Be careful guys, customer here in my shop bought from a reputable on-line shop. He purchased what was advertised on-line as the new prism rubberz in green compound, he recieved the old jac2428 which are not prisms.

Keep checking the distributors. We have been shipping steady for the last couple weeks. We even started shipping greens this week. Our supply is finally good and it is simply a matter of mounting them. Give it a few more days to let the dealers get them in stock.

As I said before, good luck, I'm sure your product will appease the masses once they hit the shelves, [not mine!]
Thankx, Speedy

Quick question for you...

At Carpet Nats this year we ran Jaco greens on the old rims, and I recently read that the spec tires for IIC is the Jaco blues on prism wheels.

I was wondering if the blue compound has changed on the new prism rims and how well this tire will do running on carpet? I have read some people running the blues on carpet but most run the greens.

It just seems to me that the Jaco blues will be a bit hard for carpet!

The blues on the Prism wheel are all new. They were actually developed for carpet, but work well on asphalt too. They have a very low sidewall and seem to be quite consistent on carpet. The best part is ,so far, supply has been good on these tires, as opposed to the greens.

Jack,

I must say that I am in awe of your comment about the "supply has been good" on blues. Have been trying to get some; and, have had a 40 day old backorder with Stormer for them. Have not seen one set of blues on any cars in Northern California yet...including the Speedworld Cup event this past weekend.

You may want to tell Stormer that oranges will not be available. I tried to tell them just yesterday; but, they indicated that oranges were still coming...

Bill
