Now I have to find some big fat tires. What size should I look for?

What about ply rating, tread pattern and recommended pressure.

Depends where you live. All seasons usually work Fine unless you live above the Arctic circle in which case maybe snow tires. And go big or go home.

Yes, the slats will be in the plan, but in fact they are just 40mm wide stripes of 3mm Depron, bended and stabilized with duck tape....
The tires are Multiplex Fun Cub Tires, they are great!

The wheels (and possibly full undercarriage) from the HK Tundra would also work, and are/were readily available. Have used them on other projects.
Love the design Thomas!

Went with what I have and added big wheels and flaps. Another level of fun for sure.
