    I got mine installed but haven't ran my XM yet. What's the verdict so far? Is it easier to control when doing WOT speed runs since they don't balloon?

    WOT? Not sure what that means.

    They handle a lot better overall. Less wheelies. Better acceleration. More traction. They do still balloon, or at least change shape at high speed, but you've got to be going faster and it's more controllable.

    I ran FourDubs maxx today for a few
    the proline tires have comparable grip to the stock
    not much difference on traction,maybe a bit less traction then stock
    but I could tell they where heavier,hard compound
    overall they seem like a very durable tire/wheel setup
    Hostile MXT is still my top choice for tires

    I think I agree that they have slightly less traction on most surfaces, except grass. The prolines own grass and I'm a little worried about some ruts I put into the park on accident. However, my truck feels way more stable and responsive overall. Stock tires are so soft the truck is always rolling over on them and stuff. And even if I get a bit less traction on dirt, it's easier to drive overall. Might be driver skill, but I can drive a lot faster on dirt with the prolines. Stock tires it gets squirrely and wheelies way to much. With the prolines, as long as I'm rolling 5-10mph, it's really easy to just nail the throttle and see it take off.

    The only thing I'm worried about with them is the weight. Truck was already really heavy and with all four tires, it's at least a couple pounds heavier. It might be unavoidable, but so much of the weight of the truck is in the wheels. It's nuts.

    If I spent $200 on mounted ones with no discount code, I'm not sure how I'd feel, but since I assembled them myself and had a code, I got them for $130. I'm very happy with them at that price. Pretty sure they'll be my main tire. I'm going to keep the stock for spares or to run in the rain. I don't want to get the prolines wet at all.

    Anyone know how durable these are compared to stock tires when you hit loose (small) twigs and branches in grass fields at high speed?

    The proline tires feel much harder of a compound
    with a firm foam -
    much more durable than the soft stock rubber
    Heavier with slightly less traction

    My prolines will be in tomorrow. I'm thinking its going to settle my max6 v1 down a little cause when I swap the v2 tires on, its a completely different beast. Hopefully its going to be ok

    Well, after about 15 runs on the Xmaxx I finally blew out a stock tire. Blew out right in the center of the tire. In all fairness, I think I had a bit of water inside the tire which might have aided in the blowout. I think I'm going to order up the premounted badlands tires and wheels. Good to hear the seem to be performing nicely with less ballooning at high speeds. Do you guys think the fact that there is less cushion than the stocks might affect the landings of high jumps? More strain on the shocks and truck itself?

    Wish they had ring color options! They gray just doesn't look good. Now I will unmount them and try to dye them Black!

    theres a few guys who have painted theirs with nice results.

    I've used mine a few times, I don't noticed a lot of wear to the rings themselves.



    I like the colors for the most part.

    Nice BigBird! Like the silver and black body too! I'm pulling rings off this weekend to dye them black and think I'm going to get that body and black it out

    Mounted these up last night and boy do they kill the acceleration! They are so heavy compared to stock. I was running 18/54 6s and it was a wheelie machine. It is now quite sluggish. I plan to gear down and see if that helps, but i will miss the jump of the lighter stock setup. The positive side is that they look great and the grip is improved.

    I tried 13/54 on 8s with the prolines and it wasn't any fun. Wheelie from a standstill, but none at all if you're rolling. I've settled on stock. 18/54 and 8s. It still wheelies less than the stock tires, but I really don't have a problem with that. You have the best acceleration and control with 4 tires on the ground.

    I think it's probably safe to say that these tires are made with the 8s version in mind. Also, not necessarily for bashing. They're for people that want their truck to drive straight and be more responsive.

    How much for Proline tires/wheels with discount codes? I'm assuming Tower will be the cheapest.?

    And put a Max 6 in it.
    You can see in the video when he jumped it, the battery was hanging out near the left rear wheel and got pinched on the landing. He forgot to close the battery latch and the battery came out on the jump.

    I was just guessing, he didn't have the video posted up until quite a while after I posted this.

    Anyway, yeah that sucked for him.
