Default 1/8 On Road Rim Confusion

I am confused about 1/8 on road rims for the Mugen MRX4. Am I correct that there are only two types in the world: Serpent and standard? So the Mugen and Kyosho use the regular standard rims, such as the "Circuit Standard Rims" by RB Concepts/Speedline. In particular, I want to order this for my MRX4:

What shore rating is recommended for the front and rear tires for an MRX4? The track is a reasonably clean/smooth parking lot or street with a temperature of about 70 degrees.

Thats a much better price for tires. I know its not the shore you want, but give Sam a call, he has most everything in stock, even if in the site it says out of stock.

Pretty much everyone now has gone to the so called Mugen/Kyosho wheel. Even Serpent uses it now. Only older cars use something different like the old OS1 Serpent wheel or the Picco wheel. Just watch out for the ones that say just Serpent. Those are usually the old OS1 wheel.
