What is the hole in the tire for in this pic?
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
Is this recommended to do?
Depending on where you race, if the rims have holes cover those with a bit of tape to keep dirt out also.
Pro-Line has some tire mounting tips that may be helpful for mounting http://prolineracing.com/how-to-tips-tire-mounting
yeah i would also vent the wheels if they call for it
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.
