Default Foams Choice for carpet racing


I am thinking of trying foams on my xxxs touring car for some indoor carpet racing. Checking my LHS webby the choice I seem to have available is:

Jaco Double pinks - 28mm
GRP: 30, 32, 35, 37 and 40 shore 26mm

Which would give a good compromise of grip and decent wear.

Lastly, is there much of a performance difference between rubber slicks such as nosram vtec's. Ie...which is best between foam and rubber. Additive is allowed.

As always ....appreciate your help

Go with the JACO 28mm. Double pink/orange fronts and double pink rears. Start them out about 57.5mm. If you are running stock you might want to try the JACO 2stage tires on 26mm rims, in the same compounds.
