ummm Abe will haveta answer that 1, but if u mean use the stock front tires on the rear thats a bad idea i think. Not enough traction.

no use the front foams on the rear if i cant get any rear foams. my point being is, are the front foams better than say rubber slicks for the rear? if the foams are better, i would use the front foams on the rear to be better off. if not i will just get some slicks. the rears are wider, duh, but would skinny foams would be better then wide rubbers? that better? sorry for the confusion.

shwookie.

we're talking F1 here right? i'd get 20 degree slicks for the rear since they're out of foams and use new stock grooved tires in front. i haven't mixed slick rears with foam fronts before but it'd be worth a try during practice to see it handles

foams all around work best but soft slicks in the rear is the next best thing if they're out of stock with foams. 20 degree slicks should be available at TTs.

sorry but i don't have spare rear foams. i've installed my last pair on round three hoping there would be more by this next round.
they usually get new shipments on fridays so maybe , maybe not that they will have more. we'll see.

Also, jus somethin to say, when i got the foam tires, the same day i ripped the rear ones half, so u might wanna get the rubber tires for the rear end of the car, and not foams like me, i think im gonna get rubbers tho this sat fo the rear end if they dont have foams.
