This is a pair of Firestorm gold compound monster truck tires from JConcepts. Tires have always been one of the most noticeable things about a Monster Truck, and it's no different in radio control. When it's time to pick out the tires for your RC monster truck and you're wanting to have a solid scale appearance, look no further than the Firestorm tires from JConcepts.
66 x 43 x 25 is the standard issue size of monster truck tires before any extra buffing or trims have been applied to the tread. JConcepts sits at the top of the monster truck scene with years of knowledge and passion reserved only for the truest fans of monster trucks. The Firestorm tires pack the scale look and performance of 1:1 tires but with important tweaks for racing. Inspiration was drawn from the 1990's era of side-by-side racing where performance, weight, and appearance make all the difference.
The Firestorms roll with a scale height and width both competition and show trucks the ground clearance, stance, and forward traction necessary to talk the talk and walk the walk. The lowered flat bar design of the tread provides a stable lug capable of gripping an assortment of surfaces while the side-wall has enough strength to take on high-speed cornering. The tire lettering has an authentic, indicating many of the popular wordings, warnings, and details associated with large scale floatation tires. The retro style JConcepts logo pulls inspiration from a time when all-out performance was priority number 1.
The Firestorms measure in at 6.2 x 4.0 x 2.6 and are available in two different compounds. The soft blue compound is recommended for dirt, grass, and asphalt, feeling noticeably mushy and sticky and has expanding characteristics similar to off-road racing outdoor compounds. The gold compound feels harder to the touch and excels on carpet, AstroTurf, and polished concrete surfaces, expanding less during high-speeds. These tires have been designed with a single contour carcass and reduced sized beads for reduced overall weight. Firestorm tires are complete and include open cell React inserts to support the grippy tires.
