Jaco Tires are pretty good. The AE team uses them because they are sponcered by them. They hold up pretty good. I personally like the company Enneti. This is an Italian company that uses a high quality foam. u can feel a definite difference when touching them and comparing them with other tires.

I run 42 front, 40 in rear for a high tracktion track at about 87 to 93 degrees. (air temp)

I run all different kinds; Ellegi, Fioroni, Ellegi, Take Off & Team Orion. So far I like the Take off's alot better. I use 37's all around most of the time, for my local track. I think you can order them directly from www.Powers-International.com if not, I know www.racing-cars.com (Schumacher USA) will let you buy them directly, or refer you to a local hobby shop that carries them.

If your a beginner, start off with the solid wheels made by GRP, they are the parent company of Elligi, Fast, Arrow's, Treads, Action, and a few others. They last the life of the rubber, and will not break.

Associated uses Jaco's because they GIVE them to them. they're the MOST FRAGILE WHEELS I"VE EVER USED. not to mention their price.

Give Lee a call at Winner's Circle he carries Elligi and Fast's with a good price.
