Big Joe foam?

Post by jigsaw351 » Sat Jan 28, 2012 11:52 am

So I noticed the foam that came with these tires seems quite large. Much wider then the tire. Do I trim it to match or cram it all in there. .??

jig,

I just dismounted my pre-glued big joes from their Tech-5 counterpart and the foams are HUGE!?  Not sure if its a result of exposure to acetone or not, even though they're completely dry now.

I'd stuff them in there and try a balance to see how the stuffing affects the rotation. Big Joes have a relatively large sidewall, so they may fit.

Ya the foam is huge and it does fit with little effort. So I'm just gonna leave it.  Hopefully when I get it up and running I won't have some of the wobble and shaking issues that I've read about withe these tires.

how did you dismount them?  I have a set of big joes on dish wheels that I want to get off and put on beadlocks

I used acetone, and although it takes a while, its a clean removal with no hassle. Highly recommended.
