Default Tire sizes on Monster truck

I just got a set of Proline Paddle tires that I want to put on the pack of my Monster GT. They are of considerably different diameter that the stock tires on the front.
I know I would never do this on my pickup truck, but will my RC be ok?

I drive on loose surfaces where traction is weak at best (hence the paddle tires) so the tires should be able to bounce around a lot so that the driveline doesn't bind up.

This wont work. The different ratios will cause the truck to handle like crap as the back will be trying to go faster than the front! It would put a huge strain on the drive train and will cause massive amounts of understeer. If you could wheelstand everywhere you would be ok....!

Buy another set of paddles and be done with it.

Good Luck.
