i would say the goosebumps but they dont exatly last long if u drive hard,
holeshots works on hard packed dirt but when it gets dusty they suck and ware fast,the aka city blocks i would go with the soft compond i used them on my 1/8 buggy they are the best when the track is cool and moist they can work on a bit dusty of a track but when it gets rutty and loomy they are bad but they last long. the goosebumps whould be the best out of them get the meduim if u want them to last though,the tire that really looks the best in the dusty or rutty etc is proline crimefighters m3 they hook up man espially when it gets real dusty and they last a good amount of time

For 1/8th Buggy, I like...

AKA I-Beams
Pro-Line CrimeFighter
Pro-Line Bow Tie

I got a set of Pro-Line Revolver's that I'll be trying out soon.
For my 1/10 buggy, i use Pro-Line holeshots.

Your probably going to get a bunch of different replies. Theres no one Perfect tire.
Just make sure the tire you use, is good for the style track you plan on racing.

The track i race on gets pretty dusty and lose.

I love the Losi Eclipse tires in red compound... not bad tires at all.

My #1 choice would be AKA City Blocks, #2 would be Losi Eclipse and #3 would be the Bowfighter setup.

i never tried out bowties or the losi ecilspe tires ,i depends on your driving style on how the tires ware like cheaper tires i mean , of u drive hard and slam the brake into the turn than they proberty wont last a long time
if u drive the buggy like a electric mod 4wd smooth on the throttle than they will last pretty long

Crimefighter's and Bowtie's are imo poor tire's....they break lugs if you dont have the proper compound and last 1/10 the time a set of I-beams/Crossbow's would last....not to mention the grey foams they come with Suck donkey balls.
