Default Losi tires anyone?

Anyone using Losi tires? I am looking for Losi's equivalents for AKA City Blocks/I-Beam or Proline Crime Fighter, any recommendations?

Thanks!

XTB will be close to the crimefighter
Eclipse will be close to the I-beam/ Bowties

not too sure about the naming of their compounds... red XBT would be equivalent to proline medium, soft or super soft?

in relation to Proline compounds:

Green-like M3
Red-inbetween M3 adn M2
Silver-close to M2
Blue-high natural rubber content. more of a condition specific compound.

we call it EBT. xbt and eclipse. silver, red, green. hardest to softest. losi recently made the green compound softer(didnt advertise it though) to compete with supersoft and m4 compounds.
