Fourth pic down are Hot Shot and equivalent tires. More specifically two rears and three fronts.

Cool, some of those look nice and new too.
Pic 1 - Yokomo Hot Laps
Pic 2 - Yokomo fronts on the left (off early YZ?) and Schumacher full spike rears on the right
Pic 3 - More Yokomos
Pic 4 - Tamiya Oval Blocks - as already said Hot Shot, Boomerang, Big Wig, etc
Pic 5 - Schumacher rib spike fronts and spike rears (sometimes called cut spikes) Top Cat era
I just want virtual points for getting them right if you already know what they are!

That Schumacher style came out around the same time as the original CAT. In fact all that was moulded on the sidewall on early versions was Schumacher and C.A.T.

Used to run them on grass tracks a lot in the UK, the original compounds became known as blue when they started introducing other compounds and was the hardest wearing.
Schumacher still make them now, but pretty much no one runs them anymore as the minispike is the one to have for grip.
