to go manual locking hubs or not?

what are the pro's and con's of manual locking hubs vs auto locking hub's
maxx

Auto hubs are inherently weaker than manual hubs , I changed to manual hubs on my lux after destroying auto hubs constantly. only disadvantage is that you have to get out to lock em in
HillsForThrills

Yep, that's the ONLY disadvantage... But I normally lock them when airing down anyway, so doesn't make a difference to me... Pro's however, as Maxx said, they are heaps stronger than auto hubs... They're also a lot simpler in design/operation so basically unless they break/shatter, they'll always work, whereas auto hubs can stop working due to electrical/vacuum problems but the actual hub itself is still intact...
