I have never personally had this happen, or even seen this happen with the nitro shoes or any other Jaco tire. I can't believe I have never seen one of these "bad tires" because I have used a lot of tires this year and never had a problem. What size are you running the tires at? What kind of truer are you using? Is your truer bit wore out? I've had a bad bit mess some tires up before so thats always a possibility. I just have to believe something weird is going on for this to happen more then once.

Something else that I just thought off, could it be that you might be using a tire compound? It could be that the compound is attatching the glue. I had a set of 45's that I had for 2 years, put them in a plastic bag after putting some tire compund on them. Those are the only tires I had come unglued.

I've ran at least 100 boxes of tires this year already, and I have not had a tire come unglued. I've seen other brands do it. I even just tried to use a hobby knife and put the tire on the truer and cut off the foam, that isn't happening, but I did find that those knife blades can come out of the holder. Now I know why they always say "DON"T DO THIS AT HOME"

We warranty all our tires from coming unglued and I don't recall ever seeing one returned for that reason. Is it coming unglued or just chunking? Do you see the rim when you peel back the rubber? If so, I want the tire back to see. We will obviously replace them.
Our machines apply a solid "sheet" of CA glue to the wheels. As a result, it is close to impossible for that tire to come unglued. One thing you need to know is that if you file or sand the edge of the wheel too aggressively when truing, it will overheat the glue and break the bond around the edge of the tire about 1/16" deep. This is true for most tires, not just ours. However, with this said, I've never seen one come unglued halfway around. I won't say it is impossible since anything can happen when gluing a tire, but I would bet it is a very isolated incident as opposed to a mass QC failure. If you saw our process, I'm sure you would agree.

I have been using Nitro Shoes for 2 seasons now and can say they are the only realistically priced brand thats is durable with good performance.

I would suggest that you round the edges of your foams smooth to the rim removing any donut overhand, this will greatly improve their durability.

Also with your G4 run a minimum of 3deg rear and 1.5deg front camber, you dont want your tires coning outward.

I'd check the springs on your wheel lever. The rims fit so tight that sometimes you have to push the lever over the outside of the wheel.

..... front tire right?

So it had nothing to do with it being a Jaco! Just didn't get the wheel on all the way. Or hit something that moved the quick release at the wrong time.

yes i had that happin but it is because the jaco rim fits so good that when you push them on that you have to make sure the wheel lock pop's up and fully up sometimes it will go to just the edge and stop.
