I've always ran non vented tires.

However when I completed my last race and checked out my buggy one tire had the foam move and the tire looked like it was expanded under power.

Since I have re adjusted the foam and added vent holes. I'm assuming that this would stop the foam from moving...

No whether one is better or not.. Who know, but if vented tire does not let the foam move, I'll be moving to that, as an expanded foam really causes issues when driving

The AKA foams are so firm i don't see any reason to vent the tires, no air is being pushed out of those things on landings or when under hard braking.
