Default Tire Selection

I was wondering if anyone could clear this up for me. Seems as thought that the most popular tire choice seems to be m-grip, s-grip, and 60D slicks of some. Seems that most have some sort of combination of these. I have been driving myself crazy trying to find the right ones on Tower. Seems like there are a million differenet tires from Tamiya. Can anyone PLEASE tell me the part numbers for the following 3 types of tires? I would like to keep an assortment on hand once I order becasue tamiya parts locally are not the easiest to find. THANKS.

Can anyone post a pic of where they located their ESC and receiver? I have a Novak Cyclone C2 and it doesnt have a switch so I have to put it on a convenient location.
This is how I have done it:

Only Tamiya bearings for the M03 are allowed for TCS races? Or can aftermarket bearings be used? Just want to make sure, because the Tamiya ones are so much more expensive!
Thanks!

Different brands are allowed for the mini. I know what you mean with the price. I bought a set from dynamite. I would suggest avidrc.com though better price yet & fast responses. I did not find the company till afterwards.

Tamiya Championship Series(TCS) Rule #2
Any manufacturer’s electronic speed control, radio equipment, servo saver, antenna, antenna mount, pinion and spur gears, spur gear adapter, ball bearing, tire inserts are allowed in all classes.
