I removed bottom rubber on my HP Omen becuase I wanted to change SSD from 256Gb to 512Gb. I destroyed one pice of this rubber.
Where can I buy a new rubbers. I didnt find it anywhere on the net. The laptop is great, but bottom design with this rubber is very poor. It would be better to just put four rubber legs and grant access to all the screws.
People can change disks in this age and time you know?

They cannot be purchased and I have pushed to make them available. (Thanks for reminding me.)
I have upgraded my SSD in my Omen and still using the original feet.
I did aquire a new set, but I wanted to see if it is easy to reuse the old ones.
The trick is to be very careful when removing them. They have a tendency to bend and that bend doesn't go away easily.
Anyhoo, I got them off, swapped the SSD and put it all back together.
When it came time for the feet, I removed all the old adhesive so the feet were clean. I got some Scotch Double Sided tape (The really thin stuff) and put a full strip on to cover the underside of the foot.
Now at this point, you can use a sharp knife (Be careful!) and cut off the excess or do what I did: Place the feet back onto the Omen. Push them right into place firmly. Take an Xacto knife (For all that is good in teh world, be careful!) and cut the excess off while they are in place.
Once done, I close my unit up and placed a couple of heavy text book I have at my desk to keep the pressure on to help them fit better.
It's been months now and I've had no problems with them.
