When you think about the early days of Monster Trucks, the most distinguishing object about the vehicle were the giant tires. The Golden Years of monster trucks brought out all the best components of a builder, driver, and innovator into one package. However, if it were not for the big, round, and bubbly tires, the segment might have been lost forever. The Golden Years for 1/24th scale monster trucks by JConcepts are another reminder of the commitment the team has to the beginnings of an industry.
An RC builder or modeler always has a new idea or ideal truck from the past they would like to emulate, and now, with the Golden Years, finishing off the early-era replica in 1/24th scale can be complete. For JConcepts, the slate was once again swiped clean when designing the new tire. With learned behavior from 1/10th scale, it was clear a few things would be added for new performance and scale appearance. The full-cleat tire just looks so vintage, and JConcepts explored new heights and lug creation techniques to ensure the new tire had the depth of a champion.
The 1/24th scale chevron pattern might look run of the mill; however, a lot of work has been placed into these beauties to allow the trucks to grip surfaces ranging from carpet, Astroturf and, of course, dirt. The size of the tire is important, and JConcepts has designed these to have a 1/24thscale appearance that make little vintage monsters, well, monsters. The round profile is there too, with included foam inserts and the design built into the carcass, your truck can have the bubbly look of the 1980’s.
Sidewall lettering is very detailed on the Golden Years, allowing drivers to travel back in time, shine them up and display for the fans. The Golden Years are available in soft, blue compound and supplied with open cell inserts to cushion those hard landings and fill-up the carcass. The superior tires are packaged 4 pieces per package and pre-stuffed with the inserts for a nice, clean, and small footprint item. The tires require the use of #3442 Mini Tribute wheels (not included) available in white, black, and gray colors. In the early stages of 1/24th monster truck competition, the wheels attach to 7mm hex adaptors found on vehicles such as the Axial SCX24.
As always, the tires are backed with JConcepts customer support and racing lineage.
