JConcepts takes ‘Dirt Webs’ 1/8 scale


JC Tire

JConcepts has just released the popular ‘Dirt Webs’ tread for 1/8 buggy! The tread, originally based on the popular Pressure Points tire design connects uniformly positioned Web-Bars to create an amazingly stable tire. During 2014, the design was converted to use on a 1/8th buggy carcass and debuted during the 1/8th E-buggy ROAR Nationals in Houston, Texas. 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 provides extra side-bite during heavy cornering and side-loading characteristics. The Dirt Web tread sits on the proven JConcepts 1/8th tire 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.
