JConcepts 2.2″ Stadium Truck Sprinter

The Sprinter tire from JConcepts is now available in a 2.2″ Stadium truck variant. Featuring square, angled pins that are stacked vertically to flex and fold evenly across the tire the company started with a new tread and focused on durability and performance to bring a rear tire option to market that competes on loose surfaces which are wet or dusty. The outer sidewall of the tire has angled pins incorporated into the design to help release the turn and provide the rotation not only needed in dirt off-road but specifically in dirt-oval racing. The blended tread to tire body is supported with a generous radius which promotes “pin snap” and resists tearing or separation. Horizontal traction bars connect several pins near the centre of the tire which bonds a critical area for increased push at high-speed. The sidewall area blends nicely into a step-spike feature which helps smooth the transition in bumpy sections and create side-bite.
