    Seems like I'm going thru the foams kinda quick, maybe in about 15-20 tanks. Is this the norm with foams? I'm running jaco 28mm blue sedans, don't know the shore on them.

    boiling tires

    You guys ever boil the old rubber off your wheels.
    I could do it on the 2.2" rims and the revo rims, wondering if it will work on the 26mm wheels.

    Looks like the time you buy rubber and a wheel, it would cost about the same as foam. How does foam hold up to pebbles?
    Thanks for the links, new to on-road and learning all the products and tips.
