I imagine it's in reply to the guy asking about where they can buy an arbor to true the JACO tyres.

More specifically:

Whatch the first time you put the 1/10 Jaco rears on if you get this arbor that does 1/10 and 1/12. I've got one, love not having to change, but to keep the rear in place I have to put the threaded hold down on backwards (knurled side to the wheel) if you dont, the rim is not held down.

No just take a countersink bit and drill the recess in the nut part of the arbor deeper until you can do it up to a tight fit on the Jaco rim.
Mine works fine now.

Hopefully, we will be able to eliminate tires as a variable by offering this wheel/tire combo to anyone interested in running a World GT spec class.
Can you tell me the part numbers for the front and rear Lilac foams that come on the carbon look rims (definitely distributed in the UK).

Thanks

Anyone having issues with the front wheels breaking? Or the Carbon Fiber paint flaking off?

I've never broke any of the Jaco Prism 1/12 wheels, and rarely crack the inside edge of the wheel. Is the plastic between the white plastic used on the 1/12 wheel different from the black on the 1/10 WGT wheels?

These are the same rims that are used for the non-spec tires from what I can tell. Yes, the film will flake off, especially if you blast them with an air hose.. Only our speed spec drivers have been able to bust the bearing hub out of the front wheel, after severe abuse. I think that our GT drivers are much better drivers, thus the wheels last longer.
