Glue my own tires hell no. I try to always always buy premoumts. Once in awhile I have a tire come unglued but I will forego the glue on my hands, table, shirt. Etc. I have to agree caliber truggy tires do not last long none main and they just done perform like when new but that's ok I just buy more. And Proline is releasing new tread patterns constantly just not always for truggys. I use whatever brand works for the track I am on sometimes Proline sometimes aka sometimes jconcepts. I really want subculture tires for the truggy but I don't see then anywhere.

I usually only buy one set of pro lines every now and then, and I glue them myself....I haven't tried the premounts, do they come unglued too. Geeeze. What's the deal.....

And if you want closed cell foams you have to buy tires, foams, and rims, and glue all seperatly. That's silly. Glue em up at the factory with closed cell foams like AKA..that don't come off. How hard could it be????

It seems hard to get the right tires for truggy. For example

The I beam is great in buggy, but in truggy they are too big and spaced apart..the cityblock seems to be more popular in truggy for that reason....

The revolvers in buggy are perfect, but in truggy they seem too small, depending on the track though.

I can totally see why yall are frustrated, and they come unbalanced during races, and so on...

and they cost more too...

Hopefully AKA will bring out some more treads. What about J concepts, are those good in truggy???

By the way Isn't it annoying when tires come unglued during a race....UGGghh....then you have to glue up a tire that looks terrible in the end...







i run the, aka city block premounts and they havnt came unglued on my truggy and if it does il just clean off the bead and rim. and use a dab of glue no big deal, and for the truggy tires being more money yea but they last quite a bit longer than buggy tires.

i might try the jconcepts truggy premounts.

I ran Pro-Line tires for many many years and I really like them. I prefer to glue the tires myself even if I hate that!

However, you're right about the tire choice for truggy. I hope they will make the new Bow-Fighter and Sniper available for truggy.

Caliber are on my truggy and they good tires for the tracks I race on. I still have an old set of Boe-Tie that I use once and a while but they pretty worn out.

Sounds like someone needs to learn how to glue tires. Come on Frank! The shirt?? The table?? Must be using a lot of glue. Less is more when gluing tires. You don't need a lot of glue.

I will never trust JC premounts again. They are good shit, but the blue doesnt hold up, But the way I glue tires, It looks better then the premounts.

Frank you're killing me,

Really the shirt? The table I get as it "could" happen from time to time if you are in a hurry between heats. But the shirt? I gues may be if you learned how to glue your own you could beat Doogie. I was wondering when the real truth would come out. LOL.

Back to the thread,

I have been seeing some new tires in the works for Buggy and I hope some of the new tires will be made for Truggy. The PL Sniper and Bow Fighter ones would be nice for Truggy. Time will tell, but if the demand is there I bet some new Truggy tires will be out. Maybe X-Mas time? Remember the Worlds is this year so more new Buggy tires should be expected.

On Premounts? I have used them and some I like and some I don't. Usuallu depends on if I am being lazy that day or got a sweet deal on premounts, like 25 bucks a pair for Caliber VTR premounts. I think the best "premount" glue job I have found was on the old GRP buggy tires. Don't know what they used, but it almost never came apart. Now the rest of the tire/foam setup is another story

Don't know when the last time you mounted up a set of tires were, but you don't need to trim the foams. You only needed to in 1:10 buggy and truck open cell foam.

I have to say I have yet to run a PL VTR tire in truggy.

AKA CityBlocks/Ibeams and JConcepts Sevens keep me covered.

I have a set of PL VTR Calibers that I've yet to run.

If JC comes out with Truggy Subcultures, I may never run PL again. I've just about gotten away from them in buggy too; but sometimes M3 is just THE compound on some clay tracks.
