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

Sponge tyres are urethane tyres!! An additive is placed in the urethane mix during two part mixing which causes the release of oxygen. This is trapped in the urethane as it sets, hence the "sponge" trye effect.
