Yeah, and the outer rim on the 2 stage foams peel off like crazy... go with the Parmas...

2 stages you can't use down to rubber bands either. once the 1st stage goes, chuck em in the garbage.

Parma's are good.

I've actually been using the TRC tires .. cyan/magenta combo and these tires just seem to hold up the best.

Parma foams are awesome.

cyan fronts and magenta rears ( high traction )


the new indigo fronts give a bit more steering and are very nice on low to medium bite.

All of these tires offer different benefits and disadvantages. They all have a different feel to them also. The Parmas have a larger offset than the Jacos do. Some cars will require shims on the Jacos to prevent them from rubbing on the knuckle. The two stage tires work great but they do tend to peel away from the first stage. A little more negative camber solved that for me. You can also run them a little taller to start with and they don't seem to wear as fast as the standard tires while providing a very smooth feel. Just to throw another wrench in your mix, I've been running John's BSR tires for a while now. Double pink orange in the front and Double pink purple in the back. The purple ring on the rears helps with chunking a little bit and frees up the rotation of the car. Best answer to your question is that you just have to try different tires and find what works for you. We've got people running all of these tires locally and everyone of us swears by our own particular brand.
