need some off road big size tires

Hello to all. I'm planing to build the Meng Ford F350 as a lifted truck and I wish to put under that some cool big size wheels/tires.

Does anyone know where to find something good for that? Possibly EU located

Picture to show what I got in my mind. I don't want a monster-truck look, only a bit lifted with bigger size tires.

Also I don't need a super-real-extra-detailed assembly.. This will be a fun-build, so any RC car with suitable-size wheels/tires will be ok

Joseph's stuff is amazing. Some of the best you'll ever buy.

Fair warning tho, the modern tires/wheels are 17" either Method or KMC wheels with Goodyear Wrangler tires. I have several sets and they're perfect. But.....they're 1/25 scale and on the Meng F-350 they're going to look undersized I'd think.

Here's a pic of a Revell 1/25 Raptor with the KMC wheels. This is still a WiP but on the Meng they'd look too small I think.
