I just spoke to Ray Darroch and he said he ran JACO pink fronts and magenta rears in 13.5 to TQ. He thinks most guys ran a combination of pink and/or magenta. I will find out what Joe ran in 17.5 and...

Why, because they make a valid point? We don't sponsor many drivers for rubber tire. Perhaps 2 or 3 at most. I have no idea who posted those replies. Why can't anyone cut us some slack? I get on here...

I think we are talking about two different problems here. One is "chunking' and the other is "peeling". Chunking is certainly an issue with all foam tires to some extent. Whites and yellows to much...

You probably won't find any right now. We had an issue with the wheels being molded warped so we have been waiting for the replacement batch to arrive. They just came in last week and we are working...

Just a few things here about the JACO's. The blue is listed as a 32, but the rubber is actually a thin walled 40. We use a firmer rubber with a thinner carcass to get the grip of a 32. This is why...

The new inserts are a little wider so they don't allow the tire to move around as much. This should cut back on the friction between the tire and the ribs on the wheel. We will be shipping these this...

Have you tried running a little more camber on the left front? It sounds like the tires might be rolling over and the edge of the tire is rubbing on the ribs of the wheel. Hopefully our new insert...

Yellow is Japanese rubber. It is just more "foamy" and less "rubbery", much like the American foam. Yellow is like a Japanese Green. Pink has more natural rubber and is a completely different type of...
