The Tusk makes its way over terrain with hefty lugs and sidewall support. The center of the tire starts with a V-shaped lug with multiple steps to the sides for additional grip, while the gold compound rubber flexes and contours to the landscape.
The mirrored aspect to the tire lays out beautifully while alternating rows provide a staggered height affect. JConcepts has added sidewall lugging for pinch grip and gap crawling, and relieved a small portion of rubber for increased flexibility. All traction bars and lugging have relieved cuts and slots to split up the flat surfaces for additional grip in light dirt, dust, and debris. The sidewall lettering is highly detailed on the Tusk, with naming, sizing, and identification.
The flexibility of the gold compound combined with the lug arrangement gives the tire a grippy feel, but still maintains the all-important scale and performance look. The overall height provides plenty of ground clearance for vehicles on an abundance of terrain. The tires include a medium open cell foam insert capable of standing up to the soft compound, but flexible enough for sharp terrain.
