Thanks in advance
Proline Holeshots rear ONLY. M3 or M4 compound. There is not a lot between the compounds to be honest.
#PL8206-02 - Pro-Line 'Holeshot 2.0' 2.2" M3
#PL8206-03 - Pro-Line 'Holeshot 2.0' 2.2" M4

On the front you can run the Proline 2wd Ribs:
#PL8175-02 - Proline 2.2 4-Rib Tyres M3
#PL8175-03 - Proline 2.2 4-Rib Tyres M4

Or any other Proline 2wd front tyre.

I've run the ribs (which are good), but preferred the Scrubs on both my Yokomo and B4.1 before that:
#PL8212-02 - Proline Scrubs 2.2" 2WD Off-Road Buggy Front Tyres M3

The tyres last well. I've got some of last years tyres (kept in sealed bags) to run on the practice day, and will glue a new set of rears up for in 2wd and a new full set for 4wd.

I'd say you'd want one set of fronts and two rears at a minimum for 2wd.

The dirt track is awesome!
