shore I gues is what they call the foam compound and depending on the number the longer they last. For example 35 shore will have better grip, but won't last as much as 40 shores which are going to be harder, but less grippy. I guess you can say it's like the treadware of a regular tire as the number gets smaller the grippier they get, but the sooner they ware out

not really, you can go with 35 all around, or 40's all around, depending on your driving...
