Those look very nice and reasonably priced! I will determine how many sets I need and get my order to you.

Just got FMR-027 BFG 31" All-Terrains, and FMR-029 BFG 35" Krawlers (within a week of ordering them, no less!), and could not be happier with them. Count on me being a repeat customer. :D

The Revell Wrangler Rubicon has a narrower version of those Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. But yeah, the 46" versions shown in the link would be nice!

The 46" are desperately needed:

I have everything but the tires to get started with a build of this monster for my movie car collection.

I´ve just noticed you´ve already posted. Does that mean you´re not interested in adding a tires this big? Or is there still a "maybe" lurking around? ^_^

Just got FMR-029 BFG 35" Krawlers. It took 3 or 4 days from time of order. The tires look great! They are about the same size as Aoshima Super Swamper but they are a slightly wider at the tread area. The tread pattern is very nice and looks realistic. I am very happy with the purchase.

I wonder if any of these tires will fit the new F350 kit wheels

 I tried to put one on the F350 Meng wheel and it was too tight, the tire did not seal around the edges of the rim like the stock tires did. However, it seemed that the wheel could possibly be sanded down in the center to fix the problem. Fireball model works suggested that the tires can be trimmed to fit other wheels, you will have to decided for yourself on that.

The F350 kit should have scale 17" wheels and tires, and my wheels and tires are scale 15" intended for typical light sport trucks. I've read somewhere that the all-terrain tires from the Jeep Rubicon kit will fit the Meng wheels very well.

I believe the F350 is supplied with the option 18" wheels, or at least the 7 spoke wheel in the kit should scale out to 18".

 The Meng F350 wheel diameter measures: .817" in the center and .77" at the bead edge....the rim is stepped in the middle to help hold the tire on. The rim is .435" wide.

A little quick math, that scales out to 18.48", just about right if you count the rim lip.
