JConcepts provides today’s front traction into yesteryears vehicle.

JCO3086The Rips, one of the more reliable tires for 1/10th buggy off-road, is now available in a classic form for vintage size wheels. The RC10 Classic has owners asking for a higher traction alternative to the kit tires giving the 1984 vintage buggy more steering increasing the fun-factor. The Rips fit a classic style 1.9” sized wheel giving the buggy an era correct appearance in size and proportion. The high-traction tires are produced in JConcepts sticky green (Super Soft) compound and include And-1 open cell inserts for increased support. The Rips are modeled after the original kit front tires with a slightly rounded side-wall that progressively angles toward the top. The rounded edges of the Rips peak out and return to the base exposing the deep Ripped ribs which tile out as an evenly spaced 5-rib tire. The smooth and grippy feeling of the front tire is immediately felt on rough terrain and more specifically low grip, loose and wet conditions. The vintage inspired tire lettering, along with finely detailed, crisp, JConcepts ribs finish off an all out effort for vintage racing.

Features:
· Available in sticky, Super Soft Green compound
· Era correct sizing and 1.9” bead mounting size
· Slightly round, progressively angled Rip style ribs

These tires don’t work with the RC10 original wheels. The tires are a little to big for the wheels.

We checked them on a set of original wheels we have. Our new tires out of the package do not fit as you mentioned. Our tire is the same size but there are a couple of factors that prevent it from mounting to the original wheel. The main item is the stock insert. Since they are slightly larger than the tire, they tend to stretch the tire, making it harder to lock into the bead. The tire being much softer is also a factor. We found that if you do trim the insert they will fit much better but still will not lock into the bead. Your only option there would be to glue them.
