Default best rubber tires

Hello,
It has been several years since I raced 1/10 electric touring cars. I am getting back into it.
My local track is sort of small (main straight = 90' long).
We must run rubber tires, but we can use odorless traction compound.
when I was racing a few years ago, Sorex tires were the tires to use. Are these tires still the best or is there something better?

thanks,
tim

Sorex 36r seems to be the choice back here (hot tropical conditions)... but looks like the Tamiya B3 tires are good as well.

I like the Sorex tires if the track will allow them. They are belted and you can put in any insert you want.
Where I race they used to let us run what we wanted, It seems the tracks are all going CS/RP. Now all you can run is RP30's. At our track.

regardless of good or bad we run the tires "the association" requires for races.
and you might aswell start using the tires that are required for races, and then set-up car based on that.
