Default White Rovers, use the stock foam?

I am getting some HB Rovers for my rs10. Just wondering if I should get different foams for them or is the memory foam ready to rock? Thanks

Do some research on the site. The search function will yield all kinds of results for you.

This subject has been hammered to death here in the Tire/wheel section.

The stock rovers foams work, Memories work ok, Proline 2-stage work, Novas foams work. Sedona foams work. F-400's work.

Just do a search on "ROVER FOAMS" and you'll find everything you could need. Any question on rover foam setups has been answered a hundred times already.


Most common foam setup is with the Nova's Double Duece 5.5" foams. The Proline 2-stage foams work just as well IMO as long as the temps are warmer.

Go with Crawler Innovations double deuce 5.5 foams. These seem to be the best for Rovers. Here is a link...

The stock foams aren't bad...I liked them better than the proline memory foam I had previously. I suggest running them with stock foam, then if you don't like it stock, put something else in there.

I'm a big fan of the Novas 5.5 double duce. I have found that they work great in both the Rovers and the Panther Leopards. For me it's the sidewall folding under on a down hill turn on a grippy rock that really shows the difference. My $.02

i run stock foams in rovers. although there is dead space twixed the tire and foam. so far no issues. was looking into the nova 5.5's but thats more than i paid for the tires. If I am going to spend that kind of money i would rather get a better servo and a radio.

@jcboof......thanks for posting those links. I never have good luck using seach.
