3045 would be the front with the best wear and least bite on your list.
3050 may be harder, but it will get a lot of bite.
3142 or 3242 would be the hardest rear on your list. The difference is in the offset of the wheel.

Jack:

You say the X-50 will give a lot of bite despite the foam being firmer. Why is that? Are those made using the rubber normally mounted for rear tires?

I am not sure exactly what kind of rubber it is but it is definitely not normal front rubber. Probably just really hard rear rubber but hopefully Jack will fill us in. Either way it's cool stuff.

Yes, it is 50 duro rear rubber. Believe it or not, some people run this on the front for extreme bite. It wears well and the car has a ton of steering. It is just difficult to drive.

I believe it. I used to run 45 rears on the front with 35 rears on the rear back in the early days of TC racing with a serpent impulse. The car was twitchy and tire wear was horrible but the lap times were insanely fast.

I have tried rears cut down to 26mm on the front. Tons of steering.... too much...traction roll.
