Seems to that the heavier a vehicle is the faster it will render the open cell foam worthless.

For better or worse I have gravitated to closed cell foams myself because it is just easier and they last so much longer. I just bugs me to see tires with good tread and ruined foams... just seems like a waste.

That does not fall under the "easier" category though.. I like to do it one time and have it last
