many years the standard option on 1/10th off-road vehicles has been a
proven 2.2” bead mounting diameter. Times have changed, JConcepts
Bullet 60mm hex wheels are the latest accessory available for the raging
1/10th off-road class. With the recent popularity of a larger wheel,
customers have asked for a genuine JConcepts option in the larger
configuration and boom, it’s been done.
The new Bullet wheels are sized at the industry interchangeable 60mm
and make a statement with their large appearance. Slight concave dish
shaped design on the AE wheels and slightly convex shape on the TLR line
of wheels stand apart giving each line their unique appearance. The
wheels incorporate an outer glue catch that resists excess glue from
running down the wheel face during the gluing process. JConcepts wheels
are manufactured using advanced techniques to ensure trueness and
durability and are branded with the small JC logo for brand
identification and authenticity.
The theoretical advantage to a larger bead mounting diameter revolves
around weight savings and side-wall handling characteristics. The
larger wheel allows for an insert and tire with less material netting an
overall weight loss in all important rotating weight. This is
especially attractive for stock racers always looking to reduce
weight. Modified racers will see more benefit in high-speed stability
and straight-line tracking.
Wheel sets are available for all popular Team Associated, TLR,
Kyosho, Yokomo, Serpent and XRay further establishing JConcepts as the
go to line for all makes and models. 60mm wheels require tires and
inserts designed for 60mm bead mounting diameter and are not completely
interchangeable with their 2.2” counterparts. Although these popular
large wheel sets are not a replacement for 2.2” wheels nor ROAR legal at
this time (2014), they remain a popular tuning aid to racers always
pushing for excellence.
