Default Changing Tire Manufacturer

I am thinking of changing from AKA to JConcepts.

The AKA inserts seem to be a lot harder than the JC equivalent, so do I need to change anything setup-wise on my cars to get the best out of the tires.

I am thinking about going stiffer with the shocks, as the softer inserts will absorb some of the bumps before the shocks are needed. Is this correct?

Cheers for your help
