If you are wanting bigger tires then its not a 200mm TC you need. Its a 1:8th scale on-road car or a 1:5th scale racer.

35mm is the widest you will get for any 200mm car.

I just think for looks - the wide tires look better.

I found a set of tires from Pro-Line called Road Hawg III that are for a 2inch wheel that are 3inches tall and 1.75inches wide. That's about 45mm on the back on a stock wheel. I am going to buy these before I even break in the car.

Watch, later, when I put the stock tires back on they out do the wider ones.

What will happen to the gearing with a tire that is 1/2inch taller. Will the car still work right?
Keep an eye on your gear ratio when using taller tires it will change and if your running electric you'll cook your motor if it isn't geared right .... if your running gas make sur you tune your motor it will run better a little lean,

lol, well put jack. like 1:1 cars, it makes a huge difference in traction. Like a real viper would spin like crazy while a skyline gtr twin turbo with about 1k hp wont cuz all 4's are pulling.

You shouldnt be wooried about wieght VS engine power. Gearing and the way its built also factor into the equation. It's not like you be drag racing...well maybe u might. My nrs4 2 is built for strait line speed and only that.

Marker, You mentioned something about it should drift arond the corner like it should. The last thing you want a car to do is drift. You want your tires to hook up as good as possible. Drifting might look cool but it is slower than hooking up .
Wow these forums have gotten popular since 02!
