jaco's new tire is not anything special. t + m tires have been doing it for a couple of years. what it is a a white pink rear tire. it has a white outside edge on a pink tire. which I belive takes side bite out without effecting forward bite.

Dave-Jacos tire is something entirely different and its a front tire. I'll let Mike answer any more questions!!


Mike-Looking like a yes on the Mon-TUes. I may need you to hold the fort down for spells if need to go to work or leave at 3 or 4pm. Cool????

Ray... I can do what ever you need for it to be open.. I will be there all days both days... So you can count on me :-)



As for the jaco tire.. It is a two stage tire that i think everyone will want ... I have done some testing the past weeks and so far it is faster and more efficient not to mention less tire wear then normal.... . it is not a combo tire.. I know jack is working on trying to get production down to a science on them so he can have them forsale soon.. Right now there are alot of hours into the tires he has sent for testing so far.. So stay tuned...


Mike

mike,

Do we need to make chassis adjustments for these tires? Also what fronts do you use with them right now?

Also, what tire sizes work best with the new tire.

Thanks,

Michael

Tempest... I did not make any adjustments to my car and it was good... I used double pink fronts... But we might have something for the front also.. So staytuned... As for size. Right now we are playing with the size of the 2nd stage wich will tell ya what size you can run .. but i ran them at 1.85 rear and 1.70 front...


John Q.. I have used 70 front and 50 Rear#3's for the past few years it is a good starting point ...


Mike
