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.

As far as I'm concerned, that's what the 1:1's should be....They look way better as 20"s.....And I can't wait to get some....Thanks William....
