i run the orange and yellow ofna foams quite a but.. i have not ran the aka foams yet but a lot of guys swear by them.

to me molded foams hold together a lot better over time and feel much more consistent

I also run the orange ofna foams and like the way they fill. The Pro-line one are to hard for my liking. But thats just what I think.

proline foams Do NOT last forever...thats soo far from the truth its not even funny....proline foams are by far the worst in the industry.

I did not say they where the best Im just saying when I cut the pro-line foams out off the tires they had about 85% life left compared to the Ofna orange that are 95% garenteed to crumble when you take them out. I think that the pro-line ones suck when it comes to handling.

thats cuz proline foams are Sooo horribly out of balance....if they would only smarten up and do a foam like AKA or even a quality molded foam like JC the world would be a better place.

+1 proline foams are horrible. And I don't see how they are lasting longer than ofna's for you. Any I have used have destroyed themselves with just the slightest bit of moisture. I also feel they are very inconsistantly made and far out of ballance. I would never reuse foams anyway. imo if you can afford the brand new set of tires and wheels you can afford to get a set of foams. I like molded and cut foams. they all have different uses. I love ofna oranges for consistancy and life but also enjoy trinity bomb ones when a softer, lighter foam is desired.
