Roly- Could be soon.... Working on the right compound.

JACO will produce the Rubberz line on a Prism style wheel only. I know of no plans to offer a dish wheel. The way this wheel is designed there is no need for a dish.

I guess you'll have to "deal with it" like us dish haters have had to for the longest time

I think there still are companies making premounts on dish rims so as long as you don't mind not using JACO

I really appreciate all you guys who have tested and tried the tires. I know some of our toughest critics have even come around a little bit.
As well as being strong and durable, another advantage of the new wheel is that it is about 3 grams lighter per wheel than the dish.

Yeah, I know that it's mostly a foam thing, i just don't like it making the move to rubber too. Of course the numbers for different brand tyres seem to mean SFA compared to other companies. An RP 24 is softer than a CS22 while a CS27 is harder than a Sorex 28.


I'd like to hear of any durability testing of the new JACO Prizm Rubberz.

You know... Jack said a while back he didn't make any money on rubber tires, and just did it as a favor. Danny said a while back he didn't think LiPo was very good for racing, and hoped to prove that.

Fast-forward to today. SMC LiPo's have made it more popular than ever with their outstanding voltage, and Jaco's Rubberz on the Prism wheels are looking like the new standard by which other tires are judged. Maybe it's just a sneaky marketing ploy, but I'm becoming a bit of a Jaco/SMC fan. :-) Keep it up, guys, your hard work is appreciated. And I'm the asshole that's been giving you a hard time for years now, so you know I'm not looking for any handouts.

Reverse psychology!? Could it be that you're trying a little of that with your " I'm not looking for any handouts" line? Let me know if it works.

I think Danny would still agree that lipos for the top level of racing could be problematic, but for the average racer (ie the buying public) they do seem to be revitalizing our sport. At least in the USA.
Right now, with the exchange rate the way it is and with us buying the tires turnkey, we make next to nothing. However, as I have said, we must adapt and become profitable if we are to continue making rubber tires. That is why we are bringing the assembly process in-house and we have produced our own wheel. Besides, I need to make something to justify the beating I get from some of you guys online.

Hhaha, naaah, I get to race my sedan like once a month since I moved. There's not much need for me, unless they start making 1/18 rubber tires or off-road. :-(

I don't care what the wheels look like personally. As long as they are tough and tru with good rubber on them, they can be pink with yellow poke-a-dots and dimpled like a golf ball with shiny gold spinners for all I care.

You put a lot of thought into that. I think you really want the rims to look like that
