    ATX Slab/ Chamber vs KMC Bead-locks on My JK

    I have a 2015 Rubicon with 35in Nitto Trail Grapplers, I want to get Bead Locks, I like the Slabs but heard they are discontinued, I'm Also going to 37s on my next round of tires. Im on Stock Wheels , Spidertrax Spacers the 35in Nitto
    Trail Grapplers and Evo Enforcer 4" Lift Kit. I Know Eddie has run both which are better?

    What are you asking?

    KMC bought ATX. They are the same basic wheel.

    Was not Aware that KMC bought ATX I thought they were American Racing

    Good info. I'd like a black version of what Eric put on his JL. I like XD232 , The Chambers were way cool too, I was
    leaning toward the slabs for the wider stance provided.

    Basic Question is are the Chambers better than the current XD232 Bead Locks?
    XDs have the rings that drain and are newer style, the ATX had the non stick finish (not sure how that worked out)
    All I know was the ATX Chambers and Slabs Were proven wheels.

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
