Default GRP Foam Tires

I'm getting back into Nitro racing this summer and I want to starting stocking up on tires before the rush. Are GRP foam tires any good and shore rating should I think about getting to start? Asphalt track spayed with grape soda

As far as I know the factory burned down a couple of years ago and they dont make them anymore, those may have been sitting in the shelves for a while.

Are you using 32 and 35 in the rear and 37 in the front?

Mostly the same shore all arround and sometimes one degree shore softer in the front (most people do run 32 in front and 35 in rear). The 32 all arround does give more steer than 35 or 37 all arround.
