You may want to use a set of black rims to
do the mod to. That freakin red clay will stain
white or yellow rims and wings. I've tried soaking
some wings in bleach and they still were stained.
Also, dont forget to bring a pair of muck boots
and a Tyvec suit. It's a mess to turn marshal in.
But it's great to watch a couple girls wrestle
around in it. OH! Yeayaaa!!!!..........

you DON'T USE THE FOAM INSERT after you narrow the tire.
Make sure you use a good Quality glue.

hope this helps

I think it's best to use the foam and cut it down, seal the rim holes and you have a very firm narrow mud tire that will not hold a lot of mud and will actually spin in mud unlike a regular tire. At the 2008 worlds that I am aware of most guys used cut down foams and sealed rims.

Not saying your way does not work though.

We sale these at my shop already done. No need to worry about them flying apart. We have alot of great references as well.

The only reason i can think of to not run foams, would be that the foam would absorb water and become heavy.
