We can tell you but then we would have to kill you. As previous post said Horizon is pretty much where we got them. My LHS got mine but that is where they came from.

I know blue's are 32s. The easiest way is to just look at the last two digits in the part number. It'll be a 24, 28, 32, or 36 respectively.

Yellow = 24
Green = 28
Blue = 32
Orange = 36

We wanted to distinguish our tires from every other brand so we decided to color code them to be different. We hope to create a new standard with our line of rubber tires. The yellow is equivalent to a 24, green-28, blue-32, and orange-36. There is really no practical correlation between the colors and the numbers. We just wanted to set our stuff apart from the pack.

Questions?? CS27's or Jaco Greens?

I am running CS27's and I am going to replace them in a month and I am wondering if I should get the CS27's again or get the Jaco Greens. I heard people say the Jaco's are better on high traction and the CS27 are a good "all around" tire. Excluding the fact they come unglued-(I glue them anyway) -what one will have more traction?

At this point in time you should get what you can get your hands one as it sounds like there might be a tire shortage coming our way. However, either tire will probably do just fine.

Jack, do you expect any production issues within the next couple of months?

Is Jaco working to address the concerns that were brought up with their tires at Novak? Jack seems like he's usually proactive about these things.

With rubber tire finally starting to catch on, the last thing we need is a spec tire that people are having trouble with. I'd be quite happy to use Jaco's tires if they could at least match the CS27's in longevity, durability and consistency.

I have never had a problem with losing tires off the rims with the other tires I have tried from Take-off, Rp, and Sorex. Being new to the rubber tire group, Jaco probably needs time to update their gluing process. I am sure that they will get it right eventually.
Have you tried gluing them back on at all because thats what i had to do with my Revo. I know theyr not Jaco but it seemed to work for me. i was just bashing and one of them popped off the rim and luckily i had tire glue with me

If anyone has checked the date on this thread dug up from the dead, you would have realised it was made months ago. Since then, I have been taught how to properly prepare tires for racing, and have had no more problems. I didn't check who dragged this thread back from the murky depths, but I am sure it was for a reason that could have been easily posted in a new thread.

Nope, been there and done that. Now if I got foams for free or at a very deep discount like a lot of people are I would give it another try.
