Wheels and tires....F1

Sorry to ask again, of the cars we run at our local the F1.
We are running on a large , carpeted oval...we are running outlaw bodies. Unfortunately, running oval has really taken it's toll on tires.
Kyosho no longer makes the C106R tires...and after MUCH searching...we cannot find ANY...anyplace.
We have been trying different combinations of other tires. We have recently tried the Kenon KS2520 tire....not bad, but we're finding they are not very true. When we mount them on rims they seem to have an odd vibration. Our times have dropped. Also...the cars seem to slide around corners. Yes, we have tried different compounds.
One of the previous tires we tried were pre-mounted on rims and were very true. These worked VERY well...for awhile. They didn't last very long...they became "different" that they became less grippy. We tried all our old Simple Green, alcohol, etc etc. No luck.
We can NOT use any tire additive on this track.
Can someone recommend a grippy ...pre-mounted tire and rim combo for use on commercial, low pile industrial type carpet?
