my guess is theyre from the CC-01 honda CRV and just re-used them, like the highlift wheels are from the mu and the wheels from the h- lux are from the pajero.. just chromed. so my guess is that the wheels are from something alwready out and the tires are the honda CRV ones

Hey i narrowed a set of mini monster baja tires and they look pretty good very soft and easy to narrow.. they fit great on the standard 1.9 rim.



I should have left one row of lugs in but I will for the next set..
HA, HA, I'm back!

How on earth can you narrow tyres and still have them in one piece at the end of it! I would just end up with a puddle of melted tyre.

So well done

Default 1.9's

These were an experiment that worked out well for my Power Wagon
Cut-n-shut 2.2 Rock Lizards mounted on HPI wheels

Im using nonarrowed mini LST tires on narrowed wheels with a semisoft foam out of a mudslinger. they puff up nicely for a un 1.9 wheel thats smaller than a high lift.

On the left a 1.9 slinger next my Mini LST claw next same tire on a un narrowed rim last on the right a stock VMG.

Default tires

so i was packing up some of my kids toys he doesnt play with anymore,i came across a polaris predator atv,the tires looked like 1.9,i tried they fit great,i love the front tires but only have 2 of them,tommorow its off to the dollar stores to find another 4wheeler,there harder than highlift tires but look decent and do pretty good in mud,grips good on carpet,the rear tires fit the hpi 31mm rims great.the atv is made in china,no manufacture listed on it,its a battery powered r/c....and it sucks.

Is there a demand for SDI trail Dr.....?

All my rims have tires except my 2.2s( wich should have tires, considering the rig is waiting) and I debated a day or two before getting 1.9 RC4WD slingers.....looking here for a list of alternatives...I ordered some trail Dr.s before getting to the ? or finishing the thread,.....?

And I haven't even started another truck yet........the trail Dr.s are the first peice of a series Rover that doesn't yet exist........?

I read that the f350 tires are softer than the bfg's, but how do they compare to the soft trail doctors and some of the new 1.9's that RC4wd is making?

They are hard as a rock compared to Trail Doctors and Rock Crushers.
I have a set of 1.9 Rock Crushers and my friend just changed from stock Hi-Lift tyres to Trail Doctors. Much of the fun went out of our crawling because those tyres have so much grip.

The Rock Crushers have the same diameter as HPI Geolanders but are even softer.
The Trail Doctors are a bit smaller than the stock Hi-Lift tyres. The XL size is as tall as the Rock Crusher.

i wouldnt say that , outside diameter is the same, what might happen is the trail docs makes your ride height a little (very little) lower cause they flat on the contact patch as they are softer

width of trail docs is indeed smaller

Are they? Must be the narrower width that makes them look smaller.

They look damn good on my friends Toyota.
