I guess Panther Bobcats too. They make both a 4WD and 2WD front. But some guys do cut and paste, I think when the right one isn't available, but maybe to further experiment with width too.

Somewhat similar to Losi Taper Pins. The fast guys at our hard packed track say the Bobcat Clays are a little less aggressive than the Losi pink Taper Pins (2wd all), but as always with tires and tracks your mileage may vary.

my bad, I now am guessing losi taper pins too. The bobcats have an equal length and even center cross rib, the taper pins do not. My excuse is I thought the taper pins had a more prominent outer rib, I don't see that, could they be ground off of the tires in the picture?

Noticed something else looking at a couple of pairs of taper pins. One set I have has the center cross rib alternating left to right some, the other set has the length alternating from long to short. Like the 2 sides of the mold were positioned differently.

Edit: The taper pins are also available in 2wd and 4wd versions.

Im going to guess they are silver compound as well seeing the BK Bars (in red no doubt) out back. The typical setup really for those tires.

I'm gonna go a step further and say those are 4wd front tapers with one one row of lugs cut out to fit 2wd wheels.. They dont have the taller rib on the outside like 2wd front tapers do. They are also lower profile and more consistent.
