Default Jaco Nitro Shoes Tires

Hi Guys,

I have been using GRP for the last 5 years, but my supplier no longer provides these.

I am looking at the Nitro Shoes by Jaco.

What is the difference between the standard ones and the "2-stage" ones other then the $5US price difference??

Can someone that has used both GRP's ad Jaco's for a long time tell me whats better, which last longer etc...

Finally, how close are the shore ratings between GRP foams and Jaco Foams?

Hello Implusepro, the 2 stage is for Electric, what Jaco did was what is smart was basically made the rim larger with a harder fowm so it will stiffin the side wall up with out making the rim larger that is not allowed by R.O.A.R. sized rim, smart thinking. Jaco tires are awesome. Speedworld has great prices on them. wwwspeedworldraceway.com for Nitro shoes

Hope this helps.

for the money Jaco has been the most consistent and best performing tire for me...i would strongly recommend Jaco..(2 stage is Elec. )
Speedworld is a good spot to get them....

There is no such thing as a new five spoke rim.
