Before coming on here and flaming Jaco, did you ever think of contacting them about the issue? Jaco is a great company and I am pretty sure they would have tried to rectify the situation for you, and most likely even send you out a replacement set of tires.

On a side note; it's is always a good idea to run an extra bead of glue around ALL pre-mount tires.

All premounts suffer from that problem, especially on carpet. As Rhodes says, ALWAYS run a extra bead of glue before use. Dont forget the inside either.

Premounts are a good thing, but they're usually glued like crap.

Yeah, watch out behind you....
At this time we do not glue the tires in-house. This will change in the future and when it does, rest assured they will not come apart. Until then, it is wise, as with all pre-mounts, to glue the edges.

I'm fairly new to rubber tires. I have about 80 runs on pre-mounted RP30s on asphalt. I have not had the rubber lift from the wheel. Jaco, I hope you are watching this situation carefully. If this turns out to be a serious problem with your tires, and they have to be reglued by the customer, I guarantee it will cost you at least one customer. There's no legitimate reason the manufacturer (whoever that is) can't glue the tires just as well as the customer.

It will cost me one customer? Who? You aren't even running them. You're running RP30's. Obviously, we are "watching closely". What may have been lost in all this is the fact that TimV says our tires were much faster. This is the big picture. When we bring the gluing in house- problem solved.

When a person buy's a set of premounts we expect them to be glued properly. I have never had a set of Sorex or RP30's come unglued. Not saying they can not.

Just an FYI...All racers who run premounts glue their tires even if they are new. Simply run a bead of glue around the edge and VOILA!!!!! No more problems. I can assure you that having run pre-mounts from every manufacturer out there that the new JACO rubber tires suffer no more from this no more than the others do.

All it takes is a preventative measure from the racer....

I am hoping the jaco rubberz catch on here in Illinois and Wisconsin were we get 30 to 40 plus guys running rubber tires at club races.

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 ?

If they truly are that much faster, why not run a bead of glue around the edges? I have seen some that are glued great and some that aren't so great. The ones that were suspect we just added a little glue and they were fine. Isn't it a minor inconvenience to do this to pick up a full lap?!!
