Hey guys, I grabbed a set canyon tires for my e-revo as winter tires basedon the recommendation of others. I have some 7171 dish wheels to mount them on just as winter/snow tires.

I'm thinking about mounting them without the foams since they seem much more plyable. Has anyone tried this or have any thoughts experiences to share?

Further to this I'm curious about putting a dab of silicon in the air hole on the inside of the rim to stop water and crap from getting in. Any thoughts or experiences about this idea?

Thanks for any and all input!
