Default Wheels and tires for my super class crawler...super easy newb question

Hello, been out of crawling for so long can't even begin to remember what size or how to find wheels and tires for my super class crawler. What I do remember is I think this is a 1/8th scale rig with a specific nut size for the wheel hub to mount on,....

The question I have is, what are the keywords that I need to look for to find the right size wheels and tires for my crawler? 2.2 is the 1/10 scale crawler, what does 2.2 mean and what are the reference specifics for my 1/8th scale super? Thanks.

^ super class, not the 1/10th scale. I figured it out, they are 3.8 tires.

2.2 and 4.0 are the inner diameter of the tire

1/8 is usaally considered 4.0 though sometimes they come up as 3.8

not to get confused with the 3.2 which some 1/8s come with like the xtm these were the original emaxx tire size i think

okay, all very cornfusing for a guy like me who's been out of it so long I gotta re-learn every thing again. I have a super class pimp cane that needs some really big tires and wheels with 17mm hubs. It ain't as small as 1/10th scale, and it ain't as big as 1/5th, so I'm thinking it's 1/8th.

4.0 is helpful.

Go with proline Trenchers in the 40 series size for the side wall. It's pretty much the standard for super tires.

class is generally determined by wheelbase

2.2 class or 1/10 is 12 1/2" wheelbase and use 2.2" inside diameter tires with 12mm hex hubs
super class or 1/8 is 18" and use 4.0" tires with 23mm hex hubs
some crawlers use-used 17mm hubs and use 3.2 or 4.0 tires

all this is not carved in stone but will give you a start.
it is confusing but with some patience, a lot of reading, looking at build threads, and asking questions it will all become clear

3.2 tires are not too common for crawlers most use 4.0 (3.
there are glueon wheels and beadlocks. 17mm beadlocks are not too common
but you can easily get adapters to go to 23mm hexes which are a bit more common. there are several types of adapters
