Default *What size foam tires fit onto my car?*

Hi, newbie here.
Anyway great board you got going here.
I'm about to order my first nitro car... Kyosho v-one S.
And i would like to order some foam tires for it in addition, but i'm uncertain on sizes.. unlike electric where basically everyone runs 24mm tires.

So my question is what size will fit onto my v-1s without any modifcations to my car?

As for brands i've decided to go with the well knowns...
Ellegi & Fast Tires

Hardness -42 front, 40 rear
(works well from what i've read on here)
-just mainly for mucking around on the street.


But i have no clue on size of foam?
ALso 1 more question, to the foam requre inserts?


Thanks!

Foam tires do NOT work on Dusty, dirty surfaces like most all streets are. It doesn't take very much dust either.
I have never heard of any problems with Foam tires fitting on the V1S cars. Some Cars need wider rear wheel hexes to fit the 30mm wide tires (or a spacer).

I have heard of people having success using foams on cement surfaced tracks (kinda dusty type). I believe you need to use very soft foams like 35 shore rear and 37 shore fronts. I have not verified this though.
