JConcepts goes big with ‘Dirt Webs’ tread


60 Dirt Webs

JConcepts has launched their all-new 60mm Dirt Webs today for the 2wd front, 4wd front, and 2wd/4wd rear wheels. The new 60mm Dirt Webs are set to be available in the full range of JC compounds including Blue, Green, Black, Gold, Silver, and Red. 

During 2012, legendary tire builder, Brian Kinwald, came up with a hand-made tire design. After testing at indoor and outdoor tracks around the country, qualifying results during the 2012 Hot Rod Shootout and working together with JConcepts designer Jason Ruona, the Dirt Webs tire was born. During the early stages of 2014, the team experimented with a larger 60mm | 2.4” bead mounting diameter at events such as the Cactus Classic and Surf City Classic. In the hands of Spencer Rivkin, the 60mm tire and wheel combination displayed advantageous performance in high-grip conditions. The taller bead combined with the included 60mm Dirt-Tech inserts provide a steady base for high-performance.

The tread, originally based on the popular Pressure Points tire design connects uniformly positioned Web-Bars to create an amazingly stable tire. The Dirt Webs, the ultimate Bar-Tire, relies heavily on the Web-treatment for massive forward acceleration; however, the design does not stop there. Inside the supported bar portion rests horizontal and vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Web-Bars to help minimize wear. Down in the corners, small Pressure Point sized pins break-in quickly providing surface area for specialty indoor racing and also lend a helping hand to stabilize the tire in extreme high-grip conditions.

The outer edges feature a single rib on each side which proves extra side-bite during heavy cornering and side-loading characteristics. The Dirt Web tread sits on a new tire body carcass giving the tire a low-profile, wide-body appearance allowing clipped tread to extend all the way to the outer edges. The carefully shaped profile allows a great balance of monster forward traction and comfortable side-bite. Available in multiple compounds, the Dirt Webs can easily be matched to any track conditions ranging from indoor clay, indoor dirt to outdoor hard-packed or treated clay or dirt.
