Default Tires that does not pick up rubles so easy

Is there a tire that does not pick up rubles/dirt from carpet tracks easily..

Im currently on some LRP carpet tires.. they pick up debris so fast. I must clean the tires everytime..

Im asking because i don`t want to be dependent of tire additives. Its a mess and takes time.

I just don`t care about a little loss in grip. Im not racing against people.

I had some Sorex tires those where nice, once you got up to speed the stuff on the tire would go away and i had normal levels of grip. But that was on a different track.

2nd the sorex tyres. Lrp's and HPI tyres are good if there is a grove but are very bad for picking up fluff if a track is temporary and rolled up.

No. I sometimes use LRP 30x's on carpet which is supposed to be a tarmac tyre and they pick up the same as 27 vtec's.
It's more to do with the type of rubber or more to the point a manufactures type of rubber.

I was thinking that a harder compound would pick up less.
