IMEX makes a decent 7" tall 2.2, the Rubicon.

so took them out to queen e park. not alot of rock but it gets the job done.
they seem to grip pretty good on the rock. but these tires like to dig if you get stuck, they also gum up. sidehilling there way better than the rock claws. other than that i cant say much until i hit up ioco or quarry rock.

so stay tuned !

when they got packed it was wet.. so it just packed itself. they didnt clean itself out..had to go the pond and wash it away. as for the molands pretty sweet but not that great on the rock the compound is pretty stiff. but it is a good trail-tire with the added height !


did ya here anything from the puller motors ?

Cavatude and i ran our badlands for the first time on friday. It was so slippery on the rocks that it was hard to walk, but i got around just fine with these tires. I cant wait to try these out on some clean, dry rock, i think they are gonna hook up!:Brunette:
