Default Sidewall inserts for oval?

I know j concepts sells them for their tires and was curious if this would benefit oval?

I completely cooked my right front tire and when I saw these it made me wonder if the sidewall inserts would benefit lap times. Could you install them on the outside on the right wheels and inside of the left wheels?

Could also glue your sidewalls for additional support if you feel they are rolling over ... also make sure your camber is correct if getting uneven wear ...

We run them on high bite slick tire tracks.

They are glued to the inside of the tire wall, before mounting the tire onto the wheel.

There is a video on the Jconcept website.

There is four in each pack, and are intended to be installed on both sides of the tires.

I have thought about trying the method you mentioned... one on the right hand side of each tire, but haven't yet. Small tire budget LOL
