Subcultures "EB" 1/8th Truggy Tires (2) (Yellow) by JConcepts w/Elevated Bead
This product was added to our catalog on June 9, 2011.
This is a set of two JConcepts Subcultures "Elevated Bead" 1/8th Truggy Tires. Subcultures, the popular three tier design from JConcepts, are the latest in 1/8th truck tire development. The JConcepts design team started from the ground-up with an all new tire design. Leaving no detail untouched, the elevated (angular) bead configuration provide elements that combine light-weight with performance. In general, 1/8th truck tires are heavy and minimizing rubber and insert material was the focus. Utilizing the tire sidewall as the mounting bead, the Elevated design eliminated the need for excess rubber and insert material, dropping weight, while simplifying the mounting / gluing contact patch and location. One continuous tire body profile with Subcultures tread, together with the light-weight Force-1 insert has revolutionized 1/8th truck tires once again.
Itís a whole new world down within the tread as the Subcultures are the first 1/8th truck tire with three-tier lug technology. The precisely spaced pyramid shaped tread provides the initial feel and control for hard packed, loose and loamy conditions while the step base give the necessary height for wet and soft conditions. At the very base of the Subcultures is a mesh of tread which provides grip at a time when most tires are left bald. Now available in sticky super soft green compound, the Subcultures are a specialty tire that when matched to the appropriate track can provide the performance and all around tire that racers dream of.
The Subcultures are a part of the JConcepts special breed of tire, designed for maximum performance when new or used as the design allows even wear all the way down to the tire body. Subcultures, in green compound, while in new condition excel on hard slick surfaces that are either dry, wet or when traction is hard to come-by. Worn Subcultures on the second or third tier of lugs, excel on surfaces where a groove has formed with minimal dust buildup.
