    New to crawling and not sure what size these tires are. They will be going on a deadbolt if applicable. Let me know guys they are only 20$

    It's hard to tell but based on the measurement across the opening I'd think they were a 2.2

    It looks like they are measuring right 2-1/4" across the bead.

    I'm not sure. You'd have to have 2.2 rims for sure. Being that they are 5" tall, I'm not sure how they would look or if they would be too big. They may be too tall for it. I'm not as familiar with the deadbolt...

    Are you running just regular SCX10 axles on your Deadbolt? If you are, you MIGHT get away with the 2.2 tire if you go with the Axial 2.2 plastic beadlock rim. It has a very deep offset on it that just might keep the inside of the tire away from the ends of your steering links, but you still may have clearance issues between tire and body...

    deadbolt has 2.2 axial ripsaws on it from the factory. they are 5" tall. these should fit right on the stock rims with no issues at all. the only issue i see is the width. they may scrub the body when you turn. but you will never know till you try. where did you find those for $20. i would not mind a set.

    Pretty sure my friend is running 5" tall tires on his deadbolt with the stock rims...
