VP PRO - CUTOFFS
VP PRO - MADRUNNERS
VP PRO - STRIKERS
VP PRO - TURBO TRAXS

Not in any particular order because all are great quality and have the best wear characteristics of any tire out. I have tried them all plus you cant beat the price and you can get all four in one box lol Why buy in sets of 2 unless its for a motorcycle

1. PANTHER BOA'S (MEDIUM)
2. PANTHER GATERS (SOFT)
3. LOSI STEP PIN (SILVER). WORKS WELL ON LOAM AND JUST AFTER THE TRACK IS WET BEFORE A QUICK QUALIFIER OR MAIN.
4. I DON'T HAVE A 4TH BUT I JUST ORDERED SOME AKA CROSSBRACE (SOFT) TO TRY ON THE MEDIUM PACKED, LOAMY TRACK I RACE ON. I HEAR AKA TIRES ARE THE BOMB!

here are a couple of cool facts about VP PRO Tires

Holes already in the tire. Come in packs of four. Cheaper per set than anybody else. really good tires.

JConcepts Crowbars - A great "default" tire that will work on 99% of the surfaces out there
JConcepts Crossbows - Worked great at Nationals, and works well as a complement to the Crowbar to free up the back of the car if needed
JConcepts Sevens - KILLER indoor tire
JConcepts Barcodes (coming soon) - Very fast tire on clean grooved conditions
