Default Foam & rubber maintenance

Hello guys !

I started this thread to share experiences with storing rubber tyres and foams . What do you do to your tires to keep them in good shape ? I clean my rubbers with brake cleaner after using them , while some say WD should be used while storing your tires ? With foams , I just "clean" them with air compressor ...

Your thoughts ?

BTW : What is the use of those sidewall stickers on 1:10 foams and do you stick them ?

I like to use simple green or a type of degreqser on the rubber tires. I have even tried goo gone and then wipped it off and let them sit. the tires were sticking to my fingers after that. Now for foam tires, I likw to use a semi hard brissle brush just to get the crap off, other wise nothing else. hope this helps.
