Default Losi red kingpin truggy tires

I bought some losi kingpin truggy tires in red compound. What is this compound comparable to in proline? What conditions are these tires good for?

Default hmm

Back in the day when everyone raced 2wd buggy the red tires were soft tires and a dang fine compound. they are close to the m2 compound or medium of aka....I don't know much about that tread, but in my opinion the red compound is one of the best ever made......

red is like a mix of med and soft. You use red compound in dry conditions. green is for wet conditions.

Anyone know about proline wheels? I think that might be all our LHS carries.

If your local LHS has the older Proline LPR Truggy wheels, you'll be able to mount the Losi Kingpins you have. They won't mount up to the VTR wheels.
