Loving the new wheels and tires combo! I think they change the overall look a lot, and look much more scale to me. They look deeper dish than say the RC4WD, what brand are they, and what size? Also you mounted the front reversed, is it to have better steering scrub radius or did you want to keep the track narrower?

Thanks Fredreik. You are right, they are very deep dish rims, by rc4wd. I pre-ordered them as soon as I saw them and hoped the pitbull tires would fit.i am going for more scale, and typically big heavy trucks converted to 4x4 have widened rims up front. My goal was to keep the front tires under the front fenders as much as possible.

Even 2wd trucks run the wide front tires, as they are rated for more weight. A few of the trash trucks I have driven ran the big 420 super single up front, because that is how you can legally put 20k pounds on the front end. This Frieghtliner was running 415s up front, about twice the width of a normal steer tire.

Yup. And with the trash trucks and dump trucks having the PTO driven hydraulic pumps out front there's a lot of nose weight even empty
