Default Best tires for concrete?

Ok, I run touring cars on a concrete road course. I just found out that the only tires that I know of that work well, Jaco pre mounted yellow compound, is not being made anymore. Soo... what would work well on concrete? I am guessing that I will need something like a HPI soft insert. Thanks for any help.

OK -- Opening the proverbial "can of worms" here, but...

Locally, our only sedan racing is on a totally un-prepared concrete parking lot...

My best success with my TC3 has been with ProLine 1095 H13's (24mm) with JACO green inserts. Unfortunately, these inserts are no longer being made...

I have also had success with the trusty old Yokomo 206M tires with Yokomo 037M inserts...

Another racer has had great success with Sorex tires and with Take-Off tires, but I don't know the specific compound or inserts....

Sorry I can't be more helpful...
