned?

Yes you have the correct set up. Big Joe's are designed for the wide wheels, although I have seen them squeezed on a set of narrows before.
Can anyone verify that the axial wide bead locks don't rub on the summit arms?
MAN, Use Common Sense.
Outside? THERE IS NO BOX !
I bought a set of axial wheels and the inner bead lock ring rubs the A arms. BAD.!!!! I ended up taking a inch out of the center just to be able to run them. Stock wheels have a half inch offset. The axial wheels have a zero offset. So hub extensions well be needed if you go that route.
Thanks Keila I though this was the case, can anyone recommend any narrow beadlocs as the axial ones that fit are discontinued.
trotzdem schleifen die inneren Arme unten schräg stark ab, ist bei jeder Axial Beadlock Felge so, ausser bei der schmaleren Narrow...
Summit & E-Maxx
I run axial beadlocks, they rub a little on the upper a-arms but I don't think the plastic integrity or performance is compromised. The deepest cut is prolly .5 mm
BTW I run 8 spoke and they have 20mm offset.

I got the axial 40series black chrome 8 spoke rims they don't rub or anything I'm running big joes they are crazy grippy the mudslinger a rock to but you have to trim them.
I bought the axial 8017 black Chrome 8 hole ones and I put them one and they rubbed half way threw my lower A arms and rubbed the lower suspension screws down to. I took the inner bead lock ring off and the wheel still rubbed on full turns. I was cleaning mine the other day and noticed that the rear wheels just barely rubbed the lower A arm to.
