James Racing Tire Prep/Gluing Tips

1. Use non-chlorinated brake cleaner or Alcohol to clean bead of tire.
2. Dremel wheel bead. This gives it a good bonding surface. Clean after dremel with above cleaners mentioned above.
3. Use loctite professional glue.
4. Enjoy!

What James Racing Tires are compared to in other brands:

PL suppressor - Y-Zip
PL lockdown - Revenger
PL fugetive - Defenders
PL blockade - Y-Zip or Revenger
PL switchblade - Wasper

Dot Evo works on wet or dusty tracks and every track condition.
Wasper is like a Hole Shot/Buck Shot.
I-Blocks are amazing on dusty blue grooves.
X-Cross is like a Bow Tie.

The rubber wears like iron and the SS compound is close to a M3 PL and if sauced with PB Blaster, feels like a M4. The 5 rib inserts are like Dirt Techs so they don't break down fast like PL foams do.

I live in Texas and currently in the 70ís-80ís. Lately, occasional 50ís-60ís. And of course the 90ís in the summer and then some.
Thanks.

There is no chart, but traction level is more important than temps. Use SS for low grip, Soft for high grip, and Medium for extreme/abrasive grip levels.

Love the new Truggy Tire. used it this past weekend at the Southern Indoor Championships in Alabama. Worked very well, almost no wear. This tire should work anywhere you run.

Hello Guys,

I need some help to find the right tires. On my local Track the AKA I-Beam in Super Soft work very well on my Truggy. Other Buggy-Guys are running Schumacher Mini Pin but I can't get them now, so I would like to try some James Racing.
The Track is full covert with Hockey/Tennis Carpet.
So I'm not sure what tire is the best. I think the Dot Evo or X-Cross can work.
I hope you can help me...

If you get the Dot Evo, you may be able to alternalty cut a few rows to emulate your Schumacher Mini Pins. Are you running a Truggy or Buggy. I only ask as I believe the Dot Evo only comes as a buggy tire. If you could get the Schumacher Mini Spike or Spiral, those are pretty good on such surfaces as well.

James only makes 1 truggy tire - the Pentangle. It is made for dirt but you can try it on carpet in soft and see how it works.

Hi,

I was running Trggy last year. This Session I'm running Truggy and Buggy, so I need new Buggy tires. I think I will try the Dot Evo.

Try Dot Evo then. Maybe also in medium compound if there is a lot of traction.

Hi All,

I have some Y Zips in super soft, would you recommend using them with Blue/Black type inserts or Yellow inserts?

Track is fairly hard packed with some light dust when dry

Thanks

You are referring to J-I01 and J-I02. As general rule a closed cell mold foam will yield better traction on fairly hard packed dusty conditions where there is minimal bumps

I thought they were both molded closed cell?

James Tires now come with gray closed cell inserts that are the same as dirt tech inserts.
