Default running 2.2 tires on a scx10

is it worth running 2.2 tires on a scx10, it looks awesome but does it do anything for performance

I ran PL Hammers on mine, the added ground clearance and extra width helped alot over the stockers. I wanted a more scale-ish look and picked up some Rox Lox (1.9) which are about the same height as Hammers. But it's your rig, run what you like .

im running 2.2 TSL/SX on honcho.. you'll have to lift the body or cut the body.

no 2.2 tires wont fit on 1.9 wheels. im running the rockstar rims, they come in black or chrome. the stock ax10 wheels and stock scx10 honcho wheels are the same. but you have to buy a set of 2.2 wheels if you want to run 2.2 tires. i've also ran a set of 2.2 hammers on my truck and they are ok.. they are a smaller tire though.. personally im very glad i went to a 2.2 tire, i can take lines that i never could on my 1.9's.. they give you more ground clearance, wider tire, lots of sidewall rubber. always got hung up on rocks with my 1.9's and i can take the same line and not get hung up.. you can run any 2.2 wheel on the honcho as long as they have a 12mm wheel hex but watch the offset too.. i only have ran the rockstar's and the stock ax10/scx10 wheels.

here's my setup, because i had to cut so much out of the body i made some inner fenderwells from a margarine container to hide the electronics.

Another option is running a longer shock. This can limit up travel and keep the tires off of the body. I used some Wraith shocks with slightly trimmed Honcho body to fit 2.2 Ripsaws.

The way i look at it (not saying it looks bad or anything) is that 2.2s are made for more scale comp buggies or something to that extent. If your running in lots of snow or mud, yes, the 2.2s will help.

I like my 2.2's. Like others have said it is necessary to trim the body or lift thenbody. (I recommend trim.. lower COG) However, I don't think I can go back the 2.2's definitely improve the performance of the truck it can go many places the same setup with 1.9's cannot. For me 2.2 is the way to go.

i called axial today and it has to be the rockstars or 8 hole wheels because they have a different offset then the wraith wheels the wraith wheels will hit the suspension....im going to get the rockstars in black chrome

they're close. if you look at my previous post in this thread that is a stock scx10 honcho beadlock.

got bored and since i just bought a set of sedona's for my ax10 and got them mounted i wanted to see what they looked like.
here is a stock ax10 beadlock.

jdacus- i'll take my rig the same place you do and i'll have way less troubles than you. running 2.2's compared to 1.9's is like night and day.

I love my 2.2 TSL's. It does take away fom the scale look as mentioned however I feel the increased mobility is worth it.

i ran 2.2 for a while, but didnt like them, but im a fan of a more scale look, if you want it to perform better, go with them, if you want it to look more scaleish stay with some tall 1.9's i run irok's and they work great compared to the stockers and look great also!

Scx10 1.9 wheels use the narrow 12 mm hex....ax10 wheels use the wider hex with a center nub. 2.2 PL hammers on the honcho, 2.2 HB rovers on the ax10.....and 1.9 ripsaws on my boy's ax 10....yup he wants his wheels back!
