Default ALJ rain tyres: does anyone know them?

Does anyone know ALJ rain tyres? They are foams for 1/10 and 1/8 cars. The shop owner told me they were very good in the wet.
So does anyone has experience with them?

ALJ tyre is a Norwegian brand from Atle L Johansen. Atle has
retired from RC racing but his rain tire is now sold by Antrade AS:

Not a bad price if that's what it takes to get some races going in the Bay Area.

Back when Lakeland was running, a friend took a set of soft foam tires and cut grooves in them and they worked very well.
