Try to clean your rims - this should help. If it's not good enough after this also try to sandpaper them or/and your brakes :D

it will help u grip ur rims better................. cos it will roughen up the surface and it will clean dirt... but ur rims will become noisy.... when u brake.... u could oso use sugar solution and rub it all over ur rims

i know that in the trials world, the riders apply tar on their rims. but i don't think this trick can be applied on bmx.

1st, read evancs brake 101 (easy to find if you search).
New brakes can be just as shit as old ones so no need to spend unnecessarily. Try some better pads, adjust them properly and keep em clean with simple green or something like that.

Jesus Christ. If you just learn to work on your brakes, they will out perform anything. Tar, superglue, coke, anything. All that shit ****s up your rims and pads. And your springs.

you jam your foot into the fork to stop dude?!
you are going to fall on your face one of these times

i ride brakeless as im sure a lot of you know i just turn my bike sideways to stop...don't even need to do any jamming of the foot anywhere...kinda like what Vic Ayala does to stop.

tbf theres loads you can do to the brakes that affect the pressure applied to rims before you even think about touching them with loads of shit.
Just get the break wire as short as possible, not hard to adjust. the more tension the more pressure on the rims, u just have to pull harder on ur break levers.
