Default Losi Tire Compound Order??

I have used the search tool and I was unable to come up with any answer as to the order from soft to hard of losi's tire compounds. Silver, red white pink, blue and green. I found this link on Losi's webpage but It is not clear.

So does anyone know how to put these in order?

Just to make things a little more confusing, try no to thing of Pink as softer or harder, it has a completely different rubber formula that works really well for some conditions. It works really well with traction compounds too.

Losi now has a PDF on their site listing tire compounds. I copied this from it.

<- Firm ------------------------- Soft ->

Violet Silver Blue Pink Red White Green


Violet
Violet compound tires are
the firmest tires. Due to
their firmness these tires are
excellent for on-road driving,
and are recommended for
use as front tires on asphalt
or concrete.

Silver
Silver compound tires are
excellent all-around, firm
tires. Due to their durability
and versatility, they can be
used on surfaces ranging from
loose soil to turf or asphalt.

Blue
This compound typically
performs best in warm
outdoor conditions that
are hard-packed rock or
dirt surface. Blue compound
tires are commonly used
for rock crawling.

Pink
Pink compound tires are
commonly used when racing
indoors on damp clay surfaces.
This compound typically
performs best on high-traction
or “tacky” surfaces.

Red
Red compound tires provide
exceptional bite and tread
life. This compound is
commonly used on dry hardpacked
outdoor racetracks.
Very safe compound for
all conditions.

White
White compound tires will
provide increased grip
and traction on most
surfaces, and are proven to
perform very well in cold
weather conditions.

Green
Green compound tires
offer maximum traction
and durability on a wide
range of track conditions.
This compound provides
optimum handling on both
wet and dry surfaces.

Thanks guys. IDK why everyone can't stick with one scale for firmness on the tires. The aka tires are the easiest no guessing whatsoever. But thanks for all the replies.
