    It is a venting hole, it helps the tire to get back to its shape faster.

    Some wheels have venting holes too but I prefer punching 2-3 holes directly in the tire. It also helps water to get out the tire

    Yes.

    Depending on where you race, if the rims have holes cover those with a bit of tape to keep dirt out also.

    Question: how do you clean the tire without getting water in the foam? :s

    Get a wet tooth brush and just brush them. Most closed celled foams repel water so you should be fine if you have closed cell foams.. Other than that not much you can do.
