Default Foams or Rubber????

If I want to run my car in my street (huge) or in an unprepped parking lot, should i use foams or rubbers for my g4? This is prob just a stupid question, but it needed to be asked. Im guessing that rubbers would be ideal since foams wouldn't be able to hook up as well? Thanks

If the traction is at least decent in the parking lot, then foams will be faster

Alright, thanks. I will probably blow off the place 1st too. Should i be concerned about running foams and chunking more on streets? Im running GRP Arrows

Yah, running on parking lots tend to be worse for the tires, but it really depends on the actual surface. If it is not too bad, then the tires shouldn't chunk like crazy.

I would suggest Speedmind tires. They chunk less than the GRP line of tires.
