JConcepts re-invents the pin style tire with the release of the Pin Downs. The Pin Downs feature a pin spiked tread, which is directional for added performance and stability. The directional nature of the pins were positioned to allow broken-in type pins to grip the surface in one direction, while the pins are more upright when oriented in the opposite direction. The tire carcass is marked with a special texture which helps the driver with orientation during mounting. The bottoms of the pins have heavy radiuses which allow the pins to wear more consistently and not tear or rip off the carcass prematurely.

The tire carcass itself has been refined to reduce weight while maintaining strong sidewall support. The pink compound marked with 2 pink dots on the tire represents a new compound for JConcepts, a medium soft material with good wear characteristics. The rear tires include gray, open cell inserts making them a complete set ready to mount, straight out of the package. The Pin Downs work best on Carpet and Astroturf tracks where typically a small pin tire is working.

JConcepts performed an extensive amount of testing with the new tires with key drivers. Jason Ruona, Spencer Rivkin, Kody Numedahl, JR Mitch, Joona Haatanen, Alex Kosciuszek and Malin Karlsen all gave the new tires tests for speed, durability and consistency and the new tires passed with flying colors. The hottest new off-road Carpet and Astroturf tires are now available to the public for the first time.

  • Includes gray, open cell inserts

The Swagger 2wd front tire has a multitude of heights and angular ribs for corning speed, consistency and straight-line tracking ability. The Swagger has shown to produce ultra fast lap times while also being easier to drive than other options on the market. The front tires are designed for the narrow “slim” style front wheels which are already available from JConcepts with part numbers 3376W or 3376Y.

The ultra low-profile carcass keeps a 2wd buggy very predictable and consistent in high-grip conditions while pointing the vehicle in the correct direction. JConcepts has added side-wall ribs in a circular pattern to the exterior of the tire to support high-grip racing. The pink compound marked with 2 pink dots on the tire represents a new compound for JConcepts, a medium soft material with good wear characteristics. Since the Swagger tire is so small in diameter, no insert is necessary for championship level performance.

Features:

  • JConcepts fit, finish and design
  • Offset, multiple height, angular ribs
  • Low-profile carcass for increased response
  • Carefully shaped carcass for rolling speed

Note:

It is popular in Carpet and Astroturf racing to trim the tire pins to reduce the amount of grip 4wd front tires produce. Drivers typically start by trimming the outer most pins and work their way toward the center of the tire until the car has the proper balance for the conditions. Tuning with precision is the key to success and it’s easy to dial in with the Pin Downs.

Features:

  • JConcepts fit, finish and design
  • Multi-position, directional sharp pins
  • Hefty pin to carcass radius for increased response
  • Textured tire carcass indicates direction
  • Carefully shaped profiled carcass for rolling speed
  • Includes narrow, gray, open cell inserts

Pin Downs – pink compound, medium soft
Part # – 3138-010

The Lockness tire is designed with a larger pin used more in Astroturf or grass track applications. The larger pin of the Lockness grips into deeper surfaces and produces long life with the 3D blended design of the pins and center semi-circle protrusions. Designed in the industry standard 2.2” bead mounting size, the Lockness is very versatile and has shown to work in many natural and artificial conditions.

The spread out nature of the pin design allows incredible forward traction and the low-profile construction allows the driver to push hard at all times. The pink compound marked with 2 pink dots on the tire represents a new compound for JConcepts, a medium soft material with good wear characteristics. The rear tires include gray, open cell inserts making them a complete set ready to mount, straight out of the package.

Features:

  • JConcepts fit, finish and design
  • 3D blended, sharp pins
  • Semi-circle protrusions for side-bite
  • Pin to carcass radius for increased response
  • Carefully shaped profiled carcass for rolling speed
  • Includes narrow, gray, open cell inserts
