Working on getting some parts together for my new Hilux project and couldn't find any 1.9 Rock Crushers locally. Got a set of M3 Flatirons with memory foam instead. The spare is now reduced and narrowed, is exactly the same height of the RC4wd 1.9 Stomper and Crusher but has a wider footprint and is a heck of allot more sticky.
4 More to go!

Looks pretty good to me, what do you think?

Ya like em huh?
I have to see them on the truck but I'm confident they'll handle better.

How about this Mike, I'll show you how to cut and glue 1 then your on your own. They're too much fun to do to have someone else cut em, but I'm glad to help if I can.

You should check out Tired's How To on cutting and reducing tires, he's the guy that told me how to do it. After you do a practice tire you'll get it no problem.
