    Zeros are the best money can buy, only needed on the rear tyres just tape up the fronts.

    Thought I'd piggyback this thread rather then start a new one because I've just purchased some zero growth inserts but my question is, do I need to tape the inside of my Hostiles too? Or are they ok left as is

    The standard foams are fine, but will need some duct tape wrapped around them.
