The idea in full scale auto racing is that soft tires are great until they wear out. They can also overheat quickly and lose grip even under normal conditions.

So the strategy is to run the softest tire you can that lasts for the endurance of the race, but also one that doesn't act weird when it gets up to operating temperature.

I would imagine that the same would be true at 1/10th scale. I just read where Lee Martin was having issues with his rear tires overheating at the EOS race last weekend. Since they run handout tires he had no choice to go to a harder compound.
