Default Foam tire compounds?

Can anyone explain what the foam tire compound colors mean? Or point me to a link with a list of the compounds in order of hardness.

Also I just received a 1/12 scale pancar in a trade and am planning on running it at the track here and there, but for the most part it'll be a parking lot racer. Can anyone recommend which compound tires I should use for decent traction on asphalt that has good wear? I assume nobody makes rubber or capped tires for these cars?

Thanks for the help!
Mike

www.bsr-racing.com is all you need. There are color charts and compounds. For 1/12 scale asphalt purple in front and pinks in rear this will depend on traction. Carpet XXpinks/orange fronts, XXpink rears. Hope this helps some.
