Default Help me find some Arctic Trucks style wheels/tires?

I'd love to build my TRX-4 Defender to replicate an Arctic Truck style rig like I fell in love with when visiting Iceland.

Does anyone know of some large volume and mellow tread tires and tiny deep wheels?

Thanks for the help and here's a pic for reference:

i have never seen anything like those in rc but ill bet you could make a set if you find the right tread pattern
if you dont feel comfertable cuting up perfictly good tire im sure you could find a member on here that can do it for you but they wont be cheap ether way
back before time it was comin for people to make custom tires

JConcepts has a few 2.2" wheel monster truck tires that are all about 5.5" tall and quite wide - the Rangers, the Renegades Jr., and the Fling Kings Jr.

The first two designs aren't really too far off what some of the Arctic trucks run - the third has somewhat deeper tread.

JConcepts also makes the wheels for them, they come with multiple offset hubs for getting that correct.

You might need to install the TRX-4 lift kit to get clearance, but the sidewalls on these tires will also provide a fair amount of suspension...

The Renegades would likely be best:

You might also be able to get close by using a really wide wheel.

LURC has a bunch of wheel wideners https://www.lockeduprc.com/search.asp?keyword=widener

I agree, and would also get the 2.2 MT tires. IMEX used to make a big tire too, I just don't remember the name.

Not the most scale, but I stretch some lunch box tires over some 2.2's and I love the stance. Wild Willy2 rear tires and wheels look great as well, they just have a ton of offset.

Next week, I can take a look at my tire and wheel stash to see if I have anything that would work for you.

There are chinese options in Ebay and Amazon. Not exactly what you are looking for, but pretty close
