Default TC Foams 4 Asphalt Track

I am organizing a club for this summer and looking for a spec tire for TC class and was wondering if the TC foams today are too carpet specific for an asphalt track? Most likely I will go with Jaco Blue premount rubber tires but am curious about foams since they are much cheaper. I am assuming with the low profile, foams would not last anywhere near as long as rubber on an asphalt track so it would end up being more expensive than running rubber. I am fairly new to on-road and don't have much experience running on foams. Thanks for your suggestions.

Good day!

Foam tires are not used mutch anymore in TC, rubber is most common. If foam tires are used you need to chainge gearing as the tire diameter gets smaller and keep adjusting the ride hight as well.

outside the nitro tires are the ticket if the surface is prepped like a nitro track. also most of your standard carpet foam will work .. double pink, double pink orange works well and is easily purchased. Many clubs are running foam and supply is actually available.

thanks for the replies. Was just curious about foams, i will go with a rubber pre-mounted spec tire for the club as it will be much easier for everyone.
