From time to time I read people refer to sponge tires and have often wondered what they were all about.I have never laid eyes on any! Could anyone enlighten me?
Pro`s and Con`s?
How good are they compared to rubber or urethanes?
Where can you get them from?
do they fit all cars?
any link to websites that have info on them?
etc etc

cheers, Dave

At our club, we only run sponge tyres. We even use them on our Spirit Peugeots; we use Parma Tuna tyres cut down to size. They are grippy normally, but can provide even more grip with a tyre solution like Parma Tire Traction. However, they provide so much grip that weight needs to be added to the front of the car to stop it understeering, and they do wear at a rate of about 0.25 mm per 15 min club race.
