Default Larger Tire Options - FG Stadium

I'm in the process of getting an FG Stadium and I'd like to know if I have any options for larger tires??

The FG Monster Tires look good, but if I can find something a bit bigger that will fit and not cause problems, that'd be excellent.

Any input from you guys would be very helpful, as I'm new to the Large Scale scene!!

the monster truck tires will not fit on the front, they will hit the side of the body when you try to turn them.

Why get a stadium truck, if you wanted larger tires?

Darn good question. I traded 1 for 1 for a New FG Stadium Truck.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the option to choose between the monster or the ST.

This FG Stadium truck comes with an Hummer H2 body, which is the same as on the FG Monster Truck. The bigger tires will fit with no problem.

I think when RC NUTS said the tires will rub on the stadium,,he must mean the stadium truck top(body) as it sits lower and MT tires will rub.
Stadium truck also comes or once came with a different pickup body,not just the jeep and hummer top.

Good information, thanks for the help.

So if I get a set of FG M/T wheels/Tires -- I should be ok on the truck then.
