pro-line diamond back tires
Pro-Line is always striving forward looking to give you an advantage out on the track. Their latest 8th scale buggy tires are further proof of this and they are called Diamond Backs. Just like the name implies, the Diamond Backs emulate the scales on a snakes back, the lugs in the center of the tire are closer together, while the lugs near the sidewalls are further apart. Placing the lugs in this manner helps to provide longer tread life while having lots of traction. As far as tire compounds go, the Diamond Back are currently being produced in Pro-Line’s exclusive long lasting X2 (medium- #9049-002) and X3 (soft- #9049-003) compounds.

Expect a street price of $22 per pair, and you can get more information on these and all of Pro-Line’s superior products on their Official Website.

We work all week waiting for the weekend, why not check out a TGIF Mystery Link?

X Compound Pro-Line Blockade
Pro-line Blockade tires aren’t new, in fact they are one of the most winning tires of the last couple of years. However, it is big news that they are now available in Pro-line’s new X Compound. Why would you, Mr Basher, care that you can get them in X Compound? Because the new X Compound is all about long tire life, it’s a compound made especially for abrasive surfaces. Basically, if you are looking for outstanding traction on a prepped dirt surface, and are looking for outstanding wear characteristics, Blockades in X Compound should be the tire of choice.

Blockades are available in X2 Compound (Medium #9039-002) and X3 Compound (Soft #9039-003), with a street price of right around $22 a pair. For more information, hit up the official Pro-Line Website.
