Excellent even in icy conditions
Bought these because of the published diameter, tires around this size are not so common because 4.75" is the thing for everyone atm. They measured abt 117mm with deep disc wheels which is great middle ground for scale looks.
The tire looks absolutely flawless, the mold used is something I would like to see as the details are almost microscopic. The warning text is also printed in miniature scale, the font is few mm's in size. This tire is first I've gotten straight from bag with perfect insert, Rc4wd has really upped their game with these X2s3 compound goodies. The foam is just right for 3.5kg crawler and gives nice reasonable displacement when static.
The tire has been driven in various conditions including freezing sand/granite climb with -6c weather and it surprisingly has really proven itself even though the tread pattern looks not so aggresive and interesting in pictures. The tread is almost self cleaning even in sand and doesnt get clogged easily and these climb even if the rock is icy as long as your wheelspeed is kept reasonable and dont start "polishing" the ice under you.
This will be my winter scale tire for 22/23, after these first hours of use they seem really promising and love this compound and freakishly accurately detailed tread and sidewalls.
