Default Jaco tire compounds...anyone have a chart?

Just curious if anyone has a chart on the firmness of these. Jaco doesn't seem to have a website(kinda odd for such a big company). The problem I am having is just trying to determine which tire is comparable. There seems to be a shortage right now on some of the compounds from both Jaco and TRC, so I am looking for subsitutes. The double pinks is really the one I am trying to replace from Jaco. A chart would be super helpfull though for future use. Thanks for your time.

Here's Jaco's site, they list all the different compounds and firmnesses on it.

A Jaco double-pink is like a TRC tan. A Jaco double-pink/orange is like a TRC Cyan I believe.. Other then that, everything is the same.

here's a list that ive copied from one of my proline/jaco cardboard tags ...

yellow = soft (20) = high wear/very good traction
green = medium (25) = high wear/very good traction
blue rears = firm (30) = moderate wear/good traction
blue fronts = very firm (40+) = low wear/good traction
blue/orange = med-firm (30-40) = moderate wear/poor traction
aqua = medium-firm (27) = moderate wear/very good traction
white = medium-soft (25) = moderate wear/excellent traction
grey = medium (30+) = moderate wear/excellent traction
pink = soft (25) = excellent wear/excellent traction
purple = medium (40) = excellet wear/very good traction
red = firm (40+) = excellent wear/moderate traction
silver = soft (20) = very good wear/very good traction
gold = medium (25) = very good wear/very good traction

for carpet/asphalt application = yellow, green, blue rears, blue fronts
for carpet application = blue/orange, white, grey
for asphalt special application = aqua
for asphalt application = pink
for asphalt/carpet application = purple, red
for dusty asphalt application = silver, gold

Yea.. Thats what I run. It just makes the car feel overall a lot better. I say just throw them on and see what he thinks. Any changes should be minor. One thing I did notice is that when I went from double pinks to purples and purple/oranges the car wanted to traction roll even more.

The only thing you need to watch out for is tire wear as they do wear a bit faster then purples..

Hope this helps

In most applications for JACO tires the last 2 numbers of the part number is the shore rating.
