Default 1.55 Tires on 1.9 Wheels?

I've done some searching and haven't seen anyone mention using 1.55 tires on 1.9 wheels to achieve a specific tire height.

The reason I ask, and I'm sure it's doable is that I have a new build I'm gonna start and want a tire that is closer to 4.10" -4.15" tall.

Anyone have pics of 1.55 Rock Stompers, Mud Hogs, Invaders or ? on 1.9's for reference?

Never ran them. Switched over to Pro Line TSLs on RC4WD Hummer wheels.

The Hogs are going on my 6x6.

Can we get a side view as well? I have thinking about running a 1.55 tire on a axial 1.9. Looking to lower the overall diamiter of the tire on a 1.9.

It really didn't have any effect on the overall diameter or width w/ the stock foams, just stretched out the inner diameter.

Yup.. that does help. I was looking for an alternative idea for my LR3 project.... Needed a tire/wheel combo that is shorter and narrower on a set of axial 1.9's. Think this may be a winner!
