What tires would be better for a sandy/gravely parking lot

2005 LSS elise, stock with BWR front bar.

I have 2 sets of wheels and tires:

Base wheels with 175/225 AD07's

Lss wheels with 195/225 A048's

I have a theory that since the A048's have very little tread, a true street tire like the AD07's would do better in a sandy/gravely parking lot. Sort of like taking slicks and driving down a dirt road, street tires would have more grip.

I have to be very patient with the A048's because of the amount of understeer I get in this lot and I keep getting 2nd FTD by 1-2/10ths.
