JConcepts 2.2” Rangers MT tyres & Midwest wheels

Coming from JConcepts are the new 2.2” Rangers MT scale trees and Midwest 2.2” MT 12mm hex wheels. Starting with the tyres, the 2.2” Rangers resemble the iconic 48” tyres that started the monster truck craze back in the 1970’s. The 1/10th scale variant makes use of the popular 2.2” wheel dimensions and it features the popular the Zig-zag tread, scale depth and side-wall lettering. The included open cell React inserts fill the void inside and help stabilize the large contact patch of the famous looking tyres. The low-profile stance stays very flat during race course competition, speed-runs or general use. The tyre carcass profile holds the weight extremely low while the design of the tyre beads allow just the right amount of contact patch for gluing and application. The Rangers tyre is available in the soft “blue” compound which is recommended for dirt, grass and asphalt while “gold” compound feels harder to the touch and excels on carpet, AstroTurf and polished concrete surfaces and expands less during high-speeds.

Also new and made to fit the above Rangers tyres are the Midwest 2.2” wheels. A detailed replica of one the greatest monster wheels from the early to mid 1980’s, it is a one-piece, light-weight option which is packed with versatility and durability. The Midwest wheel includes three off-set wheel adaptors: 11mm width for a stock Clod Buster or retro type Monster Truck width, 18mm for increased stability on vehicles such as the Stampede, Stampede 4×4, Rustler, Slash 4×4 and 25mm for the ultimate in footing for long wheelbase racing monster trucks. Also included is a pair of steel, serrated, 4mm thin pattern lock-nuts for greater security. The Midwest wheels are available in white, black and silver colors to match any color scheme or realistic build.
