Are you ever going to rotate your tires? Make sure you mark the rims so you dont inadvertantly put the hard foams on the left and soft on the right ... I would try both ways and see what you like better. That said its probably not a bad idea to use matching foams all around if you can help it.

Are foams really that expensive?? I think you are out of your mind running 2 different foams. Your car will react differently to them vs another set of tires with the same foam in each car. But i digress.

what about the Air bag insert's





On a serious note, Dont bother with them, the soft's are pretty hard and they weight a TONNE.
