Default Best 1/10 Sedan Tires For High Speed?

Trying to make my Vattera 1/10 sedan hit 100mph. What tires should I run? Rubber or foam? Preferably something that wont burn off super fast.

+1 on foams. They'll be more stable than rubber.

Been down this road before. Don't waste your time with ballooning rubber. Go with foams—preferably wide foams. Keep in mind, at high speeds, foams will ballon too, but not nearly as badly as rubber.

HA!

Foams for sure at high speeds. Belted might get you there, but foams would be safer.
