    Well, I got all 4 of the tires finished. The last two are better than the first two... The Foams after closer inspection could have been a little taller to fill out the wrinkles. If I work the tires the wrinkles go away. The main problem I see is that the foams aren't siting properly so the tires are a little lopsided. Well, I guess it's off to the store to find some foam to make it better. Once properly stuffed, they should puff out to at least 7.5 niches would me my guess judging by the amount of wrinkles.

    These tires drastically improve the handling of the rig. The throttle doesn't feel sluggish, I have my wheel speed back and the DIG actually holds better now. Now I just need to get her back on the rocks to compair performance. Best of all, the sidewalls don't fold over and I get just enough ripple that it should totally grip the rocks really nice.

    glad you got theose tires done, if you go to walmart you can get some inexpensive cell foam in the sewing section. I have used it in the past to build foams for my tires.

    NIce dude. You always did like working hard on something. I am lazy. I prefer to just take someone else product and abuse the heck out of it, then dump it when it fails and complain about how cheap it was.
