Default Anyone running Pitbull 1.9 Rockbeast 4.45" tires on a TRX-4 Sport?

If you are running the 1.9 Rock Beast tires, not the XL, do you have any pics of your truck? I have an idea for a new body and wanted to use a little smaller Tire, but I wanted to see pics of this tire on a X4 Sport. Thanks

I have run them on mine. I just broke down the wheels they were on though - waiting on a new set for them.

How did you like running those sized tires on the TRX 4 sport?

There we go. Looks to me like it needs to tear into some dirt

I used them on my Bronco for a bit. They were too small for me because I still had the stock bumpers and hit them on everything. I feel like they would be fine on the Sport though.

These tires look a little more scale in size than the stock tires. The stock tires almost look too big. The stockers still look cool though.

They're a tad small, but with the portals it's not too big a deal.

Good deal. I'm thinking of running the 1977 Dodge Ramcharger body from Proline. I stumbled across these pictures today. The black and orange truck has the Rock Beasts on it like your truck, the red and white truck has 4.75" size tires on it.

The tires themselves work exceptionally well.

Yeah, they're tall and WIDE with a huge contact patch--one reason the TRX4 crawls so good out of the box. But it means you need to jack a body up



and/or have massive fender flares. Whoa!



Meanwhile, on a body modelled after a real-world truck it can look pretty extreme. (I know, different tires here, but you get the idea).
