Default Tire foams

How long do foams generally last you guys? I've used Proline foams and have had a couple sets fall apart on HALF of the tire. I've had a couple long practices and one race on them. I'm not complaining about Proline or think they're foams are falling apart early. I'm just wondering how long your guys' foams last so i can see if I'm doing something wrong. THANKS

Are they molded foams? Water kills foams, if you wash your tires and get the foams really wet while doing so the life span will be a lot shorter.
