i don't like foam tires that are soft because they chunk easily. I like the blues because it gives me all the traction i need...

It may look slidey butcompared to rubber tires on our track, that's nothing... I can always gain more by using FXII

whats that in shore rating.

on low grip carpet i use 40 shore front, and 35 rear...and i mean low grip carpet, it is crap.

but then again on some new carpet at the other club i use t27's, i prefer them to foams. as witht he foams you get waaaay to much gripa nd even wit a hard setup it rolls quite a bit

foams only seem to chucnk if you use soft foams on high grip carpet, as your get a lot of grip and tyre fold (causing them to rip)

i would try some softer foams, if still not much grip use some additive.
