  1. My experience with the LEGO 94.8 x 44 R Balloon tires (54120) is that they are quite sloppy and noisy. I use them for my Steppenwolf, which weighs a little more than 2kg, that's about 500gr per tire. When I move the vehicle around I can hear the tires reshaping and refitting all the time. It makes a strange grinding noise which I find quite annoying. A pure Lego way to make them less sloppy is to insert a LEGO 94.2mm D. x 22mm Motorcycle Racing Tread tire (88516) as a kind of inner tube. It adds extra tension to the tire, as if it was filled with more air. The effect is constant over the entire tire and still allows for some reshaping. After playing around with the tires on a flat surface for a while I noticed they ride a lot lighter too, with far less resistance. I can imagine this could also be of use for RC trial trucks to avoid these tires from severe misshaping under heavy circumstances, causing them to run off the rims completely. EDIT: As a nice side effect, this solution also prevents the rim from slipping inside the tire, something that has actually been reported for this tire. The motor tire expands the balloon tire slightly - diameter increases by approx. 3mm - which causes the sides of the tire to be pulled inwards slightly. This in turn causes the edges of the tire to induce more grip on the edges of the rim.
