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.
