Using 58-170 on MW windows

A home owner from Hebron, CT says:
I have MW windows and I'm looking to buy the 58-170 foam filled weather stripping. This is used on the bottom of my windows from the manufacturer.

Is it possible to use the 58-170 on the top of the window and as the middle strip on my windows rather than the non foam filled bubble type stripping that came with the windows? This would provide a better seal.

This seemed to work when I experimented when I used the original bottom foam filled piece and tried it on the top and middle locations.

Normally, MW windows use a wool pile type weatherstripping, but if foam filled weatherstripping worked in your experiment then it is possible that the 58-170 will do the trick on top.
