Nope Andy. I was referring to the Proline ones at the Nats. Your Bar Codes at least looks different from the BK Bar at a glance. The Proline ones are soo close in looks, that most people wouldnt even notice the differences unless they looked closely.

Here is the real question - who drew up the BK Bars at Losi? Sure wasn't BK himself.....

Ah, good one. Although I thought the concept was based on BK turning a set of tires inside out and gluing them back together. Hence, the BK Bar name.

By the way, if you have never seen BK glue up a set of "custom" tires, you are missing out. He made a set BK Bar truck tires and a set of 4wd front BK Bars as well. Truly awesome at how well he makes these tires. You can barely tell where the cut/glue lines are.

The difference is the little bar that is only outside the outer groove on the Losi. On the proline it extends to inside the triangles.

I hope they at least call them "Dirtinators" in honor of BK...

Wonder if they include better foam inserts. Ones that actually fit in the tire and don't break down so fast. You would think a company as large as Proline would stop throwing in those pos foams. I'm tired of cutting them down. I don't think I'll be buying anymore Prolines tires since I just bought my first pair off Jconcepts dd's. Wow I'm impressed. Similar to the Holeshots with better inserts that actually fit! Too bad Panther uses the same foams as Proline too.

The other difference is those triangles are offset on the BK Bars (from left to right), and on the Prolines, the points of the triangles are lined up. Also, the pins down the center of the tire are a little different in size and placement and overall, I think the Prolines overall tread height is a tad lower.
