Default Scaler Tires- Wha'ya runnin'?

Just for kicks and giggles, what tires are you guys running on your scalers? I'm currently running Mickey Thompson 1.9 Baja Claws which I like...they look good and work awesome...but...I'm thinking of trading them for some 1.9 Iroks instead...maybe even 1.9 Rok Lox...I just like the looks better. No worries lol I am on RCCrawler but thought I'd post this up here just because I can

Willing to sell them outright? Haha
I'm just running the stock flat irons, they're not too shabby.
I've also got a set of 2.2 proline super swampers that work amazing! I just hate how they fit

I ran the Flat Irons when I first pulled my TR Honcho outta the box...I was honestly kinda surprised, they did pretty good...just too short/small. I love the claws other than...well, I dunno honestly lol...I just really want the Iroks instead. I didnt see the Iroks until after I got the confirmation e-mail from RC4WD that my claws were in the mail (DOH!).

Haha I know how that is, I've got a set of mudslingers on the way that I'm pretty excited to try out, but I've been thinking about trying the baja claws aswell.

Please tell me you didnt buy 1.9 Slingers! I had a set but my god man, they are TINY! I ran MudSlinger 2.2s but they were a little too big. Killer tires for sure though. The Mickey's are pretty sweet...they're tall for sure. Not much shorter than my brothers 2.2 MudSlingers...maybe a lug height difference which isnt much at all. I put a "lift kit" on my truck now though so the 2.2 slingers would work but I hate to let my wheels go unless I come across a good deal...I have quite a pretty penny in just the outer rings lol. I'm just dying (sp?) to get my fingers in those Iroks

Guess I didnt answer your comment/question? there 1990ef... I couldnt afford to sell the Claws outright b/c I'd lose my tail, but I was thinking if someone comes with a trade for some Iroks, maybe Rok Lox, or TSL Boggers (not slingers) mounted up on some white or black steelies...I would let my entire setup go...wheels and tires mounted up with the outer locks. The outer locks only have 6 true mounting points to mount on the stock axial wheels and the others are all fake...well, they're threaded thru and cut flush on the back. I love the looks of this setup but I really like the steelies too. If anyone out there is interested, shoot me a message with some pics. and we'll talk.

Haha I can respect that, I wish that I would've gotten the 1.9 swampers instead of the 2.2s! Now I'm just stuck with putting those on my crawler instead.

Would you happen to have any pics. of the 2.2s on your truck? They have to be huge! I see they measured up at 5.7? I think?

I traded my wheels and tires local for some 2.2 mudslingers on wheels tonight. I was honestly dissapointed in the Baja Claws. I had 33x12.50-15s on my 1:1 Samurai and loved everything about them...they rode good, worked awesome offroad...thought these would be the same...I understand of course a much smaller scale so it isnt going to be identical, but they just didnt perform worth a crap IMO. I only ran them 3X though so maybe I just didnt give them enough of a chance...I just couldnt get into them. They look good though. I had Mudslinger 2.2s on my first honcho build and liked them alot... The Slinger 2.2s arent much taller than the 1.9 baja claw either. I was considering a set of 2.2 Rok Lox but man, from the measurments on RC4WD I was affraid they would be HUGE!
