Default ProCircuit Tires USA by New Generation Dist.

A little bit of news. Pro Circuit Tires are coming to the USA.

These tires have been doing real well in many Euro races, and now it looks like they are coming here, thanks to Russ Kinsey at New Generation Distribution.

There has been some testing done, and they seemed to have done very well. if you haven't checked them out, here are a couple links showing the tread designs, and some testing information.

I know Russ has done some personal testing with these tires, and I am sure he will chime in, with what he has found.

Thanks Russ, for another great tire option.

From what I understand, Truggy tires may be coming soon. A question Russ would be better to answer.

I was fortunate enough to be able to run a set of the Sweet Shots and Square Impacts at Rd 2 of the Texas State Series in Corpus Christi, Tx a few weeks ago. Traction and treadwear were awesome. After 10 minutes with the Xtreme Soft compound there was very very little visible wear. The tires felt much more predictable than my AKA's and seem to last longer. I also did not notice tire fade like I have with my AKA's.

Coming from motocross all I think when I hear "Pro-circuit" I think of Mitch Payton's company which makes motocross exaust and engine parts, also a race team Prociruit monster kawasaki. Here is the team I am speaking of.

His team has great success maybe this simular named company will to.

We are very proud to bring this fantastic product to the US and Canada!
We starting looking at these several months ago, ordered 15 sets all super soft and extreme compond (which is softer). We had several test sessions with different level drivers to get a wide varity of feedback.
All the feedback was very positive!! Excellent wear, preditiablity and traction.

As for truggy tires, they are in devolopement right now and should be out these summer, as soon as I know everyone will know.

We will be at the Off road Fuel Nationals in June, please feel free to stop by and check them out.

Thanks!

guys I was 1 of the test drivers for these tires. And if you know me I am not really a buggy driver. BUT I tried them all...OUTSTANDING and stated earlier very predictable and great on wear. Also decided to do some cross matching on treads and I ran the sweet shot and marathon combo like a bow fighter and they hooked up better in my opinion. very very little wear on my tires so they are worth looking into and tring a set out. I myself can't wait for the truggy tires to come out.
