Default foams? Should all 4 tires and rims have foams?

I just got a set of tires from a board member and only two of the tires had foams in them? Do I need to get foams for the backs too?

depends, on my RC4WD mud slingers (2.2) I have no weights or foams in them...course its solely for speed and tossin mud.


but drive it with out foams, then get foams and drive it...the best way to see if you need anything is drive it....change/put on..then drive again. No one really can tell you with your driving style what you need or don't need....but for starters, I would suggest you put foams in all 4 tires.....but again, depending on what tires your running and how your running the rig.

Yes, You need foams. The only reason to not run foams is if your filling the fronts with BB's, and thats old school, wrapping the wheel with weight works better cause it presses on the whole tire and makes the footprint bigger.

Yup, you'll need foams in all 4, makes for a consistent crawler! X2 on what IndianaMudcat said too! Likely the guy either forgot to include the 2 foams or just used them in something else.

water would be the same as BB's, although on a quad it helps hold you down in the deep stuff.
