Hey guys, just a quick question, how hard would it be to stretch a 1.55 dirt grabber over a 1.9 wheel? specifically the RC4WD 1.9 OEM beadlock.

I know the dirt grabbers are quite scale as it is but I was looking for a little less side wall. The reason I ask is because the dirt grabber doesn't seem to have that much stretching ability, it looks rather stiff just by looking at pictures (Below).

They're a pretty small sidewall. I think they'd stretch but not sure how much tire would be left... could look very low profile.

I just stretched the RC4WD MT Baja 1.55 tire over a HPI 26mm wheel. Easy to do and looks great.
