Default TC4 tire

Hi, just got back from the track running my TC4 for the first time didn't have a body on just couldn't wait anyway i only went around the track about four laps, and then the car seemed to handle a little funny,took it back to the pits, and when i turned it over the two front tie were crack. these are brand-new jaco first time on the car everything is brand-new when i bought them at the hobby shop he said they would fit, when i got home i read the manual it said 24mm and the ones he sold me were 28mm first question.since i like the wider tire is there anyway running 28mm on TC4 also do they make 26mm would they work. appreciate any help. thank you

Everyone I know runs Jaco 28mm tires front and rear and have had no problems. If they are rubbing on the ballcups you just need to space them out a couple millimeters and you will be fine.

If they are cracked(you are talking about the tires and not the ballcups) and you did not hit anything talk to korgae. He will take care of it. He is the rep for Jaco I believe.
