They are called the 26mm 2-Stage foams. Any dealer can order them, they are in stock most places including Stormer.

Do you understand the difference, or are you just wanting the spoked wheel?

thanks, i believe they are just lighter for rotating mass and therefore take off quicker. or maybe grip better because of the inner foam

Does anyone have any suggestions on the type of glue to use around the edge of the tire where the foam is glued to the plastic rim? I have problems once in a while with the foam pulling away from the plastic. I have used medium gap CA it works ok but hard to get it exactly where I want it and it seems to crack on the foam sidewall. I was just wondering if there was other types of glue anyone has tried or maybe a different thickness of CA. Thanks for any help.

I believe you're changing the handling characteristics by gluing the sides of the tires, and not just reenforcing the foam's bond to the rim. As I understand it, gluing them will decrease the side bite of the tire. It seems to be popular at high-traction tracks. The very thin CA seems to work the best.

There's always contact adhesive for after the foam tears from the glued rim...

Yah thats more of my problem. The foam starts to tear away from the rim and just wondered what the best glue was to re-glue it and or stop it from doing that in the first place. It is mainly the rear tires that I have problems with.

Contact cement, rubber cement and fender mender all work well to reglue the foam to the rim when it starts peel. I wouldn't recommend using CA since it will harden the foam and change its handling characteristics.

Use ca, but only glue up to the middle glue seam! You can do more of the fronts if needed to help if you are traction rolling.

Are the part numbers mixed up on Jacos site or everywhere else? On Jacos site it says 4160 is a dub pink front and on the ebay sites and stormer it says 4160 is a dub pink/orange.

Thanks for pointing that out, We will get it changed asap.

You are correct, it should be JAC4160 Double Pink/Orange Front.
With the matching rear being the JAC4156 Double Pink Rear.

So, is the 26mm the set-up for everyone? Or is the 28mm still the popular choice?
