JConcepts Landmines 1.9 Performance Scale Tires

Normally you’d want to avoid land mines, but in the case of the new JConcepts 1.9 Landmines, you’ll probably want to get some. JConcepts states the Landmines are performance scale tire and were developed over a two-year period of testing, tuning and analysis.

The split-block center design has been sliced, stepped and recessed for flexibility allowing it to contortion over sharp, loose and even smooth surfaces. The Landmines have alternating solid and cavity pads which is ideal for transitioning from smooth dirt or pavement into loose dirt, mud and rocky terrain. The edges of the carcass has what are described as horizonal grippy pads with edges and channels to provide additional forward climbing bite.

Down within the tread, a lightning pattern, knob plots and connector bars pull the design together to work together at shallow and deep sinking positions. Once power is applied to the vehicle, the tread spacing opens which allows for deep digging, making it a great working tire in dirt and muddy conditions. As the tread rolls down the sidewall, a whole new course of tread and side-lugging is applied. A grippy radial ring provides a consistent rubber contact patch in pinched conditions while in the vertical plane, new traction bars alternate between angular and island mapping for squeeze grip.

JConcepts says that the flexibility of its super-soft green compound combined with the lug arrangement gives the tire a grippy feel but still maintains that all important scale and performance look. The overall 4.72 in. height provides plenty of ground clearance for an abundance of terrain and bossed side-wall logos add detail. The tires include a soft open cell foam insert capable of standing up to the super soft compound but flexible enough for sharp terrain.
