Mini Z F1 tires

We have a small club in northern Rhode Island..indoor carpet oval. We run 3 classes..Mini Z, F1 and now AMZ.
Our F1 cars are using Nascar bodies and we run a Nascar style oval track. We are currently using Kyosho 20 degree fronts and 6 degree rears. It appears that Kyosho has stopped manufacturing these tires and stock is becoming very hard to find.
Can anyone recommend tires for us to try? We are running on a glued down, commercial...low nap carpet.
Here is a link to our club track:

After doing more research...I would like to know if anyone has had luck running a new tire....KS2520...on carpet.
Apparently, the old tire of choice...PN Racing carpet R106R...has been discontinued, so we are looking for a suitable replacement.

One post discusses fronts and one post discusses rears....are you looking for both?

If you're looking for yourself I have a bunch of unopened K20fronts I could probably part with....hit me up via pm
I wonder what rocket scientists say to their coworkers when one of them doesn't get it?

my custom body album...

Sorry I took so long to get back here.....the issue we are having is with REAR tires..(I should have been more clear).
Apparently, Kyosho no longer makes rear tires for the F1 car...and , of course, those tires seem to work the best on carpet.

Marka now makes F1 tires including rears.

I could not find a link on their website easily so here is a link from our local track shop:
