The tires are too big IMO. They're huge. But i bet it will be a better crawler now

Yeah their big but I'm happy with them. I love the look of the tread pattern and the fact that they have some tread on the side walls.

I'm wondering if I need to make any changes to the gearing to compensate for these big tyres?

Nice hole in the ground you have there Beast. Would be good to see a mudding video if you can do it without getting your camera wet.

I found this informative post about gearing, a lot of mucking around counting teeth and stuff but if I have any heat issues with the bigger tyres I'll delve into it. I still haven't tried out the new tyres yet other than a little backyard bashing on my little pile of rocks.
