40 should be a good start , but look at it how much you want to grip with how much you want the tire to last a parkinglot is low traction so a 35 would suite best but wear and tear can cause them to chunk easier the lower you go , 40 should put up to the asphalt more , while giving at least enough grip. Surely more than rubber tires if you tried that.
Some parkinglots are smooth enough , normally a freshly coated black one. But either way bashing normally puts 30 minutes on a car in no time so the higher the shore the longer you can play for cheap.
So its really up to you. Another note is fronts should be slightly higher in shore. Reasons is the rear tires provide most of the forward traction while front tires provide turning and a tighter provides more side bite, so it should turn better. People play around with the balance for many reasons. Some run harder in the rear to make rear wheel tire stay the same diameter as the front.
The rears like to wear faster than the front , if you let that get out of range too far the rear will spin of more and more and soon your car wont drive worth a bit as it keeps overdriving the car , thus making it spin the rears faster than relative to the front which is obvious itll put it into a spin upon power.
