Hi Jack, sorry I missed your post...
I've never seen white rim, so I guess they rip. I have much less trouble with Parma foams ripping.
As far as fit, I like the offset in the Parma foams. Jacos tend to rub on the shock collars when I run them. I have taken to using an xacto knife while the tire is on the lathe and taking off a millimeter from the inside of the tire to reduce this.
Performance-wise, the Jacos do seem somewhat smoother than Parmas, but seem to wear much more unevenly. Not sure why this is, but when running Jacos, I always get a couple tires than cone pretty badly. With Parmas this doesn't occur so severely.
