They kind of remind me of these
http://rc4wdstore.com/product_info.php?products_id=650

These particular tires are made for 1/10 scale crawlers, 2.2 rims.
The ones you have pictures look to be the same size.

I know there is no conversion, I'm also pretty sure they dont make tires like that to fit 1/5 scale gassers.

You should look before you leap


They do make those tires bigger.8.5" big. Just right for larger scale. they are called Jumbo swamp kong tires.Anything is possible?

I have seen those. They dont have the sizes available for the 1/5 scale wheels, unless they do, I have never seen them. I am sure someone wouldve put them on if they did have them.

Seriously, I dont think they would last. I would like to see them mounted on a Gasser though, it would be interesting.

the only way is to get some cnr 14mm axel adapters and use the imex jumbo wheels but they will only last for about a second b4 u spin the center out.

What are you talking about?
Once I see them mounted and a video from the owner showing they can take a beating as well as stating they last, then I'll believe it.
Theres an old saying "believe none of what you hear and half of what you read", I dont believe you .......

Liar , LIAR your pants are on fire. STOP NOW. You are definitly blined too. Take a better look again? You will never admit to the truth. So keep lying about it. When people show you wrong you should humble yourself ad leave it alone.

Those IMEX wheels are crap... I had the Swap Dogs on my MGT and I spun the hex right out of the center of the wheel with a sirio 27...

big,
I'm sorry big, youre right. No need to act like this in a pubkic forum.
BUT... If he could be man enough and answer my question "what am I lying about", then maybe we could resolve this fiasco. Instead, he has chosen to act like a child.
All I am looking for is an answer, plain and simple.
Can you beleive someone would act like this over a tire thread
Go figure.

You can't accept what is the truth.[sm=cry_smile.gif] If you want more anwsers go find the origional tread I found that shows the proof I provided ,because your answers were left their too. OH YEA................ So who's the MAN NOW!

How did I choose to start this fight? You accused me of being a liar. This was after I replied to you (post #7), in no way was it offensive. Your next response (post #9) was when you called me a liar. Dont tell me I started this.
Then you refuse to answer my question.

What am I lying about?????????

What original thread????????
Why dont you post it?

Thanks Speedy, I'm glad someone else notices his crackhead antics. Nothing to worry about, theres always one in the bunch.

R.R
You are quoting something I never said. Where did I state "those tire don't fit largescale". I also said "I am sure someone wouldve put them on if they did have them", which I have never seen them on any 1/5 scale gasser.
It seems you are more interested in proving others wrong than enjoying RCs for what they are.

Hi R.R, I noticed you watching

Thier must be a conversion because I have seen it and others have too.

Hi Tig I notice you're still watching and in denial about the truth.
