Default Got my tires on

Added 6g of weight to each wheel inside. Super swampers with foam.
Handle side hill and uphill inclines no problem. My phone level said 45 degrees but that may be a degree or two off from the buttons in the phone.

Just waiting on my new SUV body post from shapeways as the first one I ordered broke.

Looks great. Aftermarket tires make a huge difference on this truck

For sure. I canít wait to get it in real world but it handled well on some broken cinder blocks thrown around.
Iím not sure if I should of left the foam out but too late now. Worse case I order another set in future when these wear out.

Doh....
Next time.
I do switch inbetween a heavier body tho so I was worried the tires would just fold.
Maybe Iíll order another set. Donít want to try and take these off and ruin them.

These are out of stock now but may come across fleaBay. Not as good as the RC4WD tires but better than the little ATs.

Look at getting some Scramblers if you want them big. Theyíre AT but sticky and conform well foamless on lighter rigs.

I have tall scramblers and without foams, I could not sidehill much at all. I went with the softest micro wheel foam I could find.

Almost as soft as foamless. But with some support for side hilling. But Im using a very tall and flimsy micro tire.
