Default Whats happened to pro-line tires??

Any one know why proline has stoped selling some of there tires? It looks like on there site they are only offering Holeshots, inside jobs, dirt hogs, and bowties.

I'm no expert, but... the economy, slow sales, etc... a sign of the times.

I think he meant 10th scale:

I recently heard a 10th 4WD guy complain about a lack of tire choices. That's what I thought the thread was referring to.

Default proline tire selection

yea they have had to downsize their team as well as the amount of tires they offer. i hope they wither make some new tread or bring back the older stuff.

If AKA gets into 1/10 scale, there will be no more proline!

For the last 3 seasons or so of my Stock Truck career I got fed up with Pro-Line discontinuing some of their best indoor truck tires (the Evil Twin T, Square Fuzzy T, and the Blade fronts) while at the same time releasing BS like golf cart bodies and spinner wheels for Maxxes, so I flipped to Panther Tires. They've got treads that one-off just about everything Pro-Line and Team Losi made, and a couple of their own designs that look pretty promising.

Bryan I am sure I have a set of inside jobs in my bag. I think they are r3 compound though.

as for proline. I usually run jconcepts now. Some losi though (tapers).
