The JConcepts Ruptures and Scorpios are tall tires at 5.94"/5.98". Some Crawler Innovations Double Deuce 6.0" will also help them with the overall diameter you want...plus they help performance.

Duratrax Deepwoods are ginormous too. Without a hard measurement, they're roughly 1/4" taller than a 2.2" Hyrax. They also outperform my Hyrax's in most situations, they just really need some firmer foams, they're cheaper too.

If dragging diffs is your primary concern, going with a narrower track width (narrower wheel hexes, narrower wheels, narrower hubs) will help in many situations by giving a greater breakover angle between tires (from tire, to axle, to the other tire on the same axle.)

narrowing is a great idea i honestly never even thought of that as a option i did end up choosing the deepwoods i need something with some height because where i climb there is a lot of big rocks laying on each other so there are big gaps that i need to get over and i just upgrade to xtra speed steel axle housings and it seems like with the orignal tires the pumpkin hits rock walls before the tires get the chance also my bumper is broken but nbd i got a steel chassis on its way now thanks for the info
