Jack do you have any guys running these tires up in Illinois and Wisconsin so we can get a look at how well they run ?

Hey Jack,

Will the tires be available separately as well? (tires only)

This will be great when we run on carpet tracks as this requires different type of inserts....

Thanks,
Eirik

All it takes is a preventative measure from the racer....
I guess I am not a racer.....

For you guys that reglue your new tires, do you run a bead around the outside only, or the inside as well?

Also, how is the usable life on the Jaco tires compared to say, CS27's? For clubs that have a spec tire rule longevity is what matters most, not being a lap faster. At our track, a lot of the new racers start with rubber tires and probably wouldn't know to reglue a new set.

I do both sides and I peal back the tire as much as possible.

After hearing David Spashett having a tire come un-glued at a big race I have always glued them.

For someone that has never done it, shown them how on one tire. Then have them do the next tire while you are watching so you can correct anything that is wrong. Then they should be all set to go.

The word I have heard (remember, they have only been out a few weeks) is that the tire life is very good. We will know more in the coming weeks about how they compare to brand X or Y. I would prefer to let people with experience comment on this. I don't want to sound too biased.

....and this was comparing new set (RP) to new set (Jaco), right? I'm all for a new tire, but lets get real here, .5 per lap and it wears better

There are 2 types floating around (thin & thick rubber) and the thin type most certianly produce tremendous traction, but durability has already been an issue. The thicker production ones seem to be more more on par with TakeOff/RP/Sorex tires.

Most of the greens are the thick rubber. This is what we will use at Vegas. All the tires will be the thick (less air gap) ones. We have some of the thin ones, but are hesitant to release them all since they wear quicker. We did send out some sets, however, to get feedback from customers. I would guess that if you have run greens you have a 25% chance of getting the thin tires and a 100% chance if you run blue or yellow.
Eventually ALL THE RUBBER TIRES WILL BE THE THICKER WALL variety.

I ran a set of greens Saturday and thought they were great. I had no issues with my tires coming unglued, but I may check them before I mount them again next time. I personally have never had a tire come unglued on me unless it was me gluing them up. Premounts for me thus far have been fine no matter whose they are. I am looking forward to running the greens at IIC this year. They RP's last year were a little bit to be desired with flaws in bunch of them. I remember seeing stacks of bad ones at registration be it glue issues or just flawed rubber. I am sure the Jaco's will be top notch.
