That shore may be difficult to find.
What you can do is buy some 35 shore, true them down, and then use Paragon on the tires and put them in a baggy for coulpe of days.
Paragon usuually drops the shore rating approx. 5 to 7 points on 1/8th scale, and 4 to 5 shore on 10th scale.
I use it quite often, and swear by it.
If you can not find it, contact Team Kamikaze and Sam has it in stock.

Am I right in assuming that you want to use them for intermediate conditions in 1/8th scale racing?

Check this: http://www.kiss-tyres.ch/


Also the best full wet tyres are available from this guy...

Jaco makes them but it seems no one carries them. I have a set of 25 rears now and they are amazing. I have no intentions of racing with them just for driving my car on unprepped surfaces. These are the only ones that will halfway hook and get traction.

Such tires are sold as "aqua" and in the language of colours you can find "silver" and "white" from some brands

Super G is where we usually get our 25 shore rubber from. We use it when we raced dirt oval. They have some really nice foam, and again you want it softer put in a bag and treat them with Paragon, it works wonders!
