It’s known as the VE33S, S stands for sticky. IRC made their their V33 tires for a very long time more than twenty years after which 4 years in the past they came out with the gecko tire. However that tire was once extremely flimsy carcass, very easy to get punctures and sidewall cuts and it was just no longer stable sufficient.
So we we had a lot better tire choices than that now. The V33 was always a good solid tire even though it wasn’t about anything exceptional. But it is surely a good stable tire and now even more with the gummy rubber compound that has been added in it.
The V33 is not supposed to wear out real quickly like some of the super gummies. It has excellent traction, it’s got a nice carcass and it got extra rim protection area. Another thing that has been brought in this tire is a tall knob which is good in the muddy conditions and even in Colorado in decomposed granite and it gets real trash in a lot of different types of areas. It has enough spacing but it’s not a super wide spacing which makes it great in rocks roots as well as just about anything else.
It’s not the ultimate sand tire and would not be the ideal mud tire but it’s gonna perform well. In what regards the carcass this tire has a solid carcass. It is a directional tire so in case you get one of these make sure you get the direction right.
