JConcepts softens up the ‘Chasers’ 1/8 buggy tire

Chasers Black

See: JConcepts
JConcepts has released their Chasers tread in popular ‘Black’ (mega soft) compound. The Chasers rely on hefty, medium lugs which are angular in multiple directions. The horizontal type tread has a striking similarity to the trusty Crossbow tire which has remained a favorite for the last several years. Chasers have a lower, closer lug arrangement which gives incredible responsiveness and bite in medium, high and low grip conditions. The wet and dry condition tire has small recessed cuts in the top of the tread for extra edges and increased formability over terrain. The center overlapping bar treatment increases durability in the highest wear region of the tire.
