Read the first post and you will see these are not hobby tires, so you wont find them "Normal Priced" anywhere. They are Flywheels toys.

You most likely wont find them anywhere but ebay now. They are discontinued. Most stores sold all of their stock on these tires. You may be lucky enough to find one here and there, but not a complete set of 4.

Only tire I couldnt get my hads on was the TSL super swampers. I have the bogger, mtrs, and trxxus. There is another off road tire, but its much to small.

they are not soft, not sticky by say moab standards, but they do grip pretty well from what I have heard. I've only ran 2 packs on mine but that was in the snow. But in the snow on dirt and pavement they gripped surprisingly well.

these are 4-1/4" in DIA but are really stiff
they fit nicely on 1/10th touring car rims too (especially the hot bodies 5 spoke inch up wheels )

im getting a set for all my cars

it says that they're 4" but my dog has one and i measured it and its 4-1/4"
at 4.25 wouldnt it be better just to go to a 2.2 wheel/tire? the 2.2 moab is 3.9 to 4.00

I bought these http://www.pro-lineracing.com/proline.html 4 of them and some rims. I had to cut the rims down and it looks like I have 20 inch rims but the tires are pretty soft and work pretty good. They gave me about 1/8th more lift.

Those are nice. They dont have much over all diameter though. And they are not 1.9s either lol! But here is a picture of the webpage for them anyway.

i used to have a set of them dirt hawgs, didnt like em. the rims were 2.2 buggy, and looks odd on my truck, that and i didnt exactly like the tire compound, soft, but dang, if you dont cut em they are real close. like tamiya hummer tires. but as for another option, they are there. i like the fact that it can be used, but not the tire itself... lol..

I found these tires/wheels from the Tamiya Land Zepher (spelling?):

here they are next to a cut up wrangler so they are smaller than most 1.9s the fronts are shortest and the narrowest (right below). the rears are wide (too wide for a pajero 1.9) and taller (left below).

the wheels are a hair bigger than 1.9s, but the tires would stay on 1.9s with some glue if the wheels were wide enough for the rear tires. the wheels they came with have bushings in the front and a metal splined sleeve pressed into the rear wheels (that fits the splines on a big rig axle), I doubt it would last in a crawler.

The tires are fairly hard, but made of a sticky compound. I am not sure if they are harder or softer than the flywheels since I have never had any.
