Default Proline Recoils

Whos running them? How do you like them? I currently run Crime Fighters and Revolvers and want to get a new set before Proline Gas Champs and was wondering opinions on this tire? All I've heard is whats on the Proline site, and I like that they last long. Thanks!

Instead of Recoils, try Calibers, Snipers, or Holeshots depending on how hard pack the track gets.

just throwing this out there, i have calibers on my slash and crimefighters on my inferno, and they tear the track up. Was running my inferno in the lawn a little bit, now my yard is a dirt track in itself. The M2 crimefighters are tough as nails too.

Recoil's are good on hard pack with a bit of dust on top. They last pretty well too on most surfaces. Definitely a different style tire.

I bought 2 sets of recoils at the beginning of the season 1 m2 and 1 m3. Well I nicknamed them the banana peels. The only place they worked (and it was only the m3's) was an indoor clay track. Calibers and revolvers are almost always better.

I had good luck with m3 recoils at ARC and thunder alley when dirt is watered. They last at least twice as long as calibers, from my experience.

City block, i beams are long lasting if you want a lasting tire. Preferable i love hole shots but they only last a day or so but when i can find some and get them for free i do. LOL after a big race there are always sponsored drivers tosing tires just gotta ask them if you can take em instead of tossing them. Other than that calibers are really good for almost all conditions i would say.

Thanks for all the replies. I run at TA a lot so maybe. From the looks of it I would be better off checking out something else. I think I'm going to check the AKAs out. Ive only ran Prolines so we'll see how that goes!

Pro Line will be giving out Calibers as handout tires to all sportsman entrees for the Gas Champs.
