Default Which touring car treaded tires?

I run at my local track in a touring car class. The track is fairly smooth asphalt that is blown off before we race on it. I do live in AZ, so the surface can get really hot. I know that muchmore 36R slicks work great on the track, but I can't run them in my class. I have a TC3 and am looking for a treaded tire to run that will give some really good traction. I've purchased some hpi x pattern pro compound tires that work ok, but not nearly as well as the slicks I had before. I may be asking for something that doesn't exist, but at least I tried Andy ideas are appreciated.

not much choice when it comes to treaded tires, hpi xpattern belted or unbelted. Use sauce. Run what everyone else runs.

No I haven't, but I would love to give them a shot! If, they work as good as they look - then they would make a hellavah spec tire! If, they're good, count me in!

Who me??? Living on the east coast in PA. "Sneederville" is an inside joke for the locals. Didn't know it was a real place.
