Coming from JConcepts are the new Octagons 1/10th buggy tyres for high-bite slick tyre racing. At the appropriate time, and when less tread is an advantage, vehicles can be tough to drive and this is where the Octagons kick in as JConcepts has removed a little surface area in the geometry based pattern. The carcass is new, slightly more round than JConcepts’ slick tyres of the past and it incorporates heavy X-pattern style inner ribbing for increased support. The continuous thickness carcass is light-weight and utilises the industry standard 2.2″ mounting bead. Like the name suggests, the embossed tread which is Octagon shaped is repeated and overlapped to form a subculture of grippy surface edges for dry or abrasive surfaces. The Octagons are available as 2WD front, 4WD front and general rear tyre in green, black and indoor clay, gold compounds to match just about any racing surface. Each package includes the Dirt-Tech inserts.
