    Need foam tires for Vendetta ST

    Hey guys, I'm just about to set up my Vendetta ST again for the indoor season. I'm looking for a set of good foam tires that are affordable and last long. I bought some GRP tires from Tower last year and they were pretty expensive. Also, they didn't last too long, either. Chunks were flying off after say 100 or so laps around the track.

    So yeah, recommend me something that looks good, lasts long and doesn't break the bank.

    Will using harder foams make them chunk less? OR using less wall thickness?

    Get these in 1/10th front electric 37 shore and true them down to 58mm. These are the best I have ever used......Gotta order them from the UK though.

    As you might have noticed, I rarely post here.

    Why does anyone rely on a forum? And I am trying again. Hence my purpose for making this thread. I'm not familiar with all the manufacturers when it comes to foams, the best prices around, and where to purchase them online. This was my last resort. I had done several searches through Google and was just hoping someone here might be able to point me in the right direction.

    1/18th was good as far as user content went. There was a larger spectrum of drivers and people who actually raced. This forum seems to be filled with backyard bashers (especially when it comes to the Vendetta). Jae is the only one I'm familiar with here who actually races them. Seeing as how I race on carpet, I'm not able to get much help from him.

    Anyway, thanks for the few halfway decent responses. I'll be back when I'm desperate enough.
