Rubber tires seem to last a while on carpet if you let your setup create most of the grip, and don't try to throw the car like you would with foams. Spec rubber tire racing on carpet is really nice, especially if you do brushless and LiPo with it. It removes a lot of the external factors, and allows you to focus on setup, car preparation, and most importantly, driving. All that other stuff is a headache.
I was roasting rubber tires when I first came over from foam, mostly because I didn't know how to drive with them. As I improve and smooth things out, the tires easily stay fast and consistent longer than foams ever did, and there's none of the added stress of chunks, peeling side walls, uneven wear, rollout, ever changing droop, inconsistent tire diameters/wear, etc.
Rubber tires are really nice. But, dare I say, they may require more discipline and proper setup than foams to get the most out of them.
