im thinking of adding a big ol 4x4 to my collection. ive been looking around doing research and ive got all the suspention componints figure out. but i need wheels and tires.. im talking like 44's and bigger i was wondering if the 1/32 monster truck tires from the usa-1 truck would be around that size?? but i dont want a full out monster truck. im building it in 1/24 scale thats why i was wondering... ive heard of the so real consepts but the price is high.... any ideas or anything is welcome

Carter, no need to use inaccurate small scale monster truck tires unless you're after that look :blink:

The SoReal tires can be had separately, or there are resin casters out there doing offroad tires, looky here:

Yes, if you plan on building more 4x4s, I would suggest bookmarking Jeff's first link. It's come in handy for me numerous times.
