RC4WD keeps rolling out the new tires. This release should raise an eyebrow. First, the Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tires are, as the name states, made for 1.7 wheels. Second, they have a modified tread. You see, the Bogger was designed, right from the get go, to be easily modified for high performance uses such as mud racing. It’s a DOT-approved tire that can be made into what is pretty close to a paddle tire by using a tire groover tool to not just cut grooves but eliminate entire lugs. RC4WD is calling it “Siped,” but the tires are really grooved or cut.
They come molded in RC4WD’s X2 SS compound (described as super soft and super sticky) and feature inner ribbing for sidewall support. Standard foams are included. The height of these tires comes in at 4.49 in. (114.2 mm) and they are 1.6 in. (40.7 mm) wide. Expected price is $25 for a pair, but RC4WD is also offering them as singles.
If you were building a true-toscale 1/10-scale mud truck, these would be pretty close to 44″ tires on 17″ wheels.
