I wonder how many of you guys remember ICQ?
ICQ => I Seek You. Yep, I remember it. Don't think I ever used that one. I was always on AIM and IRC.

I used ICQ before AIM gained popularity and turned ICQ into a ghost town.

Now, 25 years later, we use "Skype For Business" at work, which is, essentially, ICQ.

Just use closed cell foam inserts that leave a slight air gap - should minimize side-hilling issues, but allow tire tread to conform to terrain better.

I know, dang ol ginormous tars are too big and waaaaay outta scale, only have one set of them because of this. I just bought their 1946 Dodge Power Wagon and especially the rear wheel wells are freakin huge, looks terrible but cab is not quite as bad.

Viva la mid-sized tires!

Agreed, but Pro-Line should include these good foams.

Nice tires. I'll get a set eventually. And I know it's a broken record but "Proline make some 1.55 tires already"

I remember and used ICQ quite a lot in the early days, then Microsoft's messenger muscled in and i moved over to MIRC and got my geek on

Been ages since i have used my ICQ or messenger, or mirc for that matter, that kind of died out as i stopped competitive gaming due to lack of good games to play.

I keep wanting to buy these tires and then I remind myself that they should have released them in Predator compound. That is most likely coming at some point and I hope it's sooner rather than later.

Yup, should have been made in the predator compound.

Would be nice to see some more pics of the tire mounted on different trucks.
