JConcepts Tusk 1.0” Tires & Pre-Mounts

From JConcepts:
JConcepts continues to muscle new scale off-road items into the market with the introduction of the Tusk 1.0” tire in the 57mm outside diameter variation. After successful tires such as the Landmines, the team focused on a new design with information learned by driving, crawling, and important input from a heap of development time by the JConcepts team. The team used a 57mm | 2.25” outside diameter sizing making it a very high-performance and scale-based tire, but the tread layout went under the scope for changes.

The Tusk has an animal-like instinct while it makes its way over terrain with hefty lugs and sidewall support. The center of the tire starts with a V-shaped lug with multiple steps to the sides for additional grip while the super soft green compound rubber flexes and contours to the landscape. The design team added large, staggered traction bars off the side continuing the V-shape pattern and while the shorter version steps in conjunction with the center lug, the longer version fills a void underneath and meets up near the center line of the tire.

The Mirrored aspect to the tire lays out beautifully and alternating rows provide a staggered height affect. JConcepts has added sidewall lugging for pinch grip and gap crawling and relieved a small portion of rubber for increased flexibility. All traction bars and lugging have relieved cuts and slots on the top to split up the flat surfaces for additional little edges for light dirt, dust, and debris. The sidewall lettering is highly detailed on the Tusk with naming, sizing, and identification.

The major flexibility of the super soft green compound combined with the lug arrangement gives the tire a grippy feel but still maintains that all important scale and performance look. The overall height provides plenty of ground clearance for an abundance of terrain and bossed side-wall logos read with beauty and balance. The tire size is compatible with and fits the TRX-4M scale truck and works and clears hard body shells like stock tire size combinations. The tires include a soft open cell foam insert capable of standing up to the compound but flexible enough for sharp terrain.
