Default New JACO foam sedan tires

Hey guys,

Just working on some new upcoming product releases for Vegas and I thought I would share a bit of info

I will have more graphics and info of the wheels up soon in the new JACO R/C Tech banner.

The new JACO Prism sedan series is a whole new line of tires with some very exciting features:
- Larger 52mm diameter wheel.
- Super lightweight ULTRA STRONG plastic.
- Trued to race ready size.
-New, wider selection of compounds.
- Affordable, lower price.

Available in single stage only.

Here is a pic of the new wheel on Ray's car.

The new wheel is 28mm

We will still continue to offer the 26mm 2 stage tires ( JAC 5160 and JAC 5156) and they will remain on the current 26mm wheel.

All our dish wheels are being discontinued. We hope to have these new tires on the market in 2-3 weeks.

Right on, Jack. Looks great. I've been looking forward to these and can't wait to try them.

Any idea of retail and street price?

Unfortunately, the picture does not do them justice. They look really nice in person. Very 3-dimensional.
I don't know the street prices yet, but we are going to get VERY aggressive on our discounts. We are one of only a few companies in the United States who manufactures their own tires. This gives us an advantage over here we intend to exploit.

I will say that I will only run dish. I really do not like the look of those. I am a part time racer so style is important to me.

In my opinion, dish wheels lack style. I think it's great Jaco is getting away from the dish wheel and adding style back to the wheels. First with the non-dish 26mm rims and now these. If these are anything like the 12th scale Prism series of rims that I've seen from Jaco in person...they will look amazing.
