What kinda of tires don't collect a lot of dust?

My super soft slicks have been collecting a lot of dust in less than a min. when it collects a lot of dust the car seems to spin. will foam or groove tires collect more or less dust?

i have had it with 'dust collectors' as well. after a minute or two they were useless on smooth indoor surfaces due to dust, animal hair, you name it.
i've tried both faom and grooved and i prefer grooved tires. while they still pick up dust, the grooved surface still provides some bite. the foams i used just collected dust like the slicks.
i recently tried the atomic grooved tires form the shop and have been very happy with them. they are super sticky (picked up a peice of paper the chassis was sitting on) and they fairly durable for 10 degree tires.

after 40 mins of running on rough asphalt:

i also have tried the mzr brand grooved tires as well. these are very nice and have more actual grooves but the are thinner and if you run outdoors, run the risk of nicking your expensive square alloy wheels

The harder and smoother the tire is, the less dust it will collect.
