Default foam tires

i have some blue foam tires, and of course that is too hard for most tracks, because i really want purples(and plade(sp)), is it possible to wd40 the blues enough to get them soft enough to be purple like, and should i also true the tires.
i have no money for new tires, thats why i'm askin this.

No, you have to go and get the purples and plaids. They may initially get soft, but after a while they'll come back up to super-hard again.
