Equally premium companies.

More to the point would be:

Of the two companies, what tires from either would you race with?

Edit your OP and you'll get good, solid advice.

I use Gladiators from Proline for the rear and Bowties for the front, also from Proline.

Head out to the track you plan to race at and start asking around what tires are best for that particular track.

Check out AKA and Panther for tires also.

I burned my caliber a off in less then a pack. Good traction though.

I'm more of a badlands person.

Talk to the local guys, what works for us may not work on your track.

Definitely depends on your track.

Generally though smoother/cleaner/drier track = smaller pins, and rougher/looser/wetter track = larger pins.

Also, I'd highly recommend having a dedicated set of race tires and a separate set of street/bashing tires. (At very least a second set for the rear on a 2wd).

You can easily mangle a set of soft compound race tires in one battery ripping around on the street.

^this, good advice.
Bashing is bashing, racing is for money or power or prestige. ...important stuff.
