LPR is like a highly refined, low profile T-maxx tire. VTR is like a big buggy tire.

If proline had wanted to I am sure they could have made a rim/tyre similar to a SC setup with offset rim/tyre size but in reverse and then it would comply...obviously they didnt want to make it ROAR legal to begin with.

Yes, you can run calibers on a different set of wheels, I did it at the nat's. The tire's aren't illegal the wheels are.

How are you guys mounting them on other wheels? I don't see how they would mount right on without any modification.

There is no mod to be done, just take your time mounting them
Matt, I had my fastest times at Farmers with this set up. Not so much tire roll at all.
