    They also sell them ready-made on ebay. You might want to try Trencher tires before you go to that trouble/expense. They get a lot better traction. They're a little bigger and have a very aggressive tread pattern that seems to work on all surfaces (except I haven't gotten any snow here to try it in yet).

    they've been made many times on this forum mostly summit or emaxx sections
    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.

    My trenchers were great in snow until it becomes to deep and fluffy. The chassis just sits on the top and you get noooooooo traction at all.

    Haha! That's my point....It don't....It sits afloat on the top. If it had paddle tyres it may boat along.
