Default Which pair of shoes for submitting the X-Factor?

I am going to submit my X-Factor to the major magazines reader rides. Hopefully I can pick up some subscriptions and stuff. I am leaving it up to you guys which set of wheels/tires you like better. These aren't the final shots I will submit, I will do some good action shots for the mags.

Option 1- GST 23mm wheels/tires w/Proline adapters on Savage axles

Option 2- Ofna Titan wheels/tires w/Savage 17mm axles

Which set do you like better? Which looks better on the truck? I think I like the Titan setup better.

Survey says?

I voted for the Titan wheels becuase they look more to scale.

I like em both, but im with soilwork on this one. The titan wheels and tires look more scale, with the wider appearance.

Titan are more to scale, but I think the readers would like the GST wheels more, especially me!

I just think the rest of the truck isn't so much to scale. I mean, look at the lift! AND THE SHOCKS! OMG! ANd the blower is as big as the windshield.

IDK, that's just me, I prefer the GST.

See, I think the GST tires are too tall and make the wheelbase look too short. If you look at the side shot, you will see what I am talking about.

I'd go with the Titans and maybe lower the truck a little too. Didn't you have some Imex Jumbo claws on your Madforce? Maybe see how those look too.

Haha! I didn't build a lot of adjustability into the custom LST shock mounts. The only way I could lower the truck is the limit the shock travel by putting fuel tubing or something inside the shock bodies. Or, I could get some Muggy shocks. They are shorter aren't they? Hmmm.....

Based on the air filter scoop, I can't lower the body any.

I do have the Imex Jumbo set, but the tires are almost the exact same size. They are quite similar in height and width.
