I also agree that a few more truggy tread choices would be appreciated. I'd love to see a Recoil VTR...
I would like that as well. We need an EVO insert for truggy tires too. I hate the current closed cell truggy inserts. They never seem to fit in the tires properly and they're a bit stiff.

I agree, tread patterns and price. Maybe break the pattern and put out packs of 4 a little cheeper. Who buys only 2 tire any way? A four pack in a resealable bag would just be awsome in my opinion. Combos like bowfighters and stuff could even be done.

how about offering air filter replacements in pre-oiled 4 packs.
release all tires in vtr.
a contingency program like odonnell has would be cool also.
and number one would be....

Just like everybody else said more truggy tires please. Cheaper pricing would be nice too, I mean really $75.00 for a set of tires and you get 2 or 3 good races out of them and then there pretty much worthless.

Total rethink on your pricing, old Truggy wheel & tire cost killed this section in the UK. The new pricing will finish off any hopes of a recovery there & in buggy just push the proline faithfull to other brands. I am one of the lucky & privaleged few to be supported by proline here, the product does what it says on the bag & is a great product, but price will push your customers away.

$78 DOLLARS, My LHS is over 100 dollars, then add tax to that! Buggy tires come in around 88 dollars plus tax.

I paid $80 for 2 winter tires for my real car, mounted, and balanced, minus tax and they have about 200 times the amount of rubber, steel wire, fiberglass,etc.

Ohh to hit the lottery

It really is, even to us dealers from distribution.
Across the parts board, tires have the lowest markup.

Personally, I'd like to see a buggy or a truggy. lol

Just kidding. But I definitely agree with most other people on here about the insane pricing on the truggy tires. And I thought onroad was expensive tirewise, you know what I mean?
