This is a set of two JConcepts Carvers Front Short Course Tires. JConcepts is assisting in making Short Course Trucks easier to drive. The only option for tuning front tires on 2wd SCT trucks has been to use a rear tire, but as the Short Course class has developed and became a true racing class, it is clear that a ribbed tire is something that could be an asset to your bag of tricks. JConcepts is the first to introduce a directional ribbed front tire to Short Course Racing, the Carvers.

The advantage of the Carvers tire is the ability to tune steering response by utilizing a radial rib to present the tire compounds to the racing surface. Typically, ribbed tires net a less aggressive and more predictable front end response which can ultimately deliver faster and more consistent races. With the 2.2” x 3.0” design, the large sidewall retains the realism of the class while providing an additional tuning option.

The Carvers front tire is perfect for a variety of track surfaces. The sharp angular and directional ribs provide the ultimate in control and direction on the most common dry and wet condition surfaces. The compact tire body combined with the JConcepts firm profiled inserts allow for precise steering input and response for the most consistent laps times available.

Carvers in new condition excel on low traction surfaces as well as high “loamy” traction and wet surfaces where no rubber has been taken into the racing surface. Worn Carvers excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks where a light blue groove has formed.


  • Compact tire body
  • Sharp angular and directional ribs with precise separation
  • Includes firm profiled “closed cell” inserts

These tires are money on a loose/loamy track. I was not buying these tires because they are not legal in ROAR events but the last of the bigger local races I raced in, both the guys that beat me were both using these tires. So I just had to get some and try them out. With tires on a loose track, I was able to put a lot more weight on the rear to get the forward bite but I still had plenty of steering now with these tires. I just hope eventually ROAR will make these types of tires legal in 2WD SC.

Great tires. I highly recommend them when caring about performance over scale looks.
