    Finally I pulled this down off the shelf for a bit of attention.


    The size of the Pitbull Growlers had started to bother me. At 106mm They really were just a bit too large for what I am trying to achieve.


    I had some RC4WD Mud Country tyres at 100mm so mounted them up on some GMade wheels to see how they looked.





    The overall proportions are much better, but, I only had 3 of these.


    I was debating over buying another 4 Mud Countries, or something else, when RC4WD released some new tyres.


    The new Atturo Trail Blade X/T 1.9 tyre is 100.4mm tall and only 33.8mm wide. The tread pattern is very scale in appearance, and use the X2 SS compound.


    So I ordered 4 pairs. 6x6 + 2 spares.


    I had another 3 of the GMade wheels, so got work swapping tyres and wheels around.


    The end result is spot on.











    Can your rig flex like this???











    New tyres require testing. I loaned my D110 to a trusted mate, and was joined by another good friend with his D90.


    The terrain was wet and damp and I was very impressed with how these new out of the packet tyres performed in these trying conditions.
































    Ooops
