I have run both companies tires and I have not found a difference in performance at my local track, I run Parma cyan and magenta and I have run Jaco dbl pink orange and dbl pink on the same car at the same track but on different race days and I say they are pretty close.

I havn't tried mix and match of the companies but it would hurt for you to try the combo.

The Jaco double-pinks are rear tires (typically). Jaco dbl-pink-orange would be much closer to Parma cyans.

JeffB:


I think we should let BiggAlz try it.

since we switched to Parma we haven't felt the need to go back to Jaco's. the wraps kinda interest us but hearing mixed results on the tracks we race on so we'll stay with Parma.

double pinks = Magenta, double pink/orange = Cyan.

I like Parma tires better, mostly because the fit better on the Xray car. They also come unglued much less than the Jacos in my experience.

In terms of non-2 stage jacos vs parmas. the offsets of the jaco tires are different than the parmas. The jaco's will make your car about 2mm narrower, which is neither good nor bad, just different. You can widen out the car with widening shims, but that will give the car positive scrub radius, again not good or bad, just different. Also, althought the shore ratings are similar the grp rubber is a little different and the width of the hard "orange" outer shoulder is wider slightly on the jacos. Again just different, not an advantage or disadvantage. Obviously the 2-stage tires are not really comprable as they are a very different in construction.

Speedo- what do you mean they fit better on your X-Ray car? Almost the entire X-Ray team uses JACO, so they must fit fine. Also, I am not aware of any gluing problems on our tires.

Jack-

Can you run a double pink front and pink rear and how would it differ fromt a pink/orange front and lets say and double/pink or pink rear?

Is a double pink kind of like a double purple front just softer.
