NOTE: Due to the different methods used to design an manufacture tires and wheels, RC4WD can not guarantee the fit between RC4WD wheels/tires and other brands of wheel and tires. For the best results, use RC4WD tires and wheels together. In some cases RC4WD wheels and tires will work with other brand wheels and tires, but RC4WD can not guarantee the outcome.
I actually own these in multiple sizes, on multiple vehicles. This particular size is a good alternative to the stock Scx10.3 Nittos, and I run them mounted on such on RC4WD Mickey Thompson Classic Lock 1.9 wheels, (with +6 offset hubs, and +8 offset hexes).
I mainly use them for running through mud, snow, and grass, where they are well suited, due to the lug design. I tend to run faster setups, and do less actually rock crawling, so I prefer Crawler Innovations two stage foams with heavy outers. Foam choice is subjective to where one plans to run of course, and personal preference do vary, but a softer foam would probably be better for slower driving over rougher terrain, unless you run a very heavy rig.
They are a moderately soft, fairly grippy tire, but still stiff enough with the included foams to maintain their shape fairly well turning at walking speed without collapsing too much in my experience. They will still roll somewhat however, and even with the stiffer foams that I run, they will have a tendency to chip away the outer lugs when turning on asphalt at walking speeds or higher. They are definitely not a “road tire” for that reason, but I do run them out in the parking lot quite a bit when there are puddles to slosh through, and they do well enough on my setup, running in the 10 to 15 mph range.
In terms of actual crawling, I find that they do well on dry river rock, concrete curbs, large tree roots, etc, or anywhere really where the surface is rough enough for good grip. They can begin to slip on wet river rock, and smoother bark surfaces when also wet, but my experience in this is probably impacted greatly by my choice of harder foams. Softer foams would likely remedy much of this slippage I have experienced in many cases.
Primarily though, I like running “fast”, (for a crawler), through mud and snow, and that is where these excel in my experience. There are definitely softer and more grippy tires available for more traditional crawling, but I need a more “all around” tire, and I find these fit that bill quite well.
