Hah, I was thinking about that thread when he replied that and completely forgot about my post in it. Truthfully I think there is a better chance for the tires than axles. The nanos would have been very small and there have been manufacturing issues and they likely would have been rather expensive. While you could say they may not have sold many I doubt they sell a whole lot of some of the other 1/10 axles like the worm. Tires are cheaper and easier to make and the lower final cost and ability to work on a 100% stock truck with no fabrication means more people will buy them

I'd love to see an alternative to the Miclow tire.

I put in a vote for BFG AT's, and for procomp xtreme AT's. both good tires for the rigs that run road and occasional trails. I also agree the MTR is a good choice.

I am not sure if there is anything they can do to the compound to make it a bit stickier, everyone always loves the Mclaws, but I actually dislike them greatly due to there size.

hopefully it pans out and they start to get some of these things back into the mainstream.

My vote is for the pit bull rockers or the super swamper tsl or ssr. But really would love a set of tractor tires also. Thanks for all the time u put in to contact them hopefully we can get more options for tires

If that turned out to be the case I would be irate. I am spending hours compiling tire choices to offer for voting on based off of their customer support staff's directions.

I would also like to see some BFG all terrain tires. The TSL Swampers would be nice as well.

I lurk these forums a lot but never post anything. I'll have to start posting in hopes to get the crowd back.

When I get further word from RC4WD I will set up an official poll thread to vote on some set choices based off what I have heard from the community. I see there is a poll option and I'm assuming I can list many choices to vote on?

First post ,newbie, glad to be here, I'm a follower on a couple Facebook groups and thought i should try out this forum,with that said I vote rock creepers, deep lugs ,plenty of patterns to create, plus they already have them in other sizes so it shouldn't be a big deal to make,and may come out sooner, can't wait to get new tires for my crew cab

There is a member here that makes Tractor Tires... i bought a set and really like them...

I need to make bump stops or grind the body to tuck the tires as they bind up the truck....

I totally agree... I dont want this thing a huge truck... I would love a factory sized tire, maybe a 35" scaled tire....

Here is my truck when I was mocking up what I want to do... Mind you if I went with the BFG it wouldnt sit that high it is just the mockup if the leafs were on made it that way and I didnt like all the extra height thus decided to go the rest of the way and put boggers on it...

Also the tire under the frame I found at the soccer field and I have no clue what type it is. Most likely from some kids toy as it fell off...

Yeah I also got a couple sets of those tires, but make sure you hold on to those tires, MGCrawler has been M.I.A. For awhile now. I've tried to contact him. Email..., snail mail..., nothin. Have to say I miss his builds. It would be nice to have a hollow set of tractor tires though. The ones I have are so solid their jarring just to watch. Also, a smaller size for 1/24-1/25 scale trucks would be nice. I felt those tractor tires were a little large for that scale. Here's mine on a 1:20 Nissan.
