I tried foam solid tires and it felt like riding with a flat all the time. Tricky if you hit the divider stripes in the road too. The soap is because they are almost impossible to get on the rim otherwise.

Ultimate solution was thorn proof tubes and putting old tubes with valve cut off between the new one and the tire. 4 years no flats.
