Default Proline M2, M3, M4 refers to WHICH COLOR DOT?

Ive never heard proline refering to color dots associated to compound. On Amain and proline site, there is no mention of color dots anywhere. All I know them by is M2, M3, M4... Buying a lot of tires and the guy is calling them by Blue, Green, Yellow... someone please enlighten me...

THANKS

Blue is M4 (Ultra soft)
Green is M3 (Soft)
Yellow is M2 (Medium)

Another coupound is the XTR (firmer than M2) but I dont know the color dot code used by PL Racing.

kgombe is the fastest guy !!!

Yellow is M2, which is the equivalent of medium
Green would be M3, Which is soft
M4's are blue, which is super soft

Fun fact ():Also, there is xtr compound, which is red. It is great for abrasive tracks, and is a "firm" tire.
Here is the chart: http://prolineracing.com/images/howt...poundChart.pdf
Sorry guys above, didn't see your posts; just responded

XTR- Red

All were covered except the clay compound so I figured I would throw it in
