Hutchinson vs. ATX Slabs

I'm looking at getting some new wheels, and have narrowed it down to the Rock monsters and Slabs. I love the looks of both, but need help deciding. Anyone have experience running these.

The ATX beadlocks are cool but Hutchison has always been known for quality.

I kind of like the fact that the Hutchson captures both the inside and outside bead of the tire. But it is heavy.

ATX slabs! You can find pretty good deals on them too.

That's exactly why I'm leaning toward the Hutchinson's. I also considered the AEV beads (since in currently running the argent Pintlers) but just looking for a different look.

Have drooled over the Hutch for awhile now... but the local tire shops around here won't touch them, not even for balancing only.

Anyone have experience with having these balanced in Denver metro?
