Some tires used on modern armored vehicles (assuming I did the math right):

325/85 R15 XML, diam = 36.8 inches, used on Mowag Piranha II, AKA Stryker,
365/80 R20 XZL, diam = 43 inches, used on Mowag Piranha III
1400 R20 XL, diam = 49 inches, used on French AMX 10 RC and M1117 Guardian

> I have an old RC Monster truck with a cracked chassis I've been thinking
of making into some sort of Soviet armored car. The problem I see is my
wheels, the wheels I  have are huge, some 5" across, which makes them
around 3' in 1/6th scale. I'm also unsure what to model it after. If anyone
knows of a nifty WW2 Soviet armored car with monster tires let me know ;-)
