Question Track use only tires

Today the sidewalls ripped next to the beadlock on both rear tires. The tires are the HB Rodeo tires used at front and rear. I have my own track also posted on this forum. The track surface changes from hard packed outside lanes to loamy soil in the infield lanes and the Rodeo tires seem to work better than the trenchers I tried. The Trencher tires would slide too much on the hard packed lanes. I can get the infield lanes to pack but after a couple of laps it's loose again
So I am asking if there is a tire simular to the rodeo or a track tire with a better sidewall. I had these tires on my 5T a little over a year, is it possible that they just worn out ?

Did you look at the hostile crushers? They have great side wall bite.
