Default 1.9 XL Tire Size Comparison

I thought I would show a 1.9 XL size mounted tire comparison, because the specs given are not very accurate. Also threw in a couple 2.2s just for fun. Something like this would have helped me when buying. I don't have every XL 1.9 but hope this helps.


From Left to Right:

*Axial 1.9 Nitto Trail Grappler:
4.7 x 1.9 / 119.4mm x 48.2mm "this tire has little man syndrome"

*Proline 1.9 Super Swamper SX XL:
4.75 x 1.75 / 121mm x 44mm "seems accurate"

*Duratrax 1.9 Deep Woods:
4.6 x 1.6 / 117mm x 42mm "this tire is way bigger"

*JConcepts 1.9 Rupture:
4.92 x ? / 125mm x ? "width seems about 1.75"

*Proline 1.9 Super Swamper Bogger:
5.40 x 1.91 / 137mm x 49mm "seems accurate"

*Proline 2.2 Super Swamper SX:
5.40 x 2.05 / 137mm x 52mm "seems accurate"

*Proline 2.2 Chisel:
"Ugliest tire ever but the best tire ever made"

Nice! Thanks for sharing. It would be nice if we had a thread like this where everybody compared their mounted tires. I'll try to do the same and add a photo of my own if you don't mind. The manufacturer specs are definitely inaccurate.

Following. Would like to see where the KLR X4 sits in the mix as I have been running tall and skinny on the last two builds.

As an ubernewbie, this is both very cool and very helpful. Has anyone converted these tires to scale equivalent, i.e. 35s, 38s, 44s, etc? Or, is this common knowledge?
(note: did I mention I'm new to this stuff?)

Scale is all relative to the size of the RC and 1:1 trucks.

The SCX10III is 1:9 scale to a real JLU so 4.75 inch tires scale to 42.75 inch tires on a 1:1 (4.75 * 9 = 42.75).

Take that same chassis and replace the Jeep body with a Proline Ford Raptor (about 10.5 scale) and those same 4.75 inch tires now scale to 50 inches.

Copy that. So, swapping 1.55s onto a RedCat Gen 8 Scout doesn't necessarily net 15" scale wheels... Gotta first establish that the body is actually a true 1:10 scale body. Then run the same math on the tires...

The look I'm shooting for is similar to my last 1:1 CJ - 35s on 15s. That may not look as good in practice as it does in my head. I have a feeling there are a few sets of wheels and tires in my future
