Just tried the Pro 53 rims for the first time this past weekend. All I have to say is "Fantastic!" The car was a absolute dream to drive with frightening cornering speed and minimal tire wear.

The fronts are 1.87 and the rears and 2.09.

Do you think they should be made smaller out of the package?

As long as we can one pass them Paul...haha.

This is what i have figured based on trying the pro 53's, regular Parma's, and wraps. (All of this is with 19 turn)

I could run the same fastest lap with all 3 tires, but was least consistent with the regular sized Parmas (cut at 55mm) I ran the others at 57mm as that seems to be the somewhat ideal size. My car feels best with either pro 53 or the jaco wraps (i think this is mostly due to the rim stiffness since i spaced them out wider to compare with Parmas older rim), however overall it seems better with the narrower stance.

On a new set of jacos i can get 4 runs before they are shot, with the pro 53 i had left from the Fastcats race, i got around 5 more runs before they were junk, on top of the 3 i ran them there (8 run total). I would say that the first 2 runs for jaco were ideal, and the first 3 or 4 for the 53's were ideal. I was getting 2 to 3 good runs on my regular parma's.

My conclusion is that the 53's last longer and feel just as good as the wraps do, and they surpass the wraps (in longevity).

The biggest down side is that they should so be chrome and called dubs...LMAO

I was only able to run one a couple heats with a set (magenta's all the way around) b/c I was comparing to the 26mm Jaco wraps, and I can say I was just as fast with the dubbs as with the wraps. I did have to not let the Paragon soak as much, as I felt the 53's actually had more grip - this might be due to the 28mm width compared to the 26m wraps I was comparing

It is almost crazy how big the rims are! I will be playing with longevity here this week. I am curious to see how many good runs you can get on them. I had cut mine down to 58mm just to play with in club racing.

I can say I think these are the real deal!!!

With the big rims, you do have to raise your roll center, I found, which makes complete sense. Bigger tire at same ride height = much lower roll center. I tried them with the same roll centers I had with small rims and the car was a bit too planted. This was, though, with them cut to ~59.5 mm (had about the same amount of foam as a 57 mm small rim does). By the time the tires got to 57.5 mm at the end of the night, the car became more free every run and was extremely fast.

the dubs have more sidebite (grip) than anything else out there, which in addition to the geometry that brian noted, will make the car roll more. i am certain that we will see some setup changes for the new wheels. (unless your car sucked to begin with )

so far so good, though. if vegas is like last year, there won't be anything better than these.

Couldn't agree with you more there Mr. Cockswell.

The Pro 53s definitely have a ton more side bite than what I am used to. The main setup changes have been everything to free the car up. I haven't run the standard rim stuff that much lately as all testing has been done lately with the Pro 53s.

Just like Haynes said, longevity is there and they are a heck of a lot less likely to "peel". Pro 53s are good stuff. Great alternative to a 2 stage tire with the handling characteristics of a 2 stage tire.

I think you should make the package bigger and raise the price.

Most guys will pay top dollar for a bigger package.
