Default What foams should I run with my super swampers

So I bought some super swampers to run on my yeti with my new proline wheels and initially I ran them with the stock foams that came with the tires. I enjoyed them for a little but then i snapped my rear axle. Since I have removed the stock foams and replaced them with proline single stage closed cell foams. They are much stiffer but there is a gap between the foam and tire. Is this setup better and if it isnít what ways could I improve it.

The gap is fine. Those foams are fine for your Yeti. I run Crawler Innovations Deuces Wild and it has a little gap as well. It's not supposed to be completely full all the way.

Should I plug the breather hole on my wheels as well

Completely up to you. I didn't. I think people do punch vent holes in the tread of the tire to spin out the water if it does get in though.

Proline two stage foams are the best for their tires. I run CI in other tires, but for the Proline tires their two stage foams are perfect.

Do you think I could make 2 stage foams with what I have

If you have closed cell foam and open cell foams anything is possible. Good luck!

dual stage foams in a yeti that never crawls is kind of a waste in my opinion, the small gap with the single stage foam allows for enough tread distortion to grab all the traction you need when ripping and tearing... in my opinion.

For go-fast you're probably right. For crawling I'd disagree.

Yeah, the OP is running a Yeti. I doubt he's crawling with it. I stuck the CI DW foams my Yeti and it helped keep the tires from rolling. I got them before the pro-line foams came out though, but works fine so no point in changing now.
