Default Autocross tires for Cold Temps?

Now that the weather is cooling off, curious what you guys run during the winter moths for Autocross.
In TX there are events pretty much all year (Except Dec) and temps can be in the 30's (F). Thinking mostly dry but cold conditions.
I'm due for a set of tires, wondering If I should grab a cheap set of all seasons?

RE71R's are fine in colder temps with some tire blankets.

RE71R is pretty much the best 200tw tire when not hot.
Though I will say that the Nitto NT01's i'm running right now are way better when cold then I was expecting.

NT01's are not an autocross tire... they are a track tire. They will not do well in autocross compared to other tires.

As others have stated, RE71R's are a good choice. They'll do better in the cold than the BFG RivalS, which take longer to heat up and get to optimum operating temp's.

The new Yokohama A052 did really well at nationals this year. They are fast on run 1 and manage heat well. However, be warned they have even more aggressive wear characteristics than the RE71R or BFG. If you are running a car with limited camber, I'd would not recommend these as you will get 60 runs or less.

you will be find with what you have or use your all season daily tires. wait off till events are all over then in winter get some re71's, bfg's, a052's, or 615k+ for next year events. which clubs are you running with scca, er, or Ntaxs.
