medium city blocks, m2 holeshots, and jc blue crosshairs on hard surfaces
loamy wet conditions soft city blocks, jc blue crosshairds, pl m3 crimefighters


the jc tires dont need any balancing, the aka's need balancing but once you balance them they are good to go, the prolines have to be balanced almost every time they get used, it seems like there foam moves around and changes the balance

Don't forget about panther gators, they work very well and usually don't need to be balanced.

I use ProLine Badlands on muddy loose surfaces.
ProLine Crimes on most other surfaces and have a set of ProLine road rages for the tarmac

AKA.

Just last week I glued up my first set. And were they ever easy to glue. Not to mention they really seem like awesome tires.

ALL tires need balancing....i dont care what brand they are.....they might not shake like the proline's do....but they are out and would benefit from a little attention.
