Default Tires, rubber, foam, and others.

I agree that the foam tires look cheap, but I have noticed that some of the planes I have flown, landed pretty nice with after market foam tires. (the real stiff hard foam tires are not the same case)

I have a new C160 with 10 wheels (original foam) and it lands pretty nice but it is a fiberglass fuse and I don't want to stress the plane (long wheel base, causing nose to hit a bit harder than I like) if you really grease it there is no problem.

in the end though, I would rather bounce the plane and take the shock out than have the plane take the shock but land stiff.
