Crawler 9398 4x4 first mod9398 crawler tyres
Posted 09 December 2012 - 12:54 AM
So ... to the 9398, excellent machine, huge fun to build and watch watch it move its first metres...!
I spent some time yesterday playing in the snow... stock tyres are really NOT OK for off roading!
I got myself four <Hpi Racing Ground Assault>, soooo much better.
Only drawback: they're too wide and , unless you glue them, they stay off the rim on the external side...

I hope you will post some pictures from your first MODs from the 9398 and what Dluders already said you can find much better tires at the 3rd-party topic.
I wish you and your girlfriend a lot of fun with building again

They are really coming out of the rim.... but I did not want to glue them onto the rims...

On this Eurobricks post, there are several pictures of Hollowpoint Scale Comp 2.2 Tires mounted on the 22969 "Power Puller" wheels:
RECOMMENDATION: Although third-party, RC-type tires DO FIT on the Lego 22969 Power Puller wheels, the protruding outer flange of the wheel looks a bit odd. Since those wheels are rare and expensive, I recommend using common Lego 44772 wheels for Lego Technic vehicles with fenders. If you have an articulated Lego Rock Crawler (without fenders), then you can select among many of these sizes of tires in the chart below. I'm sure there are other RC tire manufacturers in other countries that would have tires in the ~2" (51mm) width range.
