Default Proline closed cells w/ jconcept tires

Do the grooves in the proline foams line up with the ribs on the jconcept tires? has anyone tried these together?

Im thinking of using the black "firm" closed cells with some new bar codes

Default AKA

the akafoams in black are the ones to use, but the j concepts tires have a rounded profile, so you may try their blue foams, or sand down the aka foams to curve with the tire.

The grooves line up pretty closely. I think it just comes down to a personal preference on the inserts you prefer. Maifield has been running the JC closed cells with good results.
