Wow.... you're right.. nothing left for buggies.. Luckily they have the tires that work at our local tracks...

There still are lots of tires available from Losi and JConcepts though... Panther also has a bunch of newer tires for 1/10 scale trucks and buggies... to bad hardly anybody carries them locally. Which is odd because they are made locally here.. lol

Even better when sponsored Proline racers don't even use their tires!!!!
Kinda sucks as I always liked to run Proline tires but sine their selection is seemingly so limited I have switched to other brands.

Rumor has it that pro line is coming out with a tenth scale tire that resembles the losi bk bar and the jconcepts bar code.

I've transitioned over to using JConcepts Goosebumps.. the pins last a little longer than the old proline steps and when the pin is done, the have lots of life with the bars for higher bite clay tracks. They also have 4wd fronts too!

That's why I got away from Pro-Line when I ran Stock Truck, they kept pulling all of their great indoor race tires like the Evil Twin T and instead release garbage like golf cart bodies for monster trucks.

I ended up with Panther, they've got equivalents of every tread pattern Pro-Line and Team Losi make, and a few of their own designs that look promising. Rubber compound selection rocks too, instead of making you figure out the difference between an "XTR" or an "M2" or a "Pink", they just have hard, medium, soft, and an indoor-only Clay. Simple as that.

The only good PL tire for 10th is Holeshot (which I dont like that much but whatever) and Square Fuzzies, which they dont make anymore.

Evil Twins and Inside Jobs are ok, but I like the X-2000s and 3000s from Losi better.

They dont care about 10th scale.

my experience with holeshots is you won't have to wait too long with them to be done. Good tires performance wise, but they do slick out pretty quick. and don't get me started on the foams.

+1

they are good but will empty your wallet too quickly.

JC Double-d's is a fantastic substitute.

Nothing like watchin the pros take a dremel tool with a sanding spool on it, to a brand new set of tires to make slicks outta them! Until i watched them wheelie outta the corners using them? Love the Clay! Oh to be sponsored!
