They are the lower profile tire and wheel for truggys. Similar to Proline LPR wheel and tire

In most cases that means 3.7" rims or in this case 3.7" inner bead on the tire.

Monster Truck wheels are mostly 3.2" and this is "half a size up" and there for called "half ups".
Some time back we used to have LPR/Half up (3.7") rims and stretched a monster truck tire (3.2") over those rims.

Now a days many truggy 1/8 wheels are 4.0" and mount a bit different.

3.2" is called - Monster Truck / MT / Truck
3.7" is called - LPR / half ups
4.0" is called - Truggy / VTR
Life's like a lemon and I want my money back!
