um with foams they are really ment for racing, or smooth surfaces, if ur running in a parking lot then rubbers are the way to go, if running on something like a tennis court either would be fine, the rating on the tyres is a scale and the lower the number that means they are used in cold weather and on low grip, and higher number means they are used in hotter weather, and on high grip tracks, it tells you when the rubber/foam is the grippyist
