This is a pair of JConcepts Pin Swag LP Carpet 2.2" 2WD Front Buggy Tires.
Like the name suggests, the Pin Swag tire combines the outer lugs of a JConcepts Swagger front tire with the dense arrangement of specialty pins. Now optimized as a 2wd front tire, the pins themselves are round and crisp to the top where they climax to a point. Near the sidewall, the Swag enters with a smooth transition and drops off to a ledge giving steering control.
The Swag is split down the center to give a little individual control to contort to surfaces. In between, a stagger section with angular front is placed just behind a vertical rib to complete the design. The tight spacing of the Pin and Swag bite together and minimize wear across the carcass. An already low-profile carcass like the successful Fuzz Bites rolls through the turns and transitions well at high and low speeds.
A unique feature on the Pin Swag and many of the JConcepts carpet | turf racing tires, is the scalloped tire bead which removes a lot of weight from a normally beefy area. The tips of the bead touch off on the inner beads on the wheel which lead to a great alignment but now with reduced rotating weight. During the gluing process, it is also handy to have some breathing room for the glue and the geometry gives many edges and ledges to adhere to. Offered in 2.2” bead mounting diameter fit to popular wheels like the #3376 Mono slim wheels, available in bright white and florescent yellow.
During the racing season, Dakotah Phend reached for a pair of the Pin Swag front tires to TQ and win two of the largest carpet races in the world. At the 1st ever ROAR off-road carpet nationals, Dakotah was completely untouchable while debuting the Pin Swags winning in style. At the Florida Carpet Championships, it was business as usual for the Phenom with another TQ and another clean victory over a world stage of international drivers.
