    Sweep racing belted GT tires are great. They are a touch smaller though. measure out at 4.1" vs the stockers 4.29"

    I have em on my DM-1 but I don't like how they do not fill the wheel well of the XO-1

    Yeah that 1/4" really shows. Kinda bugs me too. But I have multiple sets of Sweeps already. And stockers are quite expensive.

    the question is...are there any other 1/7 scale belted tires or rims out there? is the XO-1 the first of its kind (dimensions wise) so its kinda hard to find aftermarket tires that's the same dimensions as the stockers?

    AFAIK even the older Ofna 1/7 DM1 only used a 4.1" tire as well.
    I have yet to see anything the size of the XO-1 tires.

    Maybe now that they are cheaper and more people will buy them as a result we might be able to see some replacements in correct size.
