Default Rubber Tires on Carpet, whats good these days?

Sorry if this has been brought up before, but I have a vehicle here I want to outfit with some rubber tires for use on carpet (its not a sedan, but uses sedan hexes like a 1/16 slash, etc). Anyway, I remember awhile back that the HPI advans carpet versions were good, but I figure times have changed so want to see what is the hot ticket now.

Main thing I need of these tires however is that they are 24mm or have an offset if they are 26mm for the front. Rear doesn't matter as I can currently fit the VTA rears on the vehicle.

If the advans are still good, anyone got a cheap price on a set and rims? I found one for $45 shipped, tires and rims full set. Anyone got a better deal?

Sorex 32r's

The only tyre which should be allowed on carpet

The IIC race has specced out Jaco Blue and locally in our race series, that's what we have specced out as well.

The Jaco Blue is a great tire as well.

You are dealing with something a little lower weight so finding a slightly softer tire might be good. I think the Jaco Blue will work but maybe a touch hard considering the weight you're looking at.

will look these up. Thanks.

Anyone else have suggestions, and to clarify, doesn't need to be limited to anything spec or whatever, just need it to be available in 24mm.

For the sorex, what do the different numbers mean?

Numbers denote shore aka hardness - lower the number the softer the tire and vice-versa. 28R's should be fine for carpet. The Sorex's tend to require less camber while Jaco Blues need anywhere from 2 to 2.5 degrees negative camber to work their best.
