The new proline tires are great. I tested out the caliber and revolver truggy tires in M2 compound. They were great. The track was somewhat grooved and dusty. The revolvers provided a lot of steering and left the rear a little loose. The calibers were hooked up and felt a little loose as the track dried out. I usually run i beams at this track and the calibers felt much better. The caliber tread is as much of an improvement as the cityblocks were back in December when they came out. Great job proline I also want to say that the mounting process was a snap easier than the groove method and the bond felt very solid. I am liking the new proline stuff.

I must say Pro-Line set the bar high with these tires. Although one would think they would be agressive and edgy like city blocks they are actually quite the opposite. I have raced on a couple different tracks with these in M2 compound and it is like running foam tires on carpet. Also very easy to balance and very light.

+1 on the balance. Out of 8 tires I had 2 that did not need any added weight to be balanced and 2 more that only needed a very tiny amount. The other 4 were avg about like the AKA's I have been running.
