I use the Red OFNA LPR foams on LPR rims to mount my grass tyres.

They are so tight to get on the rims, I have torn one

But I stretch the tyres over the rims tight before glueing. You can see the finished product here http://www.radiorally.org.au/forum/v...p=28547#p28547

I'm assuming you're using Proline LPR tyres?? If you are the profile should be OK. I would not try to cut foam out of the inside or outside diameter.......it will cause the tyre to become loose at speed.

mmm? LPR foams which ones are you talking about because we have not offered an LPR foam, we have 38's and 40 series foams but no LPR's

But I do use 40's in my LPR tires becasue you would not have to stretch them over the wheel and have a flat contour on the surface of the tire.

Damn this doesn't sound good. I have 2 full sets of ofna red foams waiting at the hobby shop. I thought the 38's would be compatible with aka 3.7" rims for truggy. I bought Panther Raptors and can't even come close to getting the bead to the rim because foams that come with them are huge. Did i waste my money?
