Default Spinners???

Ok, i don't actually have a monster truck, its big so i thoguht this would be the best place to ask, but i have a hummer H2 i'm doing some customising to, and i've made some spinners that work pretty good, but they don't look real enough, so i was wondering if there was any that i could buy somewhere ont he net or something that i might could modify to fit this. . . . .

I am not sure if they would fit your truck, you gonna need to change the tires, and they are big

Is that the 1/6 scale tyco or something thats at like wal-mart?you may have to do some looking to find some wheels with spinners to fit.What have you made and what doesn't look so hot finish or cut.It ma1y be easier to make than find.

OK, you like what you like, but no one said i couldn't have an opinion. not particularly having a go at you, just expressing my views in a public place.

I'm also not having a go just cos its not a proper RC, i just think the hummer is a horrible looking thing, then they go and make it even uglier, and take away most of its off road ability too, sign of the times when something thats worse than its predecessor can sell better.

But did they make the Hummer H2 to go off-road? don't you think they would have made it differently if they wanted it to go off road? I don't particularly like the look of the H2 but if i had the money i would buy one.

i guess if you like it and can afford it, who am i too argue, i personally wouldnt buy an off road "style" vehicle, id want one that did what it said on the tin, if you get my drift.

I think patriotism has a say here too, as far as im aware, the hummer is very American, so makes an american feel good about driving it?

im the same about Landrovers i suppose and even with them im not so enamoured of the newer ones, getting a bit soft and flabby in my opinion, theres still not very many production cars in the world that'll go where a short wheelbase LR Defender will go though.

If you like a car then its pretty easy to overlook its short comings.

Anyway, i apologise for my first post in this thread, been struggling with 3 broken pc's and a stroppy 2 year old today, been a bit frustrated!

How about we keep this topic on subject, which is about the spinners to go on an R/C vehicle, not talking about REAL cars.....
