Don't the Proline foams last as long as the tyre does?

And when you buy new tyres you get new foams with them.

I dun see a problem

obviously they don't always last as long as the tire or I would have not needed this thread. I had two that were broken, and the tires had nearly no tread gone.

proline foams SUCK hard not only for balancing but Desintigrating in the tire before the tread is even worn...or they Tear as hobdog said......AKA's will work and they will be my suggestion...most all of the foams you posted will work...some might fit a little better or have a little more carcass flex...but still molded foam for hard pack Standard foam for Blown out....at least that's how i see it.

The foam in the AKA's you can reuse 3-4 times on the buggy, Truggy don't know yet but Iwould gues the same.

Thanks for the responses guys. A couple more questions. I think I would like to go with a open cell foam, as at least half of my running will be on a blown out track when I am using my bowties and crimefighters. I was going to go with the panters, but I would like to try the aka's. Are the aka's open cell? And do they work with the proline lpr? If so, where can I purchase them, I did not see them on a mains web site.

the truggy inserts aren't released yett as far as i know......so your kinda SOL there...at least for the time being....AKA's are a closed cell foam...so they are really stiff and dont balloon very much.....the only thing i can think of why they wouldn't fit the Proline's is the fact proline has the ribbs on the inside of the tire.....and AKA does not....there for the tire would Sit on Top of the foam and be that much taller then the Proline tire....so i dunno some one's gonna have to test and see.....i got some unmounted AKA truggy tires...but no Proline's...so i cant test unfortunatly.
