    I just waterproof my axial and I want to hit some creek beds but I don't want to ruin the memory foam in my crawler tires. I thought about taping the vent holes in the wheel shut just wanted to know what other options I have

    I've seen some examples of people boiling their tires and removing the foam all together. You would have to Re-glue the tires to the rim and plug the holes after getting the right amount of air in them.
    I've never tried it but I'm sure someone has step by step directions up.

    Hit a few trail runs with some people in the know and seen what they did then put rtv gasket maker on the vent holes then set my truck down on its tires for about 20 min till it dried. Still have really good tire flex and now waterproof.

    Nice. Probably need to do something like that with mine. Those tires get super nasty.

    I just used hot glue and it works perfect.
