Default Pro-line Tires

I searched for a Pro-line tire thread and didn't find one for just a Pro-line talk, so hear it is.

Anyway, has Pro-line decided to stop putting the "zip lock" part on their tire bags? I have ordered several pair of new tires (all 1/10, but rear, 2wd front and 4wd front) and all of the bags no longer have the zip lock part. I like keeping them sealed up with not in use, but now have to put the bags into a zip lock bag. Anyone notice this and or have any answers?

Thanks

I have noticed that it seems to be hit and miss.

I think I even got rid of a lot of the bags.. most times I am
so exited when I get them I rip them open not even paying attention.

I picked up some trenchers last month, and they didn't have the zip lock. I don't think the bags at my lhs had them either.

Why donít you just stop buying proline? Seems like an easy solution to me.

I just take the tires out of their zip bags and put my sandwich in them. I hate it when my sandwich gets crusty.

I wonder how rubber survives in the rainforest without a ziploc baggy.

Most my tires get spent rather quickly enough that drying out isn't a problem.. Carrying all of them can be..

JC was doing the same thing last year if you ordered directly from them. I put all mine in gallon size bags.

When I was a teen, I found out it doesn't last long while in a wallet in my back pocket.

If the rubber came first, wouldn't it be tough to make a tree? Unless there was a hole

Whoops there goes another rubber tree, whoops there goes........

But if I can get serious for a moment. If a rubber tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to........Aw, the heck with it
