JConcepts Knobs And Launch Monster Truck Tires

When spirited competition in the full-size monster truck game was at its pinnacle, cutting tires, modifying tread and carcass carving was an art form. It was not unusual for a team to put in an extreme amount of effort to cut up, dig and arrange a tread pattern, all in the interest of going faster on the racetrack. This led the team at JConcepts decided to produce the Knobs and Launch MT tires.

JConcepts Knobs And Launch Monster Truck Tires

KNOBS — MONSTER TRUCK TIRE

The Knobs, simply named for their appearance of the irregular diamond shaped knobs which have step and overlapping features built in. JConcepts believes tire options in the class should replicate those used in major series events in the 1:1 world and the Knobs certainly do. The arrangement, pattern, and instances were a result of carving from an existing 1:1 tire and the results were fantastic. The Knobs excel in dirt or asphalt conditions where massive edging of the pins helps forward drive and side-bite.

JConcepts Knobs And Launch Monster Truck TiresReplicated cuts helped turn the carcass into a low-profile tire giving it a racing stance like other successful JConcepts tires such as the Renegade. The tire includes “React” open cell inserts which support the upper carcass and sidewall under loaded conditions. The tire carcass profile is light-weight and extremely low-profile giving the design of the tire just the right amount of contact patch for racing. Eyed by the experts as an excellent dirt tire, the Knobs may be used front or rear or paired with the Launch for ultimate tune-ability. The Knobs measure in at 5.80 x 4.0 x 2.6” and are available in two different compounds.

The soft “blue” compound, which is recommended for dirt, grass, and asphalt, feels noticeably mushy and sticky and has expanding characteristics like off-road racings outdoor compounds. The “gold” compound feels harder to the touch and excels on carpet, AstroTurf, and polished concrete surfaces and expands less during high speeds. The JConcepts tire has retro logo, tire name, sizing and tire part number identification bossed into the tire making it even more authentic.

FEATURES:

  • Low-profile sizing and design inspiration
  • Fits the popular #3377 2.6″ Tribute MT wheel (available in black, white, silver, and yellow)
  • Irregular diamond Knobs for crisp bite
  • Single contour carcass with light-weight beads
  • Authentic tire lettering with retro JConcepts logo
  • Available in soft “blue” and “medium” gold compounds
  • Includes “React” open cell inserts
  • Monster style and performance

 

 

LAUNCH — MONSTER TRUCK TIRE

The Launch, given the name for its very forward bite influenced design is one of the most detailed JConcepts tire ever created. JConcepts believes tire options in the class should replicate those used in major series events in the 1:1 world and the Launch certainly do. The arrangement, pattern, and instances were a result of carving from an existing 1:1 tire and the results were fantastic. The closely spaced tread elements were excavated away leaving an alternating upper lip. The lip has micro cuts and channels left over from the original pattern giving plenty of clean-out with the tread itself and in between in the valley areas.

The Launch tires excel in dirt or asphalt conditions where spaced edging of the pins helps forward drive. Staggered ribs near the top of the sidewall add some “burnout” territory for doing donuts and hard sliding while the notched or staggered pattern helps provide some support for hard turns.
