    Jaco foams are the most popular foams. They come in two compounds. The first version were only stable for strait lines, and poor for turning. I believe the new versions have fixed that problem.

    I have two sets of the Jaco foams, the original type that comes on a white rim and set of the low profile foams that come on a carbon fiber look alike type rim. The low profile is definitely the better of the two because it is much less prone to the wheel chatter of hopping that the original foams did constantly when turning.

    Both these tires are very picky about the surface they will get traction on. If it is textured they work good but if surface is smooth forget it, even with traction compound they wont hook up. I hardly ever run mine because they are so hard and dont have any give to them. The truck almost feels like it is running on stone tires. They do seem to be great for speed runs because they dont ballloon and are very stable at high speeds.

    IMO, the only reason I would get those is for carpet racing.
