They look shorter and wider than super singles but they'll do the trick. Can you elaborate on your Ebay purchase of them, are they from an R/C car or truck?

Nice build and set of singles. I picked up a set of 1/25 scale front floatation tires from the same seller that I'm very pleased with them and he has already relisted them on eBay

My 1/16 set arrived today and they're awesome! I did some research and from what I can tell real super single tires have a tread width of about 17". These equate to a tread width of about 20", so it you're a super picky builder and obsess about stuff like that these might be too wide for you. As for my plans, I'll use two of them as-is on a lift axle for my wrecker project, and the other two as front floatation tires. I may narrow them a tad for the front. As far as I know these are the only wide tires made for 1/16 trucks so if you think you might want some I'd recommended getting them while they're available. In addition to the tires themselves being very well made I highly recommend the seller as well.

 

A special thank you to William for bringing these to our attention and providing photos! B)

Mike, Oops I 'm just learning to use a ruler. I was thinking 2 1/4" not 1 1/4" as it should be.They will fit but you won't see them it's all fenders.

They sure look real nice and will have to have a set for future builds.

Yeah, that's the drawback to using fenders with them. No one will really know you're using super singles unless you point it out.
