    I've searched about foam inserts; methods to remove tires in the oven, finding new inserts, etc. But I haven't found a thread describing how to tell if your inserts are bad. After a session today I randomly squeezed a tire and it felt SUPER soft. So I squeezed them all and at least 2 of them...

    Tyre Foam replacement?

    I've just removed my Kraton tyres from the rims. Reason for doing so, premature ejaculation of tyre Foam at my last bashing session, heavy ballooning probable cause. Can anyone recommend a good foam as a replacement? I'm now going to tape the holes in the rims and vent tyres once I've them...
