Proline maybe? They have no writing on at all


Ok next ones are,





NOw in know the wheels are vintage (mid 80's) proline 100-F as used by Jay Halsey on his #6 RC10, and it looks like the tires could be the front version of whatever he used on the back?



Anyone know?

Thanks

The first set are old Proline Spikes. I had several sets of those that I use to run on my hornets and Frogs years ago.

Not sure about the second set. I wanna say I've seen those on old Kyosho's but i'm not sure if they where stock or not.

The first set of tires is 100% made by Pro-line. I have one that's NIB complete with specs. Product number 1002 "Side Bite DC-2" (rear) 1.5" wheel.

The second set is made by a company called A.J.'s . I installed a pair one of those on my vintage Tamiya Holiday Buggy. They are made of a softer compound rubber. Ideal for off road racing. 1.5-1.6" wheel
