Some of these brands, I find difficult to locate. Does anyone know where to find the "Team Orion fresh kicks" foam tires??? If, so, any place in the U.S.??? I'm stumped!

I totally agree. If you want brilliant performance over a run these are definately not to be overlook. But unless you receive some form of sponsorship like we do I dont think these are completely viable for the average racer who keep us in a job. They have excellent grip but the wear rate is just too high compared to some of the other brands that are around the same price or maybe slightly cheaper in some parts of the world.

I'm afraid I have to disagree (respectfully). At the same actual shore rating I don't think the JACO tire wear is any higher. I heard the same thing but when I measured the actual shore the "other" brands were in fact harder, but with the same shore rating on the label. That may be why some guys running some of the other brands have to run "softer" tires to hook up.

At the Nationals many people running JACO's were running 42's with very little tire wear. I will admit the bite was on the high side, but the softest most of us run JACO's is 40 on most tracks.

Point taken. I understand what you are saying and should have clarified myself more. I agree with what you are saying. Jaco do tend to be more properly matched with all the tires including what the average racer can purchase.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case with other brands (keeping there best matched sets for the top sponsored drivers) like you have pointed out. I was making my statement from testing several brands using well matched foams.

This is interesting because most of the people I talk to say JACO's last LONGER than their current brand. It all comes down to your setup on a given day, track conditions, and the lot number on the particular batch of rubber. We see slight variations from batch to batch in terms of consistency and cell structure, but we must take what we get from the manufacturer. Be careful of anyone who claims brand x is head and shoulders above brand y. It is probably B.S. and their credibility is suspect. I personally select every sheet of rubber that goes in to every JACO tire as I have for the last 14 years. I don't claim to know everything, but I've been around the block a few times. I know the manufacturers of the rubber by their first names and they have visited my house and met my family. We do not sell tires made in Italy, Taiwan, or China and then imported here. We make the tires here, in the US from the best Japanese rubber we can buy. In the end, we must supply a consistent product that is well constructed at a fair price. We do our best.
