I didn't add it because I honestly think it is a ugly unrealistic looking tire. I can add it though.

Sorry to hurt your feelings but I Just happen to own that set that you think is ugly. Ugly or not it should be added as it's still falls under rc monster truck tire .Now onto the Big Kong tires....ahahaha :)

You do realise that Tad is posting these pics to help others out? Maybe post a pic of your B&H tyres alongside Clod tyres and any others that you might have.

I need to evolve Clodbuster style - I have 5 sets of Clod wheels and tires all Tamiya lol. I thought I had good variety because some tires are old and softer, more worn, etc...some wheels I have painted, some chrome, painted lug nuts, even one set original white. My variety is not as cool as what I see here :( lol ;)
Monster trucks rule :)

Didn't hurt my feelings but yours seem to be.

There has been a ton of tires made for the clod over the years. There is no way I can take a photo of them all in one pic.

I will get a pic of them for you soon. This photo was to compare the wheels on the same tires and size comparison to a few others.

Failed, the B&H tyres are also replicant of a true kind of tire:

Unfortunately I don't have my B&H tyres in this pic as it is quite old. Also unfortunately I don't own as many tyres as Tad! I don't own most of these tyres anymore, but it is a comparison shot nonetheless.

GP (265 grams), TXT-2 (250 grams), Rumbles (325 grams), Stock Clod (350 grams). All clod/TXT wheels weighed with a clod hub.

It being a V tread I guess makes it realistic. I have yet to see a 66 inch monster truck tire with a paddle tread like they have.

I've not seen a V-tread (in real life meaning 1:1 ) with a back-cut, but it is interesting.

I'm just happy to see more info on tires coming out. If I missed it.... how's the compound on the Jconcepts tires?
That's the one thing with clod tires... kinda' hard compound-wise.

The tires come in two compounds. Blue and gold. The blue is softer for dirt and the gold is harder for carpet racing.

They work great on carpet and dirt. My new favorite tire to race with. The wheels are very nice. They have nice options.
