JConcepts 4wd Space Bars front tyre


JConcepts have introduced the Space Bars front tyre for 4wd buggies. The 2.2” tyre is designed for the popular indoor track conditions where the surface is mostly built of clay soil. The tread, originally based on the Dirt Webs tyre design connects uniformly positioned Space Bars to create an amazingly stable tyre. The fresh tyre design relies heavily on a larger format of the original Web pattern for massive forward acceleration. Inside the supported bar portion rests long horizontal and short vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Space Bar feature to help minimize wear. Designed to break-in quickly for competition but not wear out before that all important peak performance.
