Default which tyres to run??

at the moment i am using some locally made foam tyres on my v-one-rr evo. i am racing on ashphalt which generally wears the foams quite fast. the car grips well, sometimes too grippy for my liking but they do the job nicely.
i am thinking of changine to Jaco nitro shoes or going to use rubber tyres. is using rubber tyres a nono? most people at my track are using foam

I`m not sure who the distributor is in your area, but try some G.Q Foams they are cheap and I would put $ on saying you would never break a rim!

At 9 bucks a pair for the GQ, you won't go broke.

I bought some sets to try out according to fourm members here, and I was sold. There great at the price, your 99% that you ain't going to break a rim, and I forgot to memtion, there only 9 bucks a pair.

If it is a prepared surface then you can run as hard as 42 shore. Thats what I ran at the sedan nats. If it is a car park surface, not permanant, then try 37 shore all around.

Does anyone know where I can get the GQ tires in the US besides rctexas? Rctexas.com shows most of the 200mm tires are out of stock.

If I remeber right, rctexas is the only distributor for them. If they are out of stock they will be quickly be in stock.
The guy that runs the store is a member here, too

Pm Pyramid to get more info on them.

I believe there are 3 direct manufacturer distributor in the US for GQ, try email them directly and asked the nearest distributor to your area. See the webpage address on my post before.

That page doesn't work in any Mac browers. That is why I asked in this forum. I think they are using non-standard javascript. I have already emailed GQ about this problem.
