The Swagger SCT front tire has a multitude of heights and angular ribs for cornering 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 industry standard SCT wheels which are already available from JConcepts with part numbers 3344 (AE) and 3352 (TLR). The Swaggers work best on Carpet and Astroturf tracks where the racing line requires an aggressive style front tire.

The ultra low-profile carcass keeps a truck 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. The Swagger front tire includes open cell inserts for the best performance in a variety of conditions.

Features:

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

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 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 tires are designed for the industry standard SCT wheels, available from JConcepts with part numbers 3344 (AE) and 3352 (TLR).

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, Kyle Layton 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.

Features:

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