Default AKA red foam life span

So what is the typical life span everyone is getting with AK red foams? How many runs have you gotten out of them before the foam went "flat". Just curious because I haven't ran the new foams yet and was wondering if the foam would go flat quicker with the air gaps between the rim.

Iv heard 3 sets of tires, it depends on track really. Iv gotten 2 sets of tires on 1 set right now n they seem ok but the tracks I used them on were arc n silverstate so they stayed pretty good.

I was getting 5 out of the black. The red should probably get between 3 and 4, but its going to depend on track conditions. I just love that the Red Foam is going in the tires of Nation Proline and Jconcept drivers.
