you can go for pit shimizu PS-0571 front and PS-0572 rear or the new sweep racing V2 (i insist on the V2, the V1 doesn't work) medium front and rear (or soft rear)

You can look here for all tyre comparisions

www.rcformula1.com.au/index.php/tech-tips/tyres

also what Ph3nyz has said are good options.

Just remember when using the PIT SHUMIZU'S slicks they need to fix them to the TAMIYA FOAM rims which is detailed here,

ww.rctech.net/forum/10130806-post93.html

the only Pit tyres that will fit on the RIDE rims are the grooved sets, they have a different internal diameter then the slicks

At the moment the R1 rear tyre works well in hotter conditions, I'd stay away from the fronts as they tend to push mid corner. if the temps get above what temps you have said then they will start to work better when worn in a little.

Also hit up the local F1 drivers for the right tyres, as they have done all the testing for you.

Another source you can read and has just about all the info you need for your area, you just need to read it all to get your answers
