Default 12th tires on asphalt

What tires (brand and shore/colorcode) would you recomend on asphalt outdoor?????
With all brands and different codes on shore i get lost....

I've never tried 1/12 before and i'm just waiting for the snow to go away.
I'll be running 4,5t motor. The temp here in northern norway, 20km north of polar circel, is around 10-15 deg celsius in mai/june and 10-25 in july/aug.

i run 35sh front and 37sh rear on my 1/10 fuel touring and 24 or 28 on el touring.
And i see that most people use 35sh front/double pink and 30sh rear/pink or 32sh magenta fr/rr.(ref jaco tires shore and color)

Hope there are someone who can help me so i can place an tire order as soon as possible

double pink front and pink rear is what I use too, I run in outdoor asphalt. just make sure you always use traction compound (paragon etc) and be patient with the waiting. also if the tract is really dusty, it doesn't matter what you use at all the traction will be bad.
