Our Nitro tires are competely different then our carpet sedan tires. I don't think you will have to much sucess running our Nitro Shoes on the rug, Also we do not make a 37 shore Nitro tire.
Feel free to try any other make of tires, many racers do, most come back to JACO. I can't tell you why people feel our tires are better, but they do. Look at the results of the largest race's in the world. ( Snowbirds and Cleveland)
Our tires have a lower retail ( unchanged in years) compared to TRC and others. And should be competitve in price.
Not to mention that we are the choice of most major manufactures. Team AE and Team XRAY use our tires exclusily. Atsushi Hara also picks JACO when he races foam.
If we are a dollar or more higher in a shop, it is most likly because the shop owner knows our name and products are worth it in the long run to the consumer!
Try a few different makes and see if you notice what others notice.
