Goliath tires vs stock flux hp tires

Post by dirt_guy » Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:53 pm

I am converting my flux hp to a flux xl and am wondering what the size difference of Goliath tires vs stock tires is.  

I know the goliath tires are:

          Outer Diameter: 7.01  (177mm)
          Inner Diameter: 4.4   (112mm)
          Width: 2.84           (72mm)

But what are the specs on the stock ones?  Please forgive me but I am a newbie

If you already have the stock ones all you gotta do is measure them and compare

the stock ones are 5-7/8 high by 3-1/4"

Are the goliath ones actually narrower?

I changed out the stock tires and wheels for the Goliath tires and they are bigger but I love the improved handling and better control with the throttle. The Goliath tires are wider also but the offset is perfect to make up for the added width.

Are you guys changing the gearing to run Goliaths?

Running all stock with the Goliaths and no heat issues, then changed out the tranny for the Anza CD mod and I am running 11/48 still on the Goliaths and still no heat problems. I contribute this to the fact I run 4s.  8)
