Yeah, the only good thing about the XB is that the shell are painted by Tamiya... (I am usually lazy about painting them..!)

Just get the 1.9" crawler tires. The Tamiya air tires are always too hard. Good for wear but not so good for grip.

Those are the same tires that come with the M1025 Humvee. I had one before, and the tires were very hard. I eventually "upgraded" to Pajero tires

The F350 tires are actually harder than the Pajero tires. There are better 1.9 tires out there (rock crushers, rc4wd mud slingers, proline flat irons etc.) but they're all too big to fit the Pajero's wheel arches. You would need a massive body lift..

actually the RC4WD 1.9 mudslingers, rock creepers, and prowlers are the same height as the F-350 hi-lift tires, and they will fit the pajero and the jeep just fine. most guys are putting longer shocks on the rear for more travel,and with that raising the rear,and adding a small spacer (1/4") under each front body mount,they clear just fine. the RC4WD rockcrushers,outcroppers,tomahawks,etc., and the losi rock claws are about a 1/4" taller than the F-350 tires,and the pro-line flat irons are the tallest of the bunch.first are 1.9 mud slingers,then 1.9 rock creepers, and losi rock claws.

I was just think that installing F350 tires onto 31mm wheels, make them a little more beefy...and reduce hights...like Wild Willy 2 use the same tires as LB, but on little bigger wheels[X(]

It was an awesome run indeed, drifting in the dirt is fun! Next time we should hit the trail, but first I have to figure out a way to keep the rear tires from slipping on the wheels without using CA glue. After yesterday's run, the tires were filled with sand, and it would be hard to drain them out if the tires were glued. By the way post some pics of your awesome custom aluminum modifications! [8D]

Cause I'm cheap And the amount of sand and dirt that can get inside the tires is unbelievable... If i glue them on then I won't be able to drain them out. Anyway I tried using some thin double-sided tape. The tires don't slip now They should hold up when crawling, but once I hit the sand again I think the tape will lose its grip...
