Has anybody seen or done it? Wondering what it will look like, rediculous or not? I dont want to spend $90 or so on a whole new set and have it look like trash. I really like this rim and tire set up. What do you think?

I have a firestorm, and i personally think it would look rediculous.... Just cause the tires would sit taller then the car. thats my oppion though, use photoshop and chop them on a firestorm.

Well thats what I'm wondering. How tall are these tires? Does anybody know? I would photoshop them but I'm not possitive on the scale of the tires.

I'm thinking they'll look good as well. I just havent seen any in person or next to a firestorm to see how they compare in size. If they look proportional I might pick up a set just to have when I go run out in the dirt. Can you post pics of them on your set up?

^^ I hope so. Is your rig considered 1/10th scale? How much did you get the rims and tires for?
