Default Hey,so interesting-Proline follows VP PRO

hehe。......couples of weeks ago, i saw VP PRO release their wider tyre..and felt that was awesome . but the most interesting is ...yesterday Proline release wider tyre ...wow,it must be a trend ,but how can the US drivers use if illegal of ROAR, i think ROAR maybe consider adjusting the rules.

Anyway, VP PRO was doing a good job to creat the trend

How much wider are they and I would think it could help us to get more mileage out of a set of tires.

Good grief. First the LPR truggy tires are getting narrower and now the buggy tires are getting wider. Pretty soon there won't be a difference between buggy and truggy tires.

I bet these wider tires might help to absorbs ruts like a Truggy.

The wider tires are legal for ifmar. Not legal for roar. That's why they're out there.

i know that the total width will be unchanged when mounting VP wider tyre, also the US test report shows awesome result, so the proline thought this idea is very acceptable and finally couldnt wait to release their own ones.......

i ran a set of these for a un named proline driver almost 2 months ago. The wear is very good. I got to do practice, qualifying and the main on them, then hand them back. Our track is VERY hard on tires.

I would imagine the proline wider tyres have been around for a while now, i would guess that even proline would struggle to create new tryes in 2 weeks
