Default Jaco Prism 1/8th Scale Wheels

I noticed Josh is using these at the Nationals at 301. They look sweet. How about durability? I hear some of the lightweights from Europe are not too durable, like the Cosmic's.

Hey Jack,
Will these be available next week????

These are the most durable tires I have tryed so far.They are alittle bit heavier than the rest but since the boards jump out in front of my car everynow and then I prefer to use these.I would say these are beginner freindly.

I like them. They wear pretty well. I do like the look of the rim. Very sturdy.

I guess what you guys are saying is that they are available right now. I though Josh was testing prototypes.

thanks
Dan
