    7 x 4 Super class tire foam

    I am now offering Super class tire foams. This first run of Super foams is cut to be 7 inches tall and 4 inches wide. The thickness of the foam is 1 3/4 although there can be variances of 1/16 bigger or smaller. They are cut in foam in strips and then the ends are glued together using a foam specific adhesive.

    This is a lite weight and less dense memory foam. One foam weighs 3.4 ounces. It has a quick reaction time. I have been asked what these compare to, and I will say they are slower reacting then ACE doughnuts, slightly faster than Kreepy Pinks, and much faster than Kreepy Rub Reds. This foam is a much liter weight than the Kreepy Foams and because of it's qualities, it is not as prone to temperature changes, although it has only been tested in 50 degree and above temperatures.

    Here is how the foams look straight from the manufacturer:




    Here they are glued up:


    The foams will come pre-glued.

    $30 for a set of four foams shipped
    USPS Priority Mail to the United States.
    I do ship internationally at buyers expense. Please PM for details.



    I am currently running these foams in my SW2 Clod based Super with Soft compound Panther Plowboys on Pro-Line Cheyenne bead locks. I am very pleased with them over the performance of the old Kreepy Foams I use to run. My front foams are cut to 3 inches wide though. I cut them down by hand using scissors. I did this so the front foams would be softer and allow for more bite with the front tires. I left the rear foams four inches wide for a more firm overall tire. Here is the build thread on my Super:

    I am exploring other Super foam tire options. I can offer custom made foams in non-memory foam in both dual stage or single stage foams. I can also have these memory foams cut in difference sizes. This particular size seems to be perfect for both 115mm wheels and 40 series wheels. The foams have only been fitted into Moab XL's and Panther Plowboys.

    I can do a pair for you, no problem :thumbsup:

    I can send them unglued if you prefer. I am buying the glue direct from the manufacturer and it is there recommend glue specifically for foam. I had been using 3M 77 spray adhesive of my kreepy super foams and they did not hold the end together well. My foam manufacturer told me that it failed because the 3M is a general glue and not foam specific like the glue they use.

    Which Kreepy's are you using?
