Would be great to see plans for a tadpole recumbent fat tire. I assume you could possibly use the tadpole plan and add fat tires but not sure if the frame would be tough enough for off road riding?

Are you talking about those double wide rims I see on winter mountain bikes?
Are they available in 2 inch?

Anything can be done though.
Go right off the deep end and lace some car wheels on your beast!
That would make for one cool looking ride.

Looks like your run of the mill hub, just laced to a double wide rim.
Can't tell from the pics, but I think those are 26" wheels.
You would have to widen the trike so that the tires have room to turn.

Not sure how strong those wheels would be laterally either.
