http://www.kinetixrc.com/ is selling Jaco's for $8.99 a pair. Shipping is cheaper than buying overseas, plus you'll get your stuff much quicker.

Buying overseas is ok but the shipping takes much to long.

I have a whole box of Twisters that I bought from someone getting out of nitro touring car racing, and I have to say, the wheels are the worst quality that I have seen in a long time. Kinda solft, not very true, they don't fit on the hexes very well, and the axle holes have a lot of mold flashing on them. Not only that, the tires all needed to be trued right out of the box, as none of them were true or balanced at all. In fact, most of them were cupped heavily, from what looks like very rushed and high speed sizing. These were ALL new, out of the box tires, too.

I can't say I would ever buy Twister wheels/tires again, if I had the choice. Even though I don't like the wheels, I'd have to look towards Jaco and GQ for nitro foam.

You must have gotten a bad batch or something. I use Twisters and find them to be as good as any tire I have ever used. Many of my friends use them and I don't hear any complaints from them either.

Check them out www.twistertires.com
