Default Pro-Line Caliber VTR Truggy Tires

Has anyone tried these tires, and how do they work. Do they only fit on the Proline VTR rims or will they fit on AKA or other brand rims? Any info>>>

i raced with my VTR Caliber M3's at revalation. It was the O donnell championship. I used the tires for all 3 qualifiers 7min each + the main was 20min It was great! Revalation hates to water there track so it was very dusty and dry! The tires still have good tread on them I'm going top use them again! I used it on my 8T 2.0
