Default New JACO World GT spec tire

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response we received at the IIC race for our lilac compound handout tires, we have decided to immediately release these in an effort to help foster this exciting new class. We will produce only lilac front and rear on the "carbon fiber" style wheel for easy identification. We will release part numbers and pricing later this week. The tires will begin shipping to distributors early next week.
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.

Foam.

I don't know about any else, but, I had very little wear on the set of tires that I purchased at this race (IIC). I purchased 2 sets, and only cut one for the whole event, this includes practices and all...

How do the lilac compare to double pinks in grip and wear . Also what stores will be selling these.

If anyone has any pictures, feel free to post them.
