Default Proline LPR and VTR

Just trying to find the difference in the LPR tires and VTR tires. I know they have different mounting beads, but what else and which might be a better choice?

LPR = 3.8" wheel
VTR = 4.0" wheel = less sidewall

VTR tires are the lightest you can get for truggy.

VTR caliber are the best tires I ran so far on my truggy

I got a set of the VTR calibers and they are great. After I glued them, they were at an almost perfect balance. Hooked up better then my AKA city blocks. Thanks guys!

Do the proline 4.0 VTR's come in bowties and crimefighters? I have the calibers and i have seen the revolvers, and also holeshots, but I havent seen the bows or crimes. Am I missing something here or are they just not out yet?

Proline has said nothing of releasing the bow's or crime's in VTR....maybe they have something up their sleeve we dont know about yet.

huh, I hope they do release them, I love that combination in the 3.7 as many do. But on that back of my Caliber plastic resealable package it still lists the Bow's and Crime's along with the shots, calibers, and revolvers tread patterns. Thats why I thought they made them in the VTR.

Imo there are better alternatives to bows and crimes.

the sidewall is the same it is the inner diameter of the wheel that is bigger now. if you take an lpr and vtr stand them next to each other you will see where the change is. ive already mounted panther raptors with the proline foams on the vtrs. only thing is you have to buy a set of vtr tires to get the foams. maybe they will offer the foams soon. anyways the vtr wheels and tires are very nice and work really well , very happy with them.

For any of you Truggy guys that would like to continue running the
Proline VTR tires and wheels at the Florida State Offroad races, please
send me an email to: truggyvtr@gmail.com


Please include the following:

1-Your Name
2-Sportsman or Pro Truggy

There is no guarantee that this will pass, however I feel this will work
faster than going from driver to driver signing a petition at an event.
I will just forward all the emails to the proper person, and hopefully
your emails will be read and it will all work out.

The smaller sidewall of the vtr is better for high bite tracks. The Crimes and Bows are for more rough and loamy tracks were a little sidewall flex is needed.
