Yes, VP-Pro Truggy tires are LPR size, same as AKA and JC wheels.

Thanks, do you see a big difference when using them? I have a few good sets of AKA foams I would like to use.

Gene the new rims, and always have used the thin glue from VP Pro. First time just started having issues. Always just took out of package and mounted up. Did the prep work and still came unglued. I am thinking its gotta be the glue?

VP-Pro buggy tires are great. Some of the best tread-life on the market. The new closed cell inserts are key. Good job.

The rims aren't so great in my experience. I buy the tire and mount to Losi or Proline rims.

Yes we have heard that recently. We now have new Thin glue, the old stuff sold out 2 weeks ago. I am not sure if it was just old or a bad batch but the new thin is very good. It is from a different supplier and super thin. I mounted 8 pairs this week and they glued up very good. Just cleaned the tire bead.

I tried them 2 years ago and they were way too stiff and heavy for me. VP-Pro tested some closed cell truggy inserts last year but the benefits did not out weigh the negatives. The extra weight and rotating mass is no good for a truggy. Maybe some of the newer style softer foams with grooves might work ok though, but I use the stock foams. VP-Pro Truggy tires/wheels/foams are the lightest ROAR legal on the market.
