Default Foam Tire Recommendations

I have a FT TC4. I want to buy some foam tires to run on a track set on an old tennis court, where we do not use any additive on the track. The track is a tight twisty course. Any suggestions?

Go with Jaco tires, either purples front and rear, or purple front and double pink rear.

I have several sets of rubber tires, but I wanted to try foam tires. Some other drivers last year were using them with 19 turn motors and modifieds. I just wanted to try foams, just did not know what to buy.

Here in New Zealand we run foam tires all the time.
Use nitro TC foam tires not Jaco or Parma indoor tires.
Jaco nitro shoes, and GRP (fast tires, Ellegi,Power tyres) will work very good.
Try using 37s all round would be a good starting point i think. And then you can see if you want to go harder or softer, depending on how much grip there is. This might sound strange but also try 26mm tires front and rear i think you will find that it works a little better than wider tires on the rear.
Hope this helps.
