I like going through tall grass sometimes and looking for a taller/bigger tire that would raise the truck up a little bit.

You can get something like some proline mashers on 2.2 wheels or buggy wheels which are cheaper on 17mm adaptors
I just got some buggy wheels and wow they shred through the grass there like badlands

Or u can go big and get some proline 2.8 badlands. Really just some SC trenchers are all you need, unless your going through some super tall grass, like as tall as the truck

or series 30 trenchers for the rear anyways tires for the front need to be less then 4" outer diameter to avoid rubbing with the chassis

I ran 2.8 with moabs on the front without any rub on the Chassis. They are right at 5 inchs.

Are these 2.8 tires by Pro-Line?

I used Traxxas 2.8 wheels, and moded a set of Pro-Line 2.2 moabs to fit the wheels. Should give the same all around fit of the new trenchers. The Moabs are hard to find now ah days.

I'm getting the 2.8" trenchers as soon as they become available from more sellers. Got the 2.8 jato rims today for them.
