Shore rating is for foam tires. I know nothing about rubber since I haven't run them since the early days of TC racing.

Shore ratings pertains to foam tires. Here is a great article on Foams you might find interesting:

What exactly are they running at your track, foams or rubber tires? Usually at tracks you would run foam tires unless its a parking lot, then you might want to go with rubber. Best thing to do is find out exactly what some of the other racers are running out there and get a part number and where they bought them.
