Since you guys want it to be 45mm wide, we updated the rendering.

No more changes, we start working on the mold already. This will be one wide tire.

I hate to say it but it doesnt look nearly as good as the last concept.

It honestly doesnt look like an IROK any more :nono: The inside tread and the outside lugs are all out of proportion now

X2 actually, dont wanna be a hater but you should have made it looked like the 2.2 becuse that tire looks soo much more like the 1:1 tire. Too bad.

X3 Again im really greatful for you allowing our input on this but il stick with my trail dr's if its going to look like that:cryin:, the increased width has left the centre lugs looking too small and that ridge still runs between the contact patch and the sidewall (the 2.2 dosnt have it:blink:), I think the last rendering was more effective :nice:

Thank you RC4WD for building these......but ditto, the 2.2 looks great. These look like some kinda goofy MT

Ive had IROKs on 3 different trucks and very well aware of what they look like......sorry to say this has missed the bar a little

WOW!! :thinking:

People wanted wide, then the don't.

When you change scale things to increase size, its going to make things look different. Just the way it goes. Save judgement when you see the proto. Even if it doesn't look like a I-Rock its still going to be an awesome looking tire.

I wouldnt worry about it... they look fine..and if they perform like the 2.2's they will sell lots of them... final tire never looks like the rendering anyway..

Will you guys just wait until you see the real thing?

if you take a 2.2 and reduce it, something tells me they are going to look very close...

read all the words in the rules... these are legal. the rules say nothing about a max height on un cut 1.9 tires..

> Wheels & Tires: Wheels are restricted to OEM 1.9 size. If the tires are cut down 2.2s, they must fit onto a standard 1.9 rim and not exceed 4.25 in height and 1.75 in width. Flywheels brand wheels and tires and 1/18-scale Nylint brand wheels and tires will be allowed. 2.0's wheels are allowed as long as the tire attached is either a stock 1.9 tire or cut & shut tire that falls into the restrictions.

would seem to fit a loophole (and be legal) as it seems to me the intent is to have tires smaller than 4.25" high. Name a 1.9 tire taller than 4.25".

I should have known someone would not see the obvious question asked, ie ANOTHER 1.9 that size, any preceeding 1.9 tire. in fact, I even changed my writing from 'another' to 'a' thinking you'd all be above that.

yokomo something aruther 4.5" been out almost a year now I believe..

there is no loophole the rule is there to keep out cut down comp tires.. but if a manufacture makes a tire that is still scale there is no problem there.. 1/8 scale a 4.5 works out to 36" tire a 1.9=15.2 is there anything wrong with that??

Yea I see what your saying when you read the rules the 4.25" is attached to the sentence about cut down tires.
But I remember the pre production 1.9 flat irons were reported to be 4.30" and proline changed them to 4.25" to be "comp legal".

Just makes me wonder if the intention of the rules really is 4.25 max?

your correct flat irons were changed to conform to USRCCA rules.. not scale rules.. the max for 1.9's on a 1.9 comp truck is 4.25... very different rules..
