Talking Bsr Touring car tires

I was wondering if anyone has used the new BSR tires for there TC on carpet.
I heard they come pre-trued and ready to go.
Any opinions or info appreciated
Thanks

They do come trued smaller than the JACO tires, but not to the point for optimum racing. If you don't own a truer, they are alot closer for you out of the box. They come right at 60mm. Same size and fit (same rim) as Jaco tires.

I've gone throught a couple sets on my touring car and am on my first set of John's tires for my 12th scale.

For touring, I've not noticed any difference from any other foams and my only complaint with the 12th scale set is I can't get a socket in to adjust the diff without removing the wheel.

I like 'em. They seem to hold up a little better than Jacos and I'm pretty sure they're a buck or two cheaper....at least in my area.

There is no seam across the tires. These work great and hold up as well as most tires the same compound on the market. I have used bsr touring tires with great success at my home track.

They did about six or seven years ago I believe. Not the case now.

If you were to take a Jaco and BSR and put them side by side, you could only tell the difference by the sticker and the glue. John uses a different glue (appears to be thicker) and the tires hold to the rim very well, no fraying from the rim (different than a chunk). The Double pink you find on a BSR tire is the same double pink to would see on a Jaco and comparible to a magenta in other brands.

Last Year Stephen Sobottka won Cleveland in stock TC running BSR tires. He has also made just about every A main in TC in the past year running BSR tires.

Greg, on your 1/12 tires did you run the smaller diff nut that come with your tires? Try running that and you should not have a problem.

I have been running BSR Tires for about 2 yrs. now.
They work great and hold up extremely well.
Try a set or three, you will like them.

John is now set-up through horizon hobby so any local shop should have no problem getting them in.

He makes a good tire. I don't think you'll be dissapointed.

That's good to here, I know alot of shops wouldn't stock them just because they didn't want to "go and set up a new account" outside of the big two. Now that they are easily accessible, they might become more visible at tracks.
