Andy,

I kinda meant more tread pattern options for the Truggy line in the InchUp series. Sevens, Hitment, Crossbows, DoubleDees....I would love to be able to swap between the Hitmen during the day, Sevens for late afternoon and swap to the DD's at night when the track finally gets damp and grooved up...

I run on a lot of tracks where I would prefer to have a tread that is "between" your current truggy offerings. I know what Crosshairs claim to run on...I just haven't gotten the gumption to try a set and become a believer yet

I've run a set of JC DD buggy tires and liked them all around though! I'm just looking to break away from PL.

the crosshair truggies work well on just about any surface, i have run them on really hard packed blue groove and loamy conditions, they hooked up well in both situations

I was pretty impressed with J Concepts tires when I got to try some. Got a set of Goosebumps Truggy in Blue compound and the guy I got them off of mounted them up to some Proline LPR dish rims. I was amazed at how much traction they generated and how planted they felt.

Liked it enough to purchase the double dees in blue to try as well as the goose bumps in blue to try, both for buggy. Excellent tires and have held there tread quite well too.

One thing I have noticed I didn't like about proline rims recently was that the glue I use doesn't seem to stick too well to them. This is a glue I had zero issues with gluing to other brands of rims, but one tire came clean off on one side. Even my low budget advantage orange rims I got on sale at Carolinas RC for $7 for 4 had zero issues with holding.

I did pickup another set of M3 crimefighters for buggy since they are pretty good starter tire out here, but, in the future, probably will run with JC and AKA only, with a GRP thrown in as needed (love there stuff).

ivr never heard or seen of this happening, i race EVERY weekend and i dont have a problem with there rims. if prolines new tires are balanced ill try them but if not im going to try j concepts, im getting more serious into racing and i want somethin i dont have to worry about balancing, and plus ryan maifield races at my local tracks so he can help me with any issues

Ahh, I got ya. I would definitely try a set of Half-Ups CrossHairs, they really do work in nearly every situation. Maifield has been fast with those tires at every track he has run at since using them first 10 months ago.

I vote for Pro-Line, especially the Revolver is a great addition.

I don't think balancing would be such big thing, each and every tire can be balanced... compounds and patterns are lot more important.

I think in Europe JC is harder to get and more expensive. Also Pro-Line have more teamdrivers to help.

if you are just running proline buggy tires balancing isnt a issue, the truggy ones are just so out of balance its not funny, my favorite truggy tire was the m3 crimefighter, i would run them and then balance them, but after running them for a few more tanks they had to be rebalanced again, i kept fighting with them and rebalancing it wasnt as noticeble on the holeshotm3 truggy tires, but after i glued up the blue crosshairs and threw them on the truck and ran a few practice tanks and didnt have a wobble, then ran my qualifiers and the tire still wasnt wobbling, then racing my 30 min main with the same set and still having a good amount of life left, the track was really grooved up and hard packed the tires were still good enough to race last weekend, they still are good enough to run some more

Lately, we haven't needed to balance any AKA or JConcept tires. Unless you glob CA glue, they've always spun up with no vibration. If there was any, we haven't noticed it.

Maybe on truggy, but buggy has been fine so far.
