One of two things will happen...they will be ok for club racing and personal preference; but illegal for sanctioned events...

But in the end I foresee them being short-run production and PL will make their money off them and quit; but we shall see.

I think the V2 wheels are great (dimensionally) for *most* tracks and drivers. I kinda think the V3's would have their place on super rough tracks or larger high-speed tracks, but not necessary for most club/smaller tracks.

And what about the VP-PRO "wider" cutoff combo, with a standart wheel/tire on the front and wider wheel/tire on the rear? Are the rear "wider" VP-pro as wider than the PL V3?
If a lot of company's start to do a wider rear wheels will be impossibe to ROAR make all ilegal. Are ROAR fixing a max wheel width in your rules?

IFMAR is an international body thus separate from any regional ruling making them legal.

I believe they are about the same width-wise. Only difference was VP-pro wider concept tires were released way before Proline advertised theirs and were offered to drivers to test out at the last IFMAR Worlds event.
