Default General question: 1.9" tire on VP 2.2" wheel

I want to use my VP 2.2 vintage wheels VPS06584 (1" wide) on a rig, that needs 1.9" tires. Do you know combinations of tire and rims where this is not possible? I thougjt Bout some RC4WD Wrangler MT/R 4.75" or even 4.19" Which foams you run on this combinations?

Its possible. Some tires are more difficult then others but ive done a few 1.9 tire s on a 2.2 wheel and now a 1.55 tire on a 1.9 rim

In usage of my VP Vintage wheels #VPS06584 I fitted RC4WD's MT/R 1.9" 4.75" #Z-T0158 on them.

For monuting I used M3x14 mm. In my setting the zylinder head just fits in.
At the end the 1.9" tires fit on this 1.0" wide wheel quiet well
But won't fit on an 1.2" wide WP-wheel!

See the comparison to an 2.2 #Z-T0153 on VP wheel as well.

Dremel helped me to undo 3 screws with lens head. With a small cut the flat screw driver was able to oben a scre where the hex was wasted.
Lucky that M3x9 fit there as well.

When u strip a 2mm screw try a 5/64 and the 1.5mm is a 1/16 i think

I don't usually like stretched tires, but the 1.9 MT/Rs look great on those VP 2.2s. I wish VP would make these wheels in 1.9, but when I emailed them they said they sadly have no plans to do so.
