JConcepts is re-imagining a vintage tire line-up from 1991 and adapting them to a 1.7" rear 2wd wheel. The Taper Spike, built on a bubbled carcass to fit the Hazard #3359 and Mono #3437 rear wheels are designed for today's compounds and with optimized pin spacing and placement built to work in dirty and loamy conditions.
Taper Spikes on the rear of a 2wd buggy appear very rugged and capable of gripping anything in wet surface conditions. When dirt sticks to the tires, these style tires dig hard with their tapered spike construction providing a rubber pin to bury into deep rooted conditions. The bottom of the pin angles extremely aggressively, a hard taper into the cone type pin which will naturally bend and flex with surface terrain. The Taper Spike in the Green compound feels very pliable to the touch, adjusts to variation and with green compound presents itself to surfaces in a unique way.
The pins terminate very close to the end of the sidewall and slightly overhang so drivability is easier in 180-degree corners. A very small rib is placed on the sidewall to help control flexibility and provides a finishing touch to the appearance of the classic front tire combination.
