Questions?? Losi 8ight 1.0 tires

Looking for some new tires, they have to fit on the stock rims with no mods. I will mostly be using them on a very sandy track, but also will be using them on hard packed clay tracks too. Durability is a must, as I want them to last a while. Will sacrifice a little performance for a longer wearing tire.
So what do you guys recommend?
Cheers!

Pro-line Knuckles. Won't be the greatest traction wise, but will last forever.

what about a crimefighter m2 compound or panther medium-soft compound?

Funny thing here, I don't have a real dry track tire, so I used my softest tire, the GRP soft grips, and they actually hooked up quite well on the track that had hardpacked dry sections and some fluff on others. Definitely not a holeshot that others were running, but very predictable.

I don't think he was looking for hookup but rather longevity.

soft tires don't last as long as hard

true, that is why I didn't suggest an m3 compound. M2s seem to be reasonable out here on the drive stuff for wear and handling.

I know a guy out here who uses XTRs.

Ok, but do the pro-line tires fit the stock (LOSA7750) rims?
Thanks

Almost all buggy tires will fit the Losi wheels.

Losi XBT's in blue compound, the ones that come on the race roller, last a long time and they work very well. Not as much grip as the softer compounds but the 8ight handles very nice on them.
