So, I am building this neat tire, a 3.2 Rock Lizard. It will be a conglomeration of a bunch of tire parts I had kicking around and it appears to be super flexy in the tread, no foam of course.

I will be modding the tread face a bit, I think, but they look awesome with the EMaxx size wheel, grippy feeling tread and should have sweet sidehilling tendencies, I suspect....
Pics coming tonight!

Opinions welcome! Any links to whether its been done before would be neat, too. :rolleyes:

These turned out well, they are super soft and just a tad over 5" tall. Just not a 2.2 anymore.
Gonna test em on steep stuff on Sunday somewhere. Got some ideas for the tread also.

hey Mike , nice tire ! Its funny I am making a set just like those lizards/maxx rim ,
I planned to use them for my maxx as a cool looking low profile street tire .
I cut out about 1 inch of tread to get a good fit on the rim .
you don't have a set of 40 series fat joes narrowed with clod buster side walls do you .lol(all most finished )

Nope. These are a result of the 1/8 buggy Badlands bead and a remnant set of Lizard "skin".

Looks bling, and I will let you know if it works ok on slick sidehilling.
